Epidermoid cyst in the penis is uncommon and only a small number of cases have been reported.

The elastic mass was non tender, freely movable within the dermis, and had a smooth surface Fig. Figure 2. Excision of the cyst was performed under loco-regional anaesthesia through a semi-circular incision Fig.
A dermoid cyst of the penis has not been documented previously in the literature. We report a young Caucasian who had an important swelling of the penis dating back several months. On examination a subcutaneous mass on the dorsal aspect of the shaft and prepuce was present.
Epidermoid cysts represent common benign tumors occurring anywhere in the body but very rarely in the penis. Here, we describe the case of a patient with a penile epidermoid cyst presenting as an ulcerated lesion of the coronal sulcus, thus mimicking penile cancer. A year-old Caucasian man presented with a three-month history of a rapidly growing asymptomatic ulcerated lesion in the ventral portion of the penile coronal sulcus.
