  • Am I responsible for my son's hypospadias?






No, you are not. Even now, we do not know the exact cause of this condition: there are many factors involved. Current research is focusing on the molecular and genetic factors, on the role of hormones and even on the impact of environmental pollutants on the sexual development of the foetus. Whatever the cause is, itís reasonable to consider hypospadias as being the result of several factors including environmental, genetic, spontaneous among many other factors beyond our control rather than thinking in terms of personal responsibility or blame
