Diseases That May Destroy A Man's Private Organ If They Are Not Treated

WebMD reports that if some illnesses are left untreated, they can eventually destroy the male reproductive organ. Men should always make good choices to protect their genitalia.

Initial Balanitis

Swelling of the foreskin, or private organ head, is known medically as balanitis. Several reasons contribute to its unpleasant potential. This condition can be brought on by a combination of factors, including inadequate hygiene, chronic skin conditions, and infections. Also, this issue can be exacerbated by scrubbing too hard, not cleaning well, or not thoroughly rinsing the soap off the privates after a bath.

The genital foreskin provides a breeding ground for the balanitis organisms. Discharge, a tighter foreskin, itching, painful urination, and other symptoms are all signs of balanitis.

Cancer of the penile genitalia

Penile cancer is a disease that develops in the private parts of males, according to medicalnewstoday. The organ itself is a breeding ground for cancerous cells. More so, it can spread rapidly, much like a wildfire.

A positive note is that if found early enough, it can be treated successfully. Invasive cancers can eventually become chronic if they fail to be treated. A number of factors, including lack of circumcision, smoking, smegma, and human papillomavirus, have been linked to the development of penile cancer.

Third, Priapism

Pripism is another condition that can damage a man's privates. Priapism is distinct from other conditions in that it causes the private organ to remain erect for more than four hours, which can be rather painful.

Priapism can be caused by diseases of the blood, excessive use of opioids, or damage to the spinal cord. Medical professionals can help by removing the blood to prevent further injury to the private organ.

Infection caused by yeast

Although more common in women, yeast infections in men are possible. yeast infections are caused by a fungus. Yeast infections in men cause itching and an abnormally moist feeling in the area of the privates.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. The responsibility goes to stress and nervousness.
