Emobileclinic Trending Topic: Penile Injury
The penis is an impressively durable organ. With reasonable care, it can be expected to work dependably throughout life. Just as accident in life may be inevitable, some parts of the human body may not be immune to accident as well, hence, when there is any pain or discomfort in the penile, one can conclude that there is penis accident or penile injury. It is not a myth, some men have had damaged or broken penis.
Penile injury is the rupture of one or both of the tunica albuginea, the fibrous coverings that envelop the penis’s corpora cavernosa. It is caused by rapid blunt force to an erect penis, usually during vaginal intercourse, or aggressive masturbation. Injury or trauma to the penis can be accidental or deliberate. Deliberate penile injury is a particularly violent event that is usually self-induced or inflicted by a jealous partner or their former lover.
Symptoms of penile injury
Instant loss of erection.
Bleeding from the urethra may occur if the urethra is damaged.
Treatment of penile injury
Professional medical advice should be sought immediately. The essential elements in treating a fractured penis are:
Placing of ice packs (always cover with a cloth before applying to skin) support
Blood to be drained and repair
Urethral injuries should always be repaired but urethral stricture (narrowing) occurs in men after surgery.
