Penis disorders treatment
Treatment for any type of penile disorder depends upon the underlying cause. Pain can be treated once its cause has been identified.   This is why it's so important to see a doctor or urologist for a correct diagnosis.  We'll discuss some of the major causes and treatments of penile disorders.  This is by no means and exhaustive list and the information we present is not meant to take the place of professional medical consultation.  Please consult a certified medical doctor for a proper medical evaluation for any disorders of the penis.

Erectile dysfunction - Your doctor can offer several new treatments for erectile dysfunction. For many men, the answer is as simple as taking a pill. Getting more exercise, losing weight or stopping smoking may also help.  Other possible treatments for ED include counselling, a penile implant, injections or a vacuum device.

Infections and skin reactions - Antibiotics, antiviral medications, or other antimicrobials may be prescribed for infections. In rare cases circumcision is advised for chronic infection under the foreskin. Proper cleaning of the penis can help prevent future bouts of infection. Please be advised to avoid strong soaps or chemicals, especially those known to cause a skin reaction.

Penile cancer - The most common treatment for penile cancer is surgery to remove cancerous cells.  Radiation and chemotherapy are other treatment options.

Peyronie's Disease - The hard lump that is at the center of Peyronie's disease often shrinks or disappears on its own without treatment.  Most doctors suggest waiting one to two years or longer before attempting to correct it with surgery, which is another treatment option.

Priapism -  To treat priapism, a urinary catheter may be inserted to relieve immediate urine retention.  The goal of treatment is to relieve the erection and preserve penile function. Medications or surgical procedures will be discussed with you if they are necessary.   It is important that you treat any underlying medical condition or substance abuse problem in order to prevent priapism in the future.

Your doctor can offer a number of treatments for penile disorders, based on the cause of your symptoms.  Be sure to visit your doctor or urologist early in order to prevent problems later.
