A 26-year-old unmarried male presented with voiding difficulty and penile oedema, was initially diagnosed and treated for Mondorâ€™s disease, which is a rare, benign, usually self-limiting pathology of anonymous origin. When he failed to respond to conservative management, a biopsy from glans penis was taken which revealed it to be moderately differentiated Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC). Apart from being an old manâ€™s affliction, usual presentations of penile cancer range from ulcerative lesion to exophytic growth. Thus, its presentation as thrombosis of dorsal vein of penis is astounding as depicted in this case.
