What are penile conditions and treatments?
Penile conditions and treatments relate to issues affecting the penis. There are a broad variety of penile conditions – they range from minor conditions to those which require emergency treatment or surgery. Penile conditions can develop over time, or be congenital (present at birth).
Am I a good candidate for penile treatments?
You may be suitable for penile treatments if you have one of the following conditions:
- Balanitis - which is an inflammation of the penis head (glans).
- Balanoposthitis - which is similar to balanitis but also involves the inflammation of the foreskin.
- Epispadias - a rare birth defect which is characterised by an underdeveloped urethra.
- Hypospadias - a birth defect which is characterised by the location of the urethra opening on the underside of the penis, rather than the tip.
- Penile cancer - cancer of the penis typically starts in the penis's skin cells. The five basic types are; basal cell cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, melanoma and sarcoma.
- Peyronie's disease - a penile condition which involves the formation of scar tissue inside the penis, causing erections to be painful and curved.
- Phimosis and paraphimosis - phimosis is characterised by difficulty retracting the foreskin, and paraphimosis is characterised by difficulty repositioning the foreskin.
- Priapism - a condition which involves persistent erections that can last for hours and are not relieved by an orgasm. These erections can be painful, and not always linked to arousal
