Video endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy in penile cancer: Systematic review.
CONCLUSION: Video-endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy contributes to less morbidity with a lower- rate of cutaneous complications and less severity. Furthermore, VEIL gives lower hospital stay without changing in initial oncologic outcomes. Although we need longer series to stablish the oncologic long-term results.

Devayani Niyogi, Jarin Noronha, Mahendra Pal, Ganesh Bakshi, Gagan PrakashIndian Journal of Urology 2020 36(1):8-15Malignant penile neoplasms are commonly squamous etiology, with the inguinal nodes being the first echelon of spread. The disease spreads to the pelvic lymph nodes only after metastases to the groin nodes, and this is the most important prognostic factor in penile carcinoma. While treatment of penile carcinoma with proven metastases to the inguinal lymph nodes mandates ilioinguinal lymph node dissection, the treatment of patients with impalpable nodes is more controversial. Overtreatment leads to excessive tre...
First introduced in 2006, the multi-dose human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can prevent most cervical and anal cancers among children and young adults exposed to the virus. It can also prevent the majority of both HPV-driven oral and penile cancers.
We present a case of BLT that was managed with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by phallic sparing surgery.
We present a case of an 83-year-old man with solitary metastasis to the penis from prostate adenocarcinoma. The clinical presentation and imaging features of penile metastasis from prostate cancer and the other primary penile tumors are discussed.
Conclusions: Glans resurfacing is an emerging new appealing surgical technique that is already a recommendation in the EAU guidelines for the treatment of premalignant and superficial penile lesions. The overall satisfaction rate and recovery of the sexual function are acceptable, and it can be considered an ideal procedure to treat superficial penile cancer.

Conclusions Vaginal-receptive penile sex in the last 12 months was associated with a 5-fold increased odds of cervical high-risk HPV infection among TM. Findings can inform future population level study of associations between sexual behaviors and hr-HPV risk, which could lead to more individualized approaches to screening.
ConclusionsIn this study, we found a very low rate of adherence to the EAU guidelines on systemic treatment for PeCa. Further investigations are needed to clarify whether this missing adherence is a consequence of limited individual knowledge level or of the low grade of guideline recommendations.
CONCLUSION: Video-endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy contributes to less morbidity with a lower- rate of cutaneous complications and less severity. Furthermore, VEIL gives lower hospital stay without changing in initial oncologic outcomes. Although we need longer series to stablish the oncologic long-term results.

In 2018, the number of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) reported in the United States reached an all-time high. This is worrisome for many reasons. Having an STI can raise risks for HIV, infertility, pregnancy complications, and infant death. Fortunately, all of these outcomes can be avoided if people receive appropriate treatment. What are STIs? STIs are illnesses caused by microorganisms passed between people during sex. An STI can affect anyone who is exposed to it. Syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia are the most common bacterial infections. Trichomoniasis, a protozoan infection, is also diagnosed freque...
