Abstract: Background: Historically surgery for nodes in carcinoma penis was done as staged procedure due to fear of higher morbidity and longer hospital stay. However, in view of the established safety of the simultaneous procedure, very few centres do simultaneous surgery for nodes and primary in cancer penis.Methods: A retrospective analysis of all the simultaneous surgeries for nodes and primary for carcinoma penis done at our hospital, during the period April 2015 to March 2017 were done and various parameters were calculated and compared with historical standards of various series.Results: The various parameters namely wound morbidity, hospital stay and complications were analysed and compared with historical standards. A total of 15 patients during the above mentioned were found to be suitable for the analysis after having excluded patients who had previous therapy and inoperable tumours. The mean follows up period was 12 months (ranging from 8 to 20 months). The mean hospital stay was 15 days (range from 12 days to 25 days). The skin margin necrosis rate was 6.67%, wound infection rate was 6.67% and there were no perioperative deaths. The same was compared with historical standards.Conclusions: Simultaneous surgery for primary and nodes in carcinoma penis is safe and the standard results are reproducible in a rural tertiary medical centre like ours.
