Schwannomas of the penis are extremely rare but should be included in the differential diagnosis for solid penile tumors. Because most penile schwannomas are benign, we recommend surgical excision only if the tumor causes pain or is growing rapidly. There is no strong evidence linking penile schwannomas with erectile dysfunction. Thus, more cases and studies are required to further clarify the clinical characteristics of these tumors.
