Taking pains to ensure good male organ health requires some commitment on a manâ€™s part, and that includes knowing about some of the common issues that can interfere with good manhood care. But no man â€“ unless perhaps he is a doctor â€“ can be familiar with all of the possible detriments to oneâ€™s male organ health. For example, a sore male organ can be caused by over-exertion of the organ, a blow to the member, or numerous other things. But how many men would know that a sore male organ might also be caused by something called a parameatal urethral cyst of the male organ head?
Thatâ€™s rather a lot to get oneâ€™s mouth around, so for simplicityâ€™s sake, this piece will just refer to the condition as a â€œcyst.â€ But readers should remember that there are many other kinds of cysts, including others which could be located on or around the member and so what we are describing here is specifically the parameatal urethral cyst of the male organ head.
What it is
As mentioned, this particular type of cyst is considered very rare. There are about 5 dozen cases which have been described in the medical literature, meaning that few people have experienced this problem. The â€œparameatalâ€ part of the name indicates that the cyst is located on or near the meatus, the slit in the manhood through which urine and semen leave the body.
A cyst is a closed sack, looking rather like a bubble, which can appear in the body. In this case, it appears on or very nearby the meatus, on the surface of the member. It can vary in size, although in most cases it is relatively small.
Some cysts can be associated with cancer, but this kind of cyst is considered benign (or non-cancerous). But that doesnâ€™t mean it is totally harmless or doesnâ€™t cause any inconvenience. As indicated earlier, sometimes the cyst can cause a sore male organ â€“ not in the whole organ, but in the area surrounding the cyst. This is especially the case if one engages in sensual activity â€“ including self-pleasuring â€“ in which friction rubs against the cyst.
Aside from producing a sore male organ, the cysts can present an obstacle while urinating. The cyst often blocks some portion of the meatus, thereby preventing urine from flowing freely. This may not only slow down the rate of urination but it may contribute to a â€œsprayingâ€ effect in which the urine flows out in several directions rather than in one solid stream.
Cause and treatment
Because it is so rare, doctors are not sure of the cause of the cyst. The most prevalent theory is that ducts in the urethra get blocked, causing the swelling of the cyst. It has been observed in both adult men and in children.
Although it is possible to â€œlanceâ€ the cyst, that serves primarily to reduce the bubble effect without removing the excess skin of the cyst. Surgical removal of the entire cyst is most often recommended, a fairly simple procedure which can be performed on an outpatient basis. Aftercare involves letting the organ rest and treating to avoid possible infection.
This kind of cyst and the sore male organ accompanying it are fortunately not things that the majority of men need worry about. But they should nevertheless take steps to ensure good male organ health by daily using a first rate male organ health crÃ¨me (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Common sore male organ pain from overuse can be soothed by using a crÃ¨me that moisturizes the skin; look for a crÃ¨me with a combination of hydrating agents, such as natural shea butter and vitamin E. The best crÃ¨me will also contain vitamin B5. Also known as pantothenic acid, B5 is a vital nutrient that helps ensure adequate cell metabolism.
