Blood Clots & Penis: This common condition a blood clot or thrombosis in the penis can be very disconcerting. It can change the shape of your penis and can be very painful. Infections can occur which can complicate this situation. Time and leaving the penis alone can lead to the blood clot re-absorbing. If the clot is painful; or the shape of the penis is changing, or with any other acute worry please see your doc.

Spare the rod: Penile thrombosis is a severe condition which involves clotting of blood within the corpora cavernosa (chambers which become engorged to produce an erection). Scarring can occur causing a curvature or problems with future erections. See a urologist quickly, a specialist for the urogenital area or go to an emergency room.
