Special Needs Guide

Concealed Penis also referred to as inconspicuous penis or buried penis: Concealed penis is a condition where the boy has a normal-sized penis that lays hidden in the pubic fat pad. This condition is also sometimes called buried penis or hidden penis. Inconspicuous penis is a condition where the penis appears small but the shaft can be normal or abnormal in size.

Possible complications: Boys with this condition frequently get urinary tract infections or have urinary retention.

Treatment:  If the penis can be easily exposed by gently pulling on it or by pressing down on the surrounding fat pad, then the situation will usually correct itself over time. Sometimes surgery is needed for concealed penis.  The age this should be done varies greatly by the specific condition. If surgery is required, the results are usually excellent.
