It is not considered a second remission (as a matter of fact we don't use this kind of term). Partial penectomy and lymph node dissection in one month duration is considered as primary disease management. The solitary positive inguinal lymph node might have been there at the time of penectomy, as it was the source to give the cancer cells to the lymph node. Since only one out of 29 lymph nodes was positive, it is considered as very good prognostic sign and shows complete tumor eradication/elimination at this point of time.

Wishing you a happy, fun-filled, prosperous and peaceful 2008.
