Can adults develop penis disorders later in life?

Men may develop penis disorders at any point in their lives, including when they get older. In fact, certain penis disorders - including penile cancer and erectile dysfunction - are more common in older men. This may be due in part to the fact that as men age, they are more likely to have other health issues such as diabetes or heart disease, which can lead to penis disorders. Even if you've never had any health problems earlier in your life, it's a good idea to talk to a doctor if you notice symptoms that could be caused by penis disorders.
