Men’s Health – What You Should Know About man-hood Fracture!
A man-hood fracture can occur when there is trauma to the erect man-hood.
During an erection, the man-hood is engorged with blood. If the man-hood is bent suddenly or forcefully while it’s engorged, the trauma may rupture the lining of one of the two cylinders in the man-hood (corpus cavernosum) responsible for erections — resulting in a man-hood fracture. The trauma is usually related to aggressive or acrobatic s*xual intercourse or, in some cases, aggressive self service.
A man-hood fracture is a painful injury that’s often accompanied by an audible cracking sound, followed immediately by dark bruising of the man-hood due to blood escaping the cylinder. In some cases the tube that drains urine from the body (urethra) may be damaged as well, and blood may be visible at the urinary opening of the man-hood.
A man-hood fracture requires urgent medical attention. A man-hood fracture can usually be diagnosed with a physical exam, and prompt surgical repair is typically recommended. Left untreated, a man-hood fracture may result in deformity of the man-hood or the inability to have or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction).
