    High number of amputations to treat penile cancer reported in Brazil

    Brazil is one of the three countries with the highest incidence and mortality from penile cancer

    A report from the Brazilian Society of Urology (SBU) stated earlier this month that over 6,000 penile amputations have been recorded in the South American country over the past ten years to treat three out of every 10 patients diagnosed with penile cancer. The condition can be avoided with simple hygiene measures and HPV vaccination, the SBU also explained.
