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.
Each condition warrants an individual assessment and treatment plan, which will be made upon a personal consultation with Dr. Elist.
