Examination of the Penis

The physical examination is presented as a checklist with possible (pathological) results. Special attention is given to important findings for urologists.

Examination of the Foreskin (Prepuce)

Examination of the Glans

Examination of the Penile Shaft

Examination of the Groin

Neurological examination:

Bulbospongiosus reflex or older term bulbocavernosus reflex: squeezing of the glans leads to a contraction of the bulbospongiosus muscle and the external anal sphincter. The polysynaptic reflex is present in healthy individuals at a low reflex level. An increased reflex level with paralysis of the lower extremity suggests a lesion of the first motor neuron (pyramidal tract).
