Cavernosography Radiography of a cavity
Chordee condition resulting in penis being bent downward
Corpora Cavernosa two cavities of penis
Epididymis tube located at the top of testes that stores sperm

Paraphimosis prepuce (foreskin) becomes constricted, is retracted over glans penis and cannot be moved forward
Peyronie's Disease bent nail syndrome - lateral curvature of penis during erection
Bowen's Disease is the common name for: intraepithelial neoplasia (tumor under the prepuce)
