Penis & Testis

The penis is an external male reproductive organ. It contains a tube called the urethra, which carries semen and urine to the outside of the body. The penis also contains tissues which allow it to become firm (erect) for the purpose of sexual activity.

The testes are two egg-shaped glands located in the scrotum (the sac behind the penis). The testes produce sperm and male hormones.

Problems that involve the penis or testes include erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, testicular cancer, and infertility. To learn more, click on one of the following:
