Penis health is an important part of man’s health. Many conditions can affect penis health and function leading to stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems and affecting the quality of life. Penis problems can also be a sign of an underlying health condition.
Not all penis problems can be prevented. However, routinely examining your penis can give you greater awareness of the condition of your penis and help you detect changes. Regular checkups also can help ensure that problems affecting your penis are diagnosed as soon as possible. While you might find it difficult to discuss problems affecting your penis with your doctor, don’t let embarrassment prevent you from taking charge of your health.
