Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

Inverted penis



Can inverted penis be painful in a newborn? He is scheduled for surgery at nine months, but he cries all the time. They have run several tests and find nothing.


The condition only would be painful if he has difficulty urinating or has a distended bladder because he has difficulty urinating. That concern can be answered by obtaining a renal and bladder ultrasound, which would be certain that the bladder is not distended, and that the kidneys look normal.
