  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Hypospadias is a congenital abnormality of urethral opening in male babies. is a combination of three separate problems:
    1. the hole through which urine passes (meatus) is not at the tip of the penis
    2. the foreskin is gathered at the back of the penis with none at the front
    3. the penis may be bent when stiff.

    It requires surgical repair.Usually, the surgeon is able to make these corrections in one operation, but if the hypospadias is severe, he may decide to correct it in two stages, in separate operations. Although hypospadias does not cause any immediate problems and is not life threatening, it means that peeing standing up may not be possible, and later on, having an adequate erection and having sex may be difficult.Please consult a pediatric surgeon for more information and appropriate age for the correction.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
