I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

If the penile edema is due to injury (during sex or else); this needs an immediate evaluation by a doctor. This may take almost 5-10 days to subside, depending on the severity of the injury. Ice compresses and Ibuprofen will help in reducing the edema. If the injury is significant, surgery is recommended for repair. Otherwise there can be residual bend, during erection.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Penis fracture should be ruled out in any injury.

Please read this report;

Penile fracture: long-term results of surgical and conservative management.

Gamal WM1, Osman MM, Hammady A, Aldahshoury MZ, Hussein MM, Saleem M.


Immediate surgical repair of the penile fracture gave good results and is superior to conservative treatment; however, we cannot distinguish false from true penile fracture accurately to determine on whom we can use the conservative treatment.

It is privilege assisting you.
