Tear below foreskin, but no rupture of urethra or corpora
I have a rather unique problem. I have a tear of a layer in my penis. It was the only thing that was torn. My foreskin remained intact and there was no tear in my urethra nor my corpora cavernosa. I underwent an ultrasound and MRI and neither showed anything out of the ordinary. Please see the following photo:
As you can see, the tear is to the left of my frenulum, below the glans (glands). It has been 4 years since the injury and it still causes me pain, though much less than before. What could be the layer that has been torn? Tunica? Fascia? And what can be done? I am uncircumcised and wish to remain uncircumcised. My frenulum is the only thing keeping the rest of that layer from tearing even further.
