Abstract

Penis is an extremely uncommon site for metastases to occur and is often associated with very grave prognosis. Most of the secondary tumors originating in the penis have primaries from prostate, urinary bladder, and gastrointestinal tract. We hereby report a 65-year-old man, known case of carcinoma urinary bladder, who came for FDG PET/CT for metastatic workup. PET/CT study revealed FDG-avid mass lesion in the root and shaft of the penis, making it suggestive of metastases, which was confirmed later by MRI correlation.
