Did You Know?

Penile Fracture is an Emergency

And sometimes, it just happens by accident. Just rolling over on the penis during a nocturnal erection might be enough to cause a fracture.

A fractured penis is painful. Some men hear it crack or pop. There may also be some bleeding or bruising.

If you've fractured your penis – or even if you’re not sure – get to the hospital as soon as you can. You might feel embarrassed, but it’s important to be treated immediately to avoid erection problems later.
