Abstract

Despite the distinct rarity of carcinoma of the male urethra, the eventual outcome for a significant proportion of patients presenting with this process hinges on the selection and proper accomplishment of surgical therapy. Lesions of the posterior urethra seem to have a worse prognosis and may warrant aggressive therapy. Close attention must be given to the evaluation and treatment of the regional lymph nodes in all cases. The authors review the nuances of the various surgical options for these cancers.
