Penis disorders
Talking openly about the penis and male reproductive system is a very personal matter and can sometimes be embarrassing.  We'll outline the basic medical problems associated with the penis so that you can understand when it's necessary to take action.  We encourage you to seek medical help for penis disorders when needed.

Let's take a look at the anatomical structure of the penis first to understand what might be affected and where. The penis has three parts: the root, the shaft and the glans.  The root of the penis attaches to the wall of the abdomen.  The shaft of the penis makes up the length of the body; and the glans penis, is the cone-shaped end (head). The opening of the urethra, the tube that transports semen and urine, is at the tip of the glans penis.
