Urology/Corpus spongiosum/urethra/penile problem

I am 45 years old.  I had a place like this come up on me.  I talked to my urologist.  I would recommend you get a physical with your doctor.  I had a bulge come up on me that curved my penis a little that is larger on the right side.  I am not saying this is what you have.  I was told it was an aneurysm of the corpus spongiosium. It is the tissue that blood engorges to make an erection. The tissue is damaged and blood supply fills tissue more and drains slower.  It is not repairable and not problematic.  You need to discuss this with your medical doctor.  He will be direct and explain it to you. Your condition could be something else.  I urge you to see your doctor and to talk to your father about this because sometimes things run in families.
