The Basics

Low-quality medical advice on TikTok and other platforms has spawned a new term: bro-science.

Be careful: Influencers across platforms are spreading bad medical advice to millions of people.

As it turns out, the testes are very connected to your overall well-being.

The shape could be due to evolution or maybe chance, but at least those hard spines are gone.

Improving Penis and Testicle Health

Beating oxidative stress can boost erections and enhance sperm health and fertility.

Gains are within reach, but remember a couple of important caveats—and what's considered normal.

These suggestions may seem obvious, but you need to heed them—get in shape and see your doctor.

A loss of sensation in your penis might originate elsewhere, but the causes can be treated.

Complications and Procedures

Find out what can cause this buildup of scar tissue and how doctors can repair the urethra.

Erectile dysfunction may be triggered by bodily systems seemingly unconnected to sex.

It may feel unpleasant, but this condition is usually no reason to panic and is often treatable.

Age, weight and overall lifestyle can conspire to steal length—at least, by all appearances.
