Hypospadias is the term given to an inborn disorder of the urethra where the urinary opening lies on the underside of the penis instead of being at the tip.

Signs and symptoms of a hypospadias are as follows
- Hooded appearance of the penile organ
- Unusual spraying during urination
- The opening of the urethra at the bottom of the penis
- Downward curve of the penis (chordee)
