Key Statistics for Penile Cancer

On this page

The American Cancer Society estimates for penile cancer in the United States for 2024 are:

  • About 2,100 new cases of penile cancer diagnosed
  • About 500 deaths from penile cancer

For statistics related to survival, see Survival Rates for Penile Cancer.

Penile cancer is rare in North America and Europe. It's diagnosed in fewer than 1 man in 100,000 each year and accounts for fewer than 1% of cancers in men in the United States. Penile cancer is much more common in some parts of Asia, Africa, and South America.
