Hemipelvectomy has been performed on 7 occasions for cancer of the penis recurrent in the groin. Three patients are alive and free of tumor 4, 7 and 10 yrs later. Four patients died within a yr of operation. Hemipelvectomy provides a resonable survival rate in carefully selected, otherwise incurable patients with recurrent penile cancer.
