Causes of Penile Fracture
Trauma that causes penile fracture is most often caused by sexual intercourse. However, this condition can also occur due to masturbation that is too intense.
Trauma makes the erectile tissue under the tunica albuginea rupture.
Not only that, fractures can also injure the urethra or the channel through which urine flows in the penis.

– bending the penis during penetration
– a sharp blow to an erect penis during a fall, car accident, or other accident
