What Is Penile Frenulum Injury and What are The Possible Causes?

 

Penile frenulum injury is simply the tearing of the penis frenulum; a tissue that connects from under the penis head down to the shaft.

The penis frenulum is so delicate that typical day to day activities can lead to its tearing. These activities include;

  • Wearing tight pants or innerwear
  • Cycling
  • Vigorous sex or masturbation
  • Physical hard labor
  • Sports

Unless there is an infection, penile frenulum injury isn't a long term condition. It can be treated even at home.

Note that even if the tear could seem to be a minor injury, it can cause discomfort and pain. Thepenis is composed of nerves and receptors which are very sensitive to pain. Therefore, it's reasonable to experience sharp, pain at the tip of the penis.
