Chemotherapy for penile cancer is typically given intraveneously but can be applied topically for some low-stage tumors.
Chemotherapy is usually given in cycles in order to allow healthy cells the time to recover. Treatment may be given daily, weekly, every few weeks, or monthly, depending on your situation.
Chemotherapy for penile cancer is often administered in an inpatient setting.
Patients are encouraged to take along something that is comforting to occupy their time during treatment. Since it is hard to predict how a patient will feel after treatment, it is important that the patient has arrangements to have someone drive them to and from their appointment.
