Tunica albuginea - Anatomical question
« on: May 20, 2013, 09:42:45 AM »

I would like to ask if someone could explain to me until where the Tunica albuginea extends inside the body. The images I have seen only cover the exterior part of the penis and I would like to know where the Tunica stops at the other end, so to speak. An accurate graphic would be most welcome, as I believe it is important to visualize what is going on.

My Peyronie's Disease started at the extremity as 2 small dots under the glans and has been advancing - along with the pain - in 2 straight lines toward the body. I have been experiencing pain in the pelvic area as well.

I am currently being treated by an acupuncturist because these 2 lines seem to match those of a meridian. I can also feel pain around the belly button along those 2 lines that I know is connected to peyronie's.

These fibers extend from the glans penis to the proximal crura, where they insert into the inferior pubic ramus.
