retracting penis problem

I've been experiencing this problem also. The injury theory may hold some water because about 3 years ago I fell from a ladder and broke my foot. This may coincide with when my penis started retracting but I didn't really start noticing until a year ago and it doesn't happen all the time. I am 53 yrs old. I haven't exercised much since then, though I used to,I'm probably about 20 lbs overweight, but I've always been on the heavier side.  Point being I don't think it's exercise or weight that causes the problem. I think it may be more attributed to stress on my body from the injury. From earlier posts I see that for some it's been, or is, happening since youth, but even some of those posts mention physical stresses put on the body so maybe there is a real correlation there. Maybe a Sports Therapist could shed some light on this problem.

Hi AM,
Have you had your prostate checked recently and a PSA test done through a blood test?

Hi, check them again, things pop up and you did mention a one year time spam for this happening. An enlarged prostate can put pressure on your sphinkter muscle and cause this. Like when you take a cold shower, the cold water causes it to pull back. Its the muscle in my opinion.

Hi, they say for each 10 pounds we put on our p***s's retract 1/2 inch, so from what you say its can have gone back an inch, so how far do you think its gone back?
