Hi Bedamed --- like David I can't provide any answers on your question, but, and again like David, I did want to say it is nice to see your name again.

And, I'm sorry you've got yet another cancer issue to deal with.

Bedamed,  Several years ago I developed a lesion on my glans.  My dermatologist thought it might be squamous cell but thought it prudent to treat it with some meds before doing a biopsy (whew!!) on probably the most sensitive area known to man.  Fortunately the lesion cleared up in about 6 wks.  She had only seen two cases of squamous cell penile cancer.  In both cases, the men had to have a penectomy.  Hopefully you have caught it at an early stage.  Here is a link to a medscape site that discusses the various treatment options:
