Abstract

Penile cysts are benign tumors that are incredibly rare. It can be difficult to make a clinical or pathological diagnosis of them. There have only been around 200 cases of this reported in the literature. Even though the most of them are present from birth and asymptomatic, they usually don't become apparent until adolescence or maturity. These disorders seldom impair sexual function. This case involves a 57-year-old man with a 2.5 cm nodule on the prepuce (ventral surface) that developed two years ago and affected his ability to perform sexual acts. After cutting out the lesion, a penile mucoid cyst was discovered by histological investigation. The patient's sexual function had returned to normal at the six-month checkup, and there had been no recurrence.
