Penile Injury

Several types of injuries affecting the penis are fracture, entrapment, amputation, rupture (or tear), and strangulation. Penile fractures are relatively rare. Penis fractures while it is in an erected state. Sudden lateral movement of the erected penis during masturbation or sex leads to its fracture. Amputation of the penis occurs during road accidents and wars. Strangulation can be caused by blood supply cut-off due to rings and rubber bands that some men use for extended erection. Prolonged strangulation can lead to necrosis and gangrene. The zippers of the pants cause entrapment of the penis, especially in small boys.
