NCCN Guidelines and Compendium Updated

Flash Update sent October 24, 2012

NCCN has published updates to the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) and the NCCN Drugs & Biologics Compendium (NCCN Compendium®) for Penile Cancer. These NCCN Guidelines® are currently available as Version 1.2013.

  • For T1, Grade 3-4 penile cancer tumors, the primary treatment "radiotherapy ± concurrent chemotherapy (category 2B)" was revised to read: "Radiotherapy (category 2B) or Radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy (category 3)."
  • For T2 or greater penile cancer tumors, the primary treatment "radiotherapy ± concurrent chemotherapy (category 2B)" was clarified as being for "T2 tumors only."
  • For the management of enlarged pelvic lymph nodes, "radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy" was added as a treatment option.
  • The Discussion section was updated to reflect the changes in the algorithm.
