Top 2 Penis Numbness Causes

  1. 1.Prostate Neoplasm

    The prostate gland sits under the bladder, near the rectum (end of the large intestine), and it makes the fluid that carries sperm. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States. It is different from other cancers because small areas of cancer within the prostate are actually very common, especially in older men.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will be able to coordinate your care with a cancer specialist (oncologist). Prostate cancer is treated in a variety of ways, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and surgery.

  2. 2.Penile Irritation

    Irritation of the penis is common, and can come from a number of benign causes. Common causes include cleaning with a new kind of soap, cleaning too much, or chaffing.

    You should only clean your penis very lightly with a damp cloth. Do not use soap or scrub very hard. You should not wear tight underwear or pants until symptoms resolve. Petroleum jelly can help with irritation, but avoid lotions or cremes, as the perfumes and other chemicals in them can worsen irritation.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    penis itch, penile redness
    Symptoms that never occur with penile irritation:
    fever, painful urination, testicle pain
    Urgency:
    Self-treatment
