5 Strange and Scary Things Your Penis Experiences as You Age

October 06, 2015 2 min read

There's no doubt that as you age, your body experience's a significant amount of changes. The same goes for penises. In fact, no matter how healthy you may be or how active you are, there are big changes in store for you. Brian Steixner, MD, the director of the Institute of Men’s Health for the Jersey Urology Group provides the nitty gritty. This is what happens to your penis as you age. The Droop Your scrotum will droop as you get older. It's an unavoidable result of the loss of muscle mass. The most extreme result is called the "splash down" syndrome, in which your scrotum actually hits the water when you sit down. There Will Be Shrinkage—Permanent Shrinkage As you age, you will experience a persistent, progressive loss of size. This is because your normal cells get replaced by non-elastic fibers called collagen, which in turn reel in the apparatus in its entirety. Gaining weight attributes to the loss of this length as well, so keep a close eye on that waistline! Erectile Dysfunction Did you know that there are actually more than 30 million men with this issue? The reason behind it is blood loss. “Having ED is like having a heart attack of the penis,” explains Steixner. “And preventing it involves pretty much the same advice you give to someone with a heart condition. Eat well, exercise—control those and you should be fine.” Going Around the Bend As you age, you develop curvature. This is due to repeated trauma from things like sports and sexual activity, in which scar tissue accumulates along the length of your penis. “Into your 60s and 70s,” says Steixner, “it can get worse and worse. I’ve seen patients (whose penises) look for all appearances like a question mark.” The Big C While the risks of prostate and testicular cancer are very real and discussed regularly, there’s also a risk of skin cancer on the penis itself. Are you a nudist or a regular visitor of the tanning bed? You're at a greater risk. “Stay out of tanning beds, and if you are uncircumcised, keep the hood clean,” urges Steixner. “In extreme cases, a complete removal of the penis is required,” Steixner says. “It happens. Maybe once a year." Were you aware of any of these? Source: Men's Health Do you follow us on Instagram?
