How do penis disorders affect the body?

Penis disorders may affect the body in a variety of ways, depending on the specific disorder. Obviously, all penis disorders cause problems with a man's penis, and various parts of the penis - including the glans penis (end of the penis), foreskin, penile tissue, urethra, or skin - may be affected. Some disorders may cause inflammation (redness, pain, swelling, itching), others may lead to blood flow issues, and still others can lead to the formation of scar tissue. If the underlying cause is another medical condition or an infection, other parts of the body may also be affected.
