Penis Deformities | Penis Anomalies
Penis deformities and anomalies may be caused by conditions associated with congenital abnormalities of the urethra or penis. Other conditions, such as penile trauma, penile cancer and corporal fibrosis, can also lead to penis deformities and anomalies. In cases of gender reassignment, as well as unsuccessful penile enlargement operations conducted by other physicians, cosmetic and functional deformities may occur.
Penis Deformities Causes:
- Penile agenesis (aphallia): congenital absence of the penis
- Penile duplication (diphallia)
- Microphallus (micropenis): normally formed, but abnormally short penis
- Penile torsion: counterclockwise left sided penile twisting
- Lateral penile curvature: one sided hypertrophy of fibrous tissue, penile torsion, Peyronie’s Disease
- Penoscrotal transposition: reversed penile and scrotal positions
- Webbed: web or fold of scrotal skin obscures the penoscrotal angle
- Buried penis: penis is buried in a fold of skin and/or suprapubic fat
- Megaprepuce: extensive foreskin, resulting in a buried penis within the prepuce
- Previous failed penile surgeries: penis reconstruction, penis augmentation
- Hypospadias / Epispadias: abnormal positioning of urethral opening
- Phimosis / Paraphimosis: tight foreskin
- Glans trauma
- Lesions on the penis: HPV, cancer, etc.
