These symptoms can vary and may indicate underlying conditions that require further evaluation and treatment. The aim of this guide is to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing penis symptom/complaint other.

Causes

  • Infection: such as urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), or balanitis (inflammation of the head of the penis)
  • Trauma or injury to the penis
  • Allergic reactions to certain substances or materials (e.g., latex condoms)
  • Dermatological conditions: such as psoriasis, eczema, or lichen sclerosus
  • Urethral stricture (narrowing of the urethra)
  • Peyronie’s disease (abnormal curvature of the penis)
  • Priapism (prolonged and painful erection)
  • Tumors or cancerous growths in the penis

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including the duration, severity, and any triggering factors
  • Ask about any previous medical conditions or surgeries related to the penis
  • Evaluate the patient’s sexual history, including number of sexual partners, condom use, and history of STIs
  • Assess for any underlying medical conditions or medications that may contribute to the symptoms

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough physical examination of the penis, including inspection and palpation
  • Assess for any abnormalities in color, texture, or presence of lesions or discharge
  • Evaluate the urethral opening for signs of inflammation or blockage
  • Palpate the penis for tenderness or abnormalities in shape or size
  • Examine the surrounding genital area for any additional findings

Laboratory Tests

  • Urinalysis: to evaluate for signs of infection or inflammation
  • STI testing: including tests for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV
  • Blood tests: to assess for any underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes or hormonal imbalances

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Ultrasound: may be used to assess the blood flow to the penis or to evaluate for any structural abnormalities
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): may be used in specific cases to further evaluate for tumors or cancerous growths

Other Tests

  • Biopsy: if there is suspicion of a tumor or cancerous growth, a biopsy may be performed to obtain a tissue sample for further evaluation
  • Uroflowmetry: a test to assess the flow rate and volume of urine, which can help evaluate for any urethral abnormalities or obstructions

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to review the results of the diagnostic tests and discuss further management options
  • Provide patient education on safe sexual practices, hygiene, and any necessary lifestyle changes to prevent recurrence or worsening of symptoms
