What Is Your Tunica Albuginea?
And What Does It Do?
What exactly is the Tunica Albuginea and what does it do?
Just the name makes your head spin! But that's what medical terminology is all about! You're not supposed to understand medical words.
On this website I try to make it easy to understand everything so that you can make sane decisions.
This is the bent penis website. And it is my intention to educate you in what is really happening with a bent or a broken penis so that you will know how to handle it correctly and without worry or complication.
What Is It?
Your Tunica Albuginea is simply the balloon-like covering of the chambers inside your shaft that fill with blood and give you an erection.
The term comes from the Latin "tunica" (covering or coat) + "albuginea" (white) = a covering that is white.
It is this tough thin tissue that makes it possible for your cock to get hard and straight.
It is the external envelope surrounding the corpus cavernosum. It is formed partly of muscular fibers. You also have a Tunica Albuginea over each of your testicles and also one over your urethra.
In the simplest normal persons way of speaking, it is a very tough tissue that encloses another body part to give it strength.
This tissue is a very thin but tough piece of tissue. And it fits over a weaker more fragile body part, gland, or organ very much like the skin on a sausage. It holds everything together.
The Bent Penis
If you have Peyronies Disease, you have a scar that is causing your erections to bend.
Often that scar is on the Tunica Albuginea. The scar is usually cause by a trauma (injury) to your dick. Almost always when it is erect. Often, because of your current physical condition, you don't even realize the trauma when it occurs. So, the Peyronies Disease is labeled as a mystery.
There is no mystery.
When the body does not have the correct building materials (nutrients), even the smallest injury can cause heavy scarring. This is usually the case in Peyronies "Disease".
Peyronies Disease is not actually a disease, but rather a condition.
"The normal 3-dimensional structure of the tunica affords great flexibility, rigidity and tissue strength to the penis, which are lost consequent to structural changes in Peyronie's disease."
The reason most men suffer from structural changes in Peyronies Disease is a lifetime of nutritional deficiency. Especially a deficiency in the necessary fats that will enable tissue to grow and heal properly.
The human body is a magnificently self healing mechanism. It will heal perfectly when it has a normal internal environment. When it does not, all kinds of mutation occur including cancer, arthritis, and conditions like Peyronies Disease.
If you have a broken penis, the injury is almost always first in the Tunica Albuginea. It can also be in the corpus cavernosum, corpus spongium, and the Urethra.
But the Tunica Albuginea surrounding the corpus cavernosum is the first place to break.
The reason is: This tissue is stretched to it's maximum during erection. If you forceably bend your erection, it has no more flexibility or stretchability. So it will tear (or "break") it.
This hurts like hell! The intense pain is your first clue to what just happened.
But at least now you will know what you have done and can
learn what is necessary to fix your broken penis.
