A may be graphic in nature but they are for educational purposes. Videos help people have a better understanding on what happens in penile examinations. Before viewing anything, make sure that you have the stomach to take what you are about to see because these videos show real procedures and operations. Avoid showing these videos to very young children. Young people under 18 years old should not watch these videos as they are not mature enough to understand. These videos can be traumatic to children and sensitive people who are easily grossed out.
For those who are about to undergo penile exams, researching and watching a video may be helpful so they won’t be caught off guard on what is going to take place. There are actually a lot of educational videos you can view on the Internet. You will see videos of a general taken under the context of a whole physical exam.
A general penis exam video shows how the physician basically examines the male sex organ for abnormalities. The different parts of the penis are thoroughly checked to ensure that everything is in good condition. The video will show how the penis is checked for lacerations, abrasions, STD lesions, edema, bite marks, or dried secretions, hematoma. The size of the testicle and phallus development will also be noted. The doctor also checks the scrotum and urethral meatus for scars, discharge, ecchymoses, bleeding, erythema, bite marks, abrasions, or STD lesions.
The penis exam video will show that the penis of the patient is examined in standing position. If he is uncircumcised, the doctor will ask him to pull back the foreskin. The foreskin will then be returned to its normal position to avoid severe venous and arterial obstructions, which can cause necrosis of the head of the penis, or paraphymosis. The doctor will then inspect the penis, where he will hold its shaft both along the dorsal and ventral areas. The glans will gently be compressed between the doctor’s two fingers to observe the urethral meatus. He will then pass his finger below to feel the urethra and examine three things: the direction that the penis is pointing to, the characteristic of the glans and the mucous membrane, and the location and form of the urethral meatus.
Aside from a general penile exam, you may see a penis exam video that shows people with serious penile problems like erectile dysfunction, hypospadias, peyronie’s disease, and penile papules, among others. Some will show the exams for STDs such as HIV, gonorrhea, herpes and chlamydia.
