OBJECTIVES: To establish the most relevant epidemiological features of the squamous cell carcinoma of the penis (absolute, adjusted and accumulated incidence, incidence density, and epidemic index), as well as its related survival. METHODS: We included all patients with the diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis in the health area No. VIII of Ciudad Real (90,000 inhabitant) between January 1981 and December 2003. Data from the national Institute of Statistics were used for population adjustments. A Cox regression model was applied for survival analysis. RESULTS: The incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis has increased over the last years (yearly increase 5.86%) with a high mortality rate within the first year (median survival 407 days) CONCLUSIONS: It would be recommendable to intensify preventive measures to try a stop the increase in incidence, as well as successful adjuvant treatments to increase cancer specific survival.
