Urology/broken blood vessel in male genitals


I seriously am thinking that I do have a broken blood vessel in penis/ prostate... If this is the case what should I expect to happen in the diagnos and resolution of issue. What is this issue reffered to? I strongly feel that this is what is going on because I got air pushed through uretha and this problem started occuring there after. Any addition information on this topic? I do have a appointment to see PCP tomorrow I think I will be reffered to see urologist. Thank you for your time, I truly appreciate your time.



A broken blood vessel in the male genitals is a bit too general to make anything of.  Exactly what was done?  What exactly makes you think there is a broken blood vessel and precisely which organ do you think has a problem?  

How did air get pushed into the urethra?  These questions all have some relevance to your situation and the answers will help in answering your question.
