Should I talk to my doctor about my penis disorders symptoms?

If you have any symptoms that you think may be caused by a penis disorder, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms may include any signs of inflammation of the penis, including redness, swelling, itching, or other irritation. Signs of infection may include discharge from the penis or growths, sores, or bumps. Erection issues - either not being able to get and keep an erection, or having an erection that's painful or long-lasting - may also be signs of a penis disorder. These symptoms may indicate serious underlying health problems, so it's a good idea to see a doctor if you notice any unusual symptoms.
