The glans cyst of the penis is an uncommon occurrence and was first described by Lantin and Thompson in 1956. These cysts are generally asymptomatic; however, may present with varied symptoms including dysuria, acute urinary retention, and difficulty in micturition. Cyst may also impact normal anatomy of the penis. Here, we report three cases of glans cyst presenting as slow growing, non-tender, soft cystic swelling measuring 1Ã—1.5 to 2.5Ã—2.5 cm size. The diagnosis of this cyst was made primarily based on physical examination and the management included complete surgical excision. Histopathological examination showed monolocular cystic cavity lined by a pseudo stratified columnar epithelium in two cases and stratified squamous epithelium in the third case.
