21st Century Adult Cancer Sourcebook: Penile Cancer (Cancer of the Penis) - Clinical Data for Patients, Families, and Physicians
Authoritative information and practical advice from the nation’s cancer experts about penile cancer includes official medical data on signs, symptoms, early detection, diagnostic testing, risk factors and prevention, treatment options, surgery, radiation, drugs, chemotherapy, staging, biology, prognosis, and survival, with a complete glossary of technical medical terms and current references.

Starting with the basics, and advancing to detailed patient-oriented and physician-quality information, this comprehensive in-depth compilation gives empowered patients, families, caregivers, nurses, and physicians the knowledge they need to understand the diagnosis and treatment of penile cancer.

Comprehensive data on clinical trials is included – with information on intervention, sponsor, gender, age group, trial phase, number of enrolled patients, funding source, study type, study design, NCT identification number and other IDs, first received date, start date, completion date, primary completion date, last updated date, last verified date, associated acronym, and outcome measures.

Penile cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the penis. The penis is a rod-shaped male reproductive organ that passes sperm and urine from the body. It contains two types of erectile tissue (spongy tissue with blood vessels that fill with blood to make an erection):

Corpora cavernosa: The two columns of erectile tissue that form most of the penis.

Corpus spongiosum: The single column of erectile tissue that forms a small portion of the penis. The corpus spongiosum surrounds the urethra (the tube through which urine and sperm pass from the body).

The erectile tissue is wrapped in connective tissue and covered with skin. The glans (head of the penis) is covered with loose skin called the foreskin.
Human papillomavirus infection may increase the risk of developing penile cancer.

Circumcision may help prevent infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). A circumcision is an operation in which the doctor removes part or all of the foreskin from the penis. Many boys are circumcised shortly after birth. Men who were not circumcised at birth may have a higher risk of developing penile cancer.

So here is the story with Cuinn….
Last friday I was taking meghan to the vet because she hurt her knees… when I got up I noticed that Cuinn was not acting right… breathing through his mouth etc… when I got to the vet they couldn’t see meghan despite my appt. and were busy doing very important dentals and sent me to the ER clinic with Cuinn…. when we got to the ER Cuinn had 104.6 temperature and Sepsis… basically severe pancreatitis…

his white blood count was 43,000 and we were very concerned… he stayed at the ER clinic, Craig and I went to visit him on Friday night… and the vet commented that his blood sugar had crashed… because this was pancreatitis they wanted him off all food until his GI tract settled down so he was getting he phenobarbital but not his potassium bromide (KBr) soooo we left and went home….

Saturday morning we went to the visit Cuinn and the vet says that they need to get him to eat…. and he is refusing all food but he seems slightly perkier for a few minutes… the vet came in and said that Cuinn seemed perkier (in comparison) BUT that his blood glucose has tanked to the level that the machine couldnt read it and that the likelihood is that he has an insulinoma or a insulin secreting tumour and (there is a very long story about this vet but we won’t go into that here) and that he has an insulinoma…. so now I am hearing cancer and freaking out…. but it has been less than 24 hours with the pancreatitis….

We go back Saturday night and see a different vet who is much better explains everything and tells us not to panic that the pancreatitis can cause the low blood sugar…. she wants to take another lipase test but the machine wont read the test accurately

Sunday morning I visit cuinn and talk to the vet who is again talking about insulinoma and that his blood sugar is tanking ….. and is so low that meter is unable to read it…. by Sunday afternoon Cuinn is seizing …. and after every seizure they take his blood sugar which is unreadable….

Because his blood sugar is tanking so low they are adding dextrose to his IV bag…. the key is that Cuinn is clearly feeling better and is acting tired easily but more normally…. he is perkier and is barking and sitting in his crate looking around and happy…. he is also eating and yet his blood sugar is "so low" it is unreadable and they have added dextrose back into the bag….

The next thingwe know… Cuinn blows a catheter because he doesnt have good veins… and because there is dextrose in the bag the sugar has now spilled into his leg and created a perfect breeding ground for bacteria….

On Sunday night we noticed he would not put his leg down…. On Monday morning I talk to the vet who tells me that Cuinn no doubt has cancer… an insulinoma which is a pancreatic tumour…. and that we could do a ultrasound but really whats the point… I talk to my husband between my hysterical crying and we decide to just bring cuinn home to keep him as comfortable as we can…. for as long as we can….

Cuinn is now seizing on a regular basis because of his low blood sugar (or so they thought) but this all didn’t make sense to me…. and i kept saying it … plus he had been off his potassium bromide for 3 days…. and cuinn has cluster seizures but the vets kept telling me that the lack of KBr wouldnt do that… but I knew cuinn and knew that it would… but ok….

Two hours later…. I am ready to leave to go and get him and I get a call from the Vet who tells me that basically she saw his glucose readings and it didn’t make sense to her that he was acting so healthy with no blood glucose so she double checked the readings with the big blood chem. analyzer and the machine that they were using was malfunctioning and cuinns doesnt have low blood sugar… that his sugar is normal…. and that she will continue to monitor his blood sugar thoughout the day but it appears to be a malfunctioning meter that they didnt double check….

thats great news right

so i go to get Cuinn on Monday night…. and his foot is the size of a baseball bat…. his leg is so swollen it is like a club…. i took a tape measure to cuinns foot and it was almost 10 inches around at the foot….he has severe cellulitis that is spreading up to his body….. caused by the blown catheter with dextrose in the bag… the dextrose created a wonderful sweet area for bacteria to grow….

Basically it has been touch and go…. he survives the sepsis and pancreatitis… but he still may loose his leg…. the swelling in his toes is going down but he blotches of skin that is dying…. you can see the black spot north or his hock that is dead skin…. his white blood count which had dropped to 19000 is back up to 37 and his blood work is all out of whack due to this new infection….

We are soaking in epsom salts for a half hour 5-6 times a day… massaging to get rid of the edema…. scrubbing with surgical scrub and keepin
