New NHS figures have revealed that 164 men had to be treated by doctors after snapping their penises in 2019

    It’s an injury that many men dread, but new statistics have revealed that a ‘record number’ of men suffered snapped penises last year.

    NHS figures obtained by The Sun have revealed that 164 men had to be treated by doctors after snapping their penises in 2019.

    This is a huge increase of 38% compared to the figures for 2014/5, according to The Sun.

    While humans don’t have a penis bone, the penis can break if ‘violently twisted.’

    The NHS explained: “There are no bones in the penis, but the tubes that fill with blood during an erection can burst. Blood pours out of them inside the penis and causes a very painful swelling.”

    While 164 men were treated for snapped penises last year, the NHS suggests that numbers of men experiencing a broken penis is actually much higher.

    It added: “Reported cases of penile fracture are rare, but it's thought that some men are too embarrassed to report it to their doctor.”

    About a third of all cases are caused by damage during sex, particularly where the partner is on top, according to the NHS.

    It said: “The breakage usually occurs when a man's penis slips out of his partner and is violently bent.”

    According to one expert, a broken penis resembles a ‘bruised aubergine.’

    Speaking to The Sun, Dr Gordon Muir, a Consultant Urologist at King’s College Hospital, said: “Normally patients come in with something looking like a bruised aubergine. Early surgical repair restores function in the long-term.

    "But if you leave it to heal without treatment, there is a high chance of getting scarring which can lead to Peyronie’s disease [a wonky willy] or internal leakage.”

    If you believe you may have a broken penis, the NHS advises seeing your doctor as soon as possible.
