Frequently Asked Questions1. Which doctor should I consult for priapism?
You can consult an urologist without any delay.
2. What are the complications that can occur following priapism?
Priapism can result in disfigurement of the penis and impotence.
3. How can one avoid priapism?
The best way to avoid priapism is to be alert. If erections following penile injections last more than two or three hours, an over-the-counter decongestant can be used successfully in many cases. Most non-urologists have little experience in treating priapism. Careful history, good examination and a specialized treatment plan are essential in the successful management of priapism.
4. What is the prognosis of priapism?
The prognosis of priapism is very good in the face of prompt treatment. The longer priapism goes without treatment, the worse the prognosis
