The Teaching Point

Solitary metastasis to the penis from prostate adenocarcinoma is rare, with the more common primary penile squamous cell carcinoma being the main differential diagnosis. On imaging, penile metastases typically arise from the corpora cavernosa, as opposed to squamous cell carcinoma which typically involves the skin of the glans penis. One should always review the urogenital tract (i.e. prostate, bladder) for any incidental primary tumor in the presence of a penile lesion on MRI.

Abstract
Penile metastasis from prostate adenocarcinoma is rare and the disease is usually disseminated at presentation. We present a case of an 83-year-old man with solitary metastasis to the penis from prostate adenocarcinoma. The clinical presentation and imaging features of penile metastasis from prostate cancer and the other primary penile tumors are discussed.
