Background: Transitional cell carcinoma is the most common bladder tumor that can be treated by surgery, BCG instillation, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. This study deals with urethral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in a patient with history of transurethral resection (TUR-T) of bladder transitional cell carcinoma treated by BCG instillation. Case: A 68-year-old man was admitted with gross hematuria, lateral prostatic lobe kissing, and a pedunculated 2×3mm mass in bladder in cystoscopy. He had undergone TUR-T and BCG instillation and had been followed regularly every 3 months with cystoscopy. In the follow up, 9 months later, several pedunculated tumors in penile urethra that were of SCC type were indicated in pathological analysis. Conclusion:: Since membranous urethra is the most common site and TCC is the most common type of urethral cancers in this site, SCC in penile urethra was unexpected. This could be because of chronic inflammation due to treatment and cystoscopic follow ups.
