The clinical photographs in this case report belong to a 54-year-old man, resident of Delhi, a chronic smoker, and an occasional alcoholic presented to surgical out patient department with locally advanced cancer of the penis. There was no history of high-risk behavior. He was consulting a local practitioner for local itching. Subsequently an ulcer developed over the prepuce, which evolved into an ulceroproliferative growth and incorporated most of the penis. Because of social stigma, the patient did not visit a tertiary care center. On locoregional examination, there was a highly foul-smelling, ulceroproliferative lesion, which involved approximately distal 2/3rd of the penis [Figure 1]. Multiple lymph nodes were palpable in the bilateral inguinal regions [Figure 2]. Venereal Disease Research Laboratory Test and assay for human immunodeficiency virus were negative. Histopathological examination of the specimen revealed well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Presentation of penile malignancy in a Delhi-based patient at this stage highlights the ignorance and social stigma even in urban India.
