    Predicting Regional Lymph Node Metastasis in Carcinoma of the Penis : A Comparison Between Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology, Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy and Medial Inguinal Lymph Node Biopsy

    Br J Urol 81 : 453-457, 1998

           


    Conclusions – Clinical assessment alone is not accurate in identifying candidates for block dissection for penile carcinoma. When nodes are palpable, FNAC
    is accurate and specific.

        


    In men with impalpable nodes, a preliminary medial inguinal
    node biopsy, followed by sentinal node biopsy when
    medial inguinal nodes biopsy is negative, enables accurate identification of patients with metastases in the groin nodes.

        


    When the findings are positive, block dissection can be performed at the same time.
