What causes penis disorders?

There are a variety of things that may cause penis disorders. Sometimes, genetic mutations may cause disorders like Peyronie's disease and phimosis. Other illnesses or medical conditions, such as diabetes and nerve problems, may also lead to problems with the penis. Infections and sexually transmitted diseases, which may be caused by virus or bacteria, can also lead to penis disorders. Injuries that cause swelling or the formation of scar tissue can cause certain penis disorders.
