Natural History Of Penile And External Genital HPV Penile Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PIN)
The natural history of PIN is not known. Men in whom PIN is diagnosed are usually treated.
The high risk of HPV 16 and 18 strains are the strains most frequently found in PIN.
Penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) is regarded as a precancerous condition.
PIN is a condition where the delve in the top layer of the skin and penis look to be aggressive but in most cases when this is followed over time the lesion does not progress into an evasive cancer of the penis.
The prevalence of HPV in PIN ranges from 60%-100%.
The prevalence of PIN is far greater and much more common than invasive cancer of the penis.
