Syphilis in Men: What You Need to Know

What is Syphilis?

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by Treponema pallidum. It can be transmitted between heterosexual as well as homosexual partners.

Syphilis is one of the most potentially dangerous sexually transmitted diseases, similar in severity to HIV in many ways, because if it is not treated it may cause symptoms and infection in virtually any part of the body (secondary and tertiary syphilis).

Symptoms of Syphilis in Men

The most common symptom of syphilis in men is a painless ulcer on the penis, called ‘chancre”. It often heals on its own after a few weeks. Unless appropriately treated, the man will still have an infection after the ulcer heals.

Testing for Syphilis in Men.

A blood test called “RPR” is used to detect syphilis infection in men.  We offer same-day testing for syphilis and comprehensive same-day STD testing for other STI such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, HIV and hepatitis C.

Treatment of Syphilis Infection in Men.

Early detection and treatment of syphilis with antibiotics can prevent complications of secondary and tertiary syphilis which can include neuro-psychiatric complications, heart problems and many other symptoms.

We offer effective treatment with CDC-recommended antibiotic, Penicillin-G for treatment of syphilis infection in our offices.
