Penile chordee is curvature of the penis that can affect a boy’s ability to point his urine stream or in some cases can cause difficulty with sexual function later in life.
Approximately 1 in 200 boys will be born with penile chordee or buried/concealed penis. Concealed or buried penis can occur because of a prominent fat pad overlying the penis, but in some cases, it can occur due to poor fixation of the skin to the shaft of the penis, causing the penis to not fully protrude.
In most cases, chordee and buried penis are identified at birth or prior to circumcision.
A pediatric urologist can discuss care for your son's penis as well as options for circumcision for those considering it.
If your child has been diagnosed, you probably have lots of questions. We can help. If you would like to schedule an appointment, refer a patient or speak to our staff, please call our offices.
