Penile schwannoma is a rare, encapsulated tumor of the nerve sheath with less than 30 cases reported in literature till date. Here is one such rare case of a painless slowly progressing tumor on the left dorsal side of the penis in a 19-year-old male. The nodule was detected in MRI as well defined T1 hypointense and T2 STIR mixed signal intensity lesion measuring 2cm × 1.4cm in the deep fascia of dorsal nerve of penis. Complete resection of the mass is the management which prevents future recurrence. Histopathology findings of palisading nuclei of cellular Antoni A and between them was less of Antoni B area with numerous foam cells confirm the findings of Schwannomas.
