External Genitalia

  • Philip Thorek


The penis has a posterior fixed part or root and an anterior mobile portion called the body. It is composed of 3 fibroelastic cylinders which are filled with spongy or erectile tissue. These cylinderlike masses are the right and the left corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum (urethrae) (Fig. 558).
