How big an injury to flaccid penis would create a venous leak? I hit area, no bruising or swelling after, still can get good erections for many min.
No, very unlikely...: What you described implied the hit is low impact and shouldn't be strong enough to cause sufficient injury to flaccid penis leading to venous leak, which is at times mentioned as the cause for erectile dysfunction and is not related with prior injury but with venous defects in its valves and insufficient compression mechanism to occlude the blood leaking out the penis. So, don't worry about it. ...Read more

A venous"leak" refers to blood leaking out of the penis when erect resulting in a poor erection. Trauma to the penis while erect or flaccid can result in an injury; but it is unlikely that one was sustained if there was no bruising/ecchymosis which would suggest a laceration in a blood vessel or the tunica/corporal wall.

Is my foot broken? I dropped a laptop on my foot sunday night. We iced and elevated it, within 24 hours there was swelling and a bruise forming around the swollen area. I am still able to walk with a limp as long as it's on the outside of my foot. (i hit
So when you say "we iced and elevated it, " we're talking about your foot, not the laptop, right?
You could very well have fractured it, but the only way to tell is with an x-ray.
What you could do is go to an emergency room. Even with no health insurance, they will see you, and they will take an x-ray. If it's broken, they'll wrap you up in something or another and send you on your way to be managed privately elsewhere. But at least at that point, you'll have yourself a diagnosis.
If it turns out it is broken or you otherwise need to seek medical care, it might take you a few calls to find an office that will offer you some kind of discounted fee if you have no insurance. I find myself doing this more and more frequently, as the number of people, especially young people, have no health insurance. I would start by calling podiatrists, who, in my experience, are more apt to offer a discount than an orthopedist.
Good luck with the laptop too! ...Read more
