AbstractPurposeFor patients with lymph node-positive (LN+) penile cancer, the optimal extent of lymph node dissection (LND) is currently not established. We aimed to reveal the potential association between survival and the number of LND in patients with newly diagnosed LN  + penile cancer.MethodsPatients with LN  + penile cancer diagnosed between 2004 and 2015 were identified using the SEER database. The relationships between the number of removed lymph nodes and overall survival (OS), all-cause mortality (ACM), cancer-specific mortality (CSM), and 5-year mortality were tested. Kaplan&ndas...
