Can penis disorders cause permanent damage?

Some penis disorders are only temporary and can be easily treated, but others may cause more permanent damage, especially if left untreated. Many penis disorders that are caused by infection can be treated with antibiotics or antifungal medications, and they won't usually cause any permanent damage. However, if infections are left untreated, they may have lasting effects such as infertility. Other disorders may cause the formation of scar tissue, which may be permanent unless it's surgically removed. More severe disorders, such as penile cancer, may have lasting effects, especially if they require surgical treatment like circumcision or amputation of the penis. To reduce the risk of permanent damage, talk to your doctor right away if you notice any symptoms of penis disorders.
