The role of tobacco in penile carcinoma.

​A surge in the risk of penile cancer is associated with tobacco chewing, smoking, and snuffing.

This study investigated the hypothesis that tobacco use increases the risk of penile cancer. Researchers studied the tobacco usage habits of 503 subjects and compared their odds of developing cancer of the penis.
