“Hey, Numb-Nuts …”
| 6 reasons your penis might go numb and what you can do about it
| The Sun – Losing sensation down below can be a sign of a serious issue which, if left unseen to, can leave you fighting for your manhood and your life.
So, here are the six main causes of penile numbness:
1. Prostate cancer
One sign of the prostate cancer is a numbness or tingling, which kicks in once a tumo has damaged the prostate gland.
Other symptoms include needing to pee more often or more urgently, weak flow, difficulty in starting to pee and feeling as though you haven’t emptied your bladder.
2. Tight clothing
If you’re a skinny jeans or extra snug brief wearer, you could be squeezing your bits a little too tightly.
If your clothes are too tight they can irritate the penis, cause itching and tingling.
The irritation can end up leaving your manhood feeling less sensitive than usual.
3. Peyronie’s disease
Some men experience a condition called Peyronie’s disease, which causes the penis to become curved when it is erect.
It is perfectly normal for a penis to have a slight curve when it is standing to attention, but men with Peyronie’s disease will have a prominent curve that causes pain.
Peyronie’s disease can also lead to difficulty having sex and erectile dysfunction.
4. Nerve problems
Any kind of nerve problem can cause tingling and numbness, downstairs is no different.
Men with diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, vascular disease and cancer may experience nerve problems.
5. Sex injury
There have been several medical reports of men “breaking” their penis during sex, including a 47-year-old man who fractured his penis during a night of passionate sex.
The patient, who was not named, felt a “snapping sensation” but claims he did not feel any symptoms until 12 hours later.
Peddling around on a hard, narrow seat can cause a load of discomfort for both men and women.
The seat can also put pressure on the blood vessels and nerves down there, so numbness may occur. Read more.
