Are you worried about your Bent Penis?

What causes Bent Penis?

Erections occur as blood flows into sponge-like spaces in the penis, these spaces then expand. However, if they do not expand evenly the result can be a significant bend in the penis. Usually, this bend is slight and is not cause for great concern, but there are occasions where the bend may be so prominent that it causes pain, disruption of your sex life, and mental stress and embarrassment. 

Other possible causes include:  

  • Injury 
  • Autoimmune disorders 
  • Tissue abnormality.
