Tobacco Exposed Buccal Mucosa Graft—A Potential Carcinogen for Scrotal Cancer
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.
