SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE SCROTUM
Introduction: Squamous cell carcinoma of the scrotum is a rare tumour. It was the first cancer directly linked to occupational exposure to carcinogens (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons).
Clinical Case: A 59-year old man was referred with a one year history of a painful scrotal ulcer, 8 cm in diameter, associated with genital lymphedema. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. The extent of the tumor and the patient’s general condition did not allow any therapeutic approach, and death occurred 18 months after the first symptoms.
