What are the treatment options for penis disorders?

There are many treatment options that may be used for penis disorders, depending on the specific condition. If the disorder is caused by an underlying medical condition, treatment for that condition may solve the problem. If it's caused by an infection, antibiotic medications may be used to get rid of the infection. Other medications, including topical creams, oral drugs, or medications injected or inserted directly into the penis, may also be used. In some cases, more drastic treatment may be required. A variety of surgical procedures - including skin grafts, circumcision (removal of the foreskin), and in rare cases, penectomy (amputation of the penis) - may be used to treat various penis disorders. Because there are so many options, it's important to talk to your doctor about what treatment is best for your specific disorder.
