Abstract

Survival for penile cancer is high but treatment can have a long-term detrimental effect on urological function andquality of life. Owing to its rarity, it is difficult to include men with penile cancer in research about their condition.The aim of this study was to identify aspects of their diagnosis and treatment that they would want exploredin penile cancer research. The study employed a participative, mixed qualitative methods design; it utilizedfocus groups and patient-conducted interviews, combined into a 1 day ‘pilot workshop'. The data were analysedusing framework analysis. ‘Early signs and seeking help', ‘disclosure of a ‘personal' cancer' and ‘urological(dys)function' emerged as three key themes. Men with penile cancer want research about their condition toexplore early signs and helping seeking, disclosure of a ‘personal' cancer and urological (dys)function. Researchcould use methodologies that include consideration of the chronological narrative of the experiences of men withpenile cancer, which could be applied in clinical practice by integrating opportunities to explore specific aspectsof their experiences at appropriate times along the care pathway.
