Typical Fracture has symptoms of bending and is caused in connection with either bleeding and/or a loud "crack". (emergency instructions)
Atypical Penis Fracture has symptoms of pain and bending though this ocurrs often without any bleeding or loud "crack". This can at times result in year long nerve damage : either pain or numbness. This nerve damage is the subject of this site and forum.
Perhaps it should be called a penis sprain or inflammation - this would not mean the problem was smaller. Bone fractures will cure in a matter of weeks, and yet tennis elbow and muscle strains can last painfully for years. It seems a fracture is easy to diagnose and easy to cure. Fracture sounds dramatic, but a normal fracture is in fact a relatively uncomplicated problem.
