Gentlemen have to amputate “little penis” because subjectively do not go to the doctor soon-Life Health
The patient initially had only a narrowing of the foreskin, but still had regular sex.
The Southern Studies Center, Viet Duc Hospital has just operated on a 33-year-old male patient with penile cancer.
Doctor Nguyen Duy Khanh (Center for Andrology) said that the patient initially only had a narrow foreskin but still had regular sex activities. During that time, the patient was infected with the HPV virus but did not go to the doctor, it was the long wait leading to cancer of the genital organs and consequent removal.
After this surgery, doctors dredge the lymph nodes on both sides, and at the same time, they will plan to recreate the “small penis” for the patient after treatment.
This is a very unfortunate case because the cancer is completely preventable. However, in reality, there are many cases where the “little boy” had to be amputated because of subjectivity and did not go to the doctor early.
According to doctors, the reason why the foreskin narrows easily leads to cancer is because when going to the toilet or having sex, the fluids and residues stagnate, accumulate under the foreskin, gradually causing inflammation. glans and urinary tract. It is the chronic inflammation caused by prolonged narrowing of the foreskin that leads to the risk of penile cancer.
To prevent, doctors recommend that parents pay attention to check for children from an early age, if there is a narrowing of the foreskin, it should be treated as soon as possible.
If the man has signs of inflammation, swelling when narrowing the foreskin; suddenly feel a lump just below the glans, touching may cause bleeding, or have warts, ulcers; appear abnormal dark skin in the private area or any suspicious signs … should go to the doctor soon.
To prevent disease, the first thing to do is to treat narrowing of the foreskin (if any) as soon as possible, then keep the penis clean every day.
In addition, you should practice safe sex to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.
Penile cancer, if detected and treated aggressively at an early stage, can remove the cancer or part of the penis, remove bilateral inguinal lymph nodes, and combine chemotherapy and radiation for radical treatment.
In the late stage, cancer cells can spread throughout the penis, metastasize to bilateral lymph nodes, internal organs in the abdomen such as bladder, rectum … leading to surgical removal of the entire penis, severely affecting quality of life and reproductive function.
If not detected and treated early, cancer cells spread throughout the penis, lymph nodes, groin lymph nodes, the patient has weight loss, hematuria… the risk of death is high.
