Hypospadias

Hypospadias is a fairly common congenital condition that develops in baby boys. As the penis is developing in utero, the urethra usually forms an opening near the head of the penis. In hypospadias, this opening forms somewhere along the underside of the penis. This condition is not typically indicative of any other problem or birth defect, and can be corrected through surgery.
