When we hear about penis fracture, it sounds a bit strange and we start thinking whether this can happen. Most people are having doubt in their mind that when there is no bone in the penis then how it can be fractured but it is true. Penis can have a fracture too. However, it is not as same as a bone fracture. Before understanding how penis fracture occurs, you have to understand some basic things. If you pull the hand’s elbow upside down it can break, twisting the leg can cause a sprain, applying a high pillow can make neck’s suppleness. You know all these basic things that’s why you work with full attention or care.

But the main thing is that there are many muscles in it which are very soft in general but becomes very hard at time of sexual intercourse.

It occurs due to coercion during sexual intercourse or masturbation in a wrong way and may cause sexual and urinary function’s blockage, damage of penile veins and arteries, erectile dysfunction and curved penis etc. Rapid jerk because of fall down, car accident and activities related to sports may be some other causes of penile fracture.

  1. Treat penile fracture at home- an ice-covered cloth is used to lessen the swelling on the penis or take anti-inflammatory medicine to reduce swelling. Catheter is also used to vacant the bladder and lessen the trauma of penis too and special strip on penis helps position in such a way that reduces pressure. Treating it at home may cause higher level of complications which involve getting pain at the time of erection, a curve in penis and incompetence to get erection. After seeing complications and according to the research, urologist doctors recommend penile fracture’s treatment through surgery.
  2. Treat penile fracture through surgery- Surgical treatment varies due to the seriousness of penis loss. Most of the problems related to this get well through surgery process such as:
  • Problem of blood clotting in the affected area from fracture.
  • Stop bleeding which occurs from fracture.
  • Bleeding due to any lesion or cut.
  • Problem of a man’s urethra, if damaged.
  • An incision in penis skin to approach torn areas and treat it with stitches.

In my opinion, penis fracture’s treatment is necessary and should not be taken lightly to avoid possibility of permanent penile deformity because an untreated fracture leads to problem in sustaining an erection.
