Balanitis is an infection that can make you uncomfortable in one of the most sensitive areas -- the end of your penis and the loose flap of skin that covers the tip. It can be treated, and it’s often easy to prevent with some TLC. You can get balanitis at any age. If you're circumcised, you’re not likely to get it.
Hypospadias is most often noticed at birth. Not only is the meatus in the wrong place, but the foreskin is often not completely formed on its underside.
Hypospadias is a condition where the meatus isn't at the tip of the penis. Instead, the hole may be any place along the underside of the penis. The meatus (hole) is most often found near the end of the penis ("distal" position).
Penile cancer develops in or on the penis. Cancer starts when cells begin to grow out of control. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas in the body.
What is Peyronie's disease? Peyronie's disease is a condition in which scar tissue (fibrous plaques) develop along the shaft of the penis. These plaques cause the penis to curve or to adopt an hourglass shape. The change in shape is usually only obvious when the penis is erect.
When the foreskin gets stuck behind the head of the penis, in paraphimosis, circulation can get cut off. Men or boys of any age need to take this seriously and see a doctor or go to the hospital immediately.
In male human anatomy, the foreskin is the double-layered fold of smooth muscle tissue, blood vessels, neurons, skin, and mucous membrane part of the penis that covers and protects the glans penis and the urinary meatus.
