The perineal raphe is a visible line or ridge of tissue on the human body that extends from the anus through the perineum. It is found in both males and females, and arises from the fusion of the urogenital folds. In males, this structure continues through the midline of the scrotum scrotal raphe and upwards through the posterior midline aspect of the penis penile raphe. It also exists deeper through the scrotum where it is called the scrotal septum.
Lumps are always something that is worrying to find. When you suddenly develop a lump on your head or hand, you become worried about what it could be. You talk to your friends or go to a doctor to get checked out. When you have a lump between anus and scrotum, you might not feel comfortable talking to your friends. You are embarrassed to go to the doctor, but you need to know if the lump is caused by something dangerous or life-threatening.
The perineum is the space between the anus and scrotum in the male and between the anus and the vulva in the female. There is some variability in how the boundaries are defined. The perineum is an erogenous zone for both males and females.
Perineal urethrostomy is a surgical procedure that is performed on males to create a permanent opening into the urethra through an incision in the skin of the perineum. The perineum is the area of skin between the scrotum and the anus. The urethra is the tube like structure through which urine passes from the bladder through the penis to exit the body.
