Squamous cell carcinoma of scrotum is not common. It was the first cancer directly associated with a specific occupation i.e. chimney sweeps. We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma of scrotum developed in a patient of stricture urethra with multiple perineal urinary fistulas treated with lay open urethra with buccal mucosal graft. Tobacco exposed buccal mucosa graft can act as a carcinogen for scrotal cancer in patients with multiple fistula and poor hygiene.

Therefore, the underlying genetic effects of these two types of tumor may also be different. We compared numerical aberrations of different chromosomes in...

    The fragile histidine triad (FHIT) gene, encompassing the FRA3B fragile site at chromosome 3p14.2, is a tumour suppressor gene involved in different tumour types including non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). In the current study, we examined for allelic deletion at the FHIT locus in 58 primary...
