The bulb of the penis (urethral bulb) is the posterior expanded portion of the corpus spongiosum situated in the superfrcial interspace of the perineum proper and surrounded by the bulbo-cavernosus muscle. It is about four centimeters (one and three-quarter inches) long and one and one-half centimeters (five-eighths of an inch) wide. It conveys the bulbous part of the spongy portion of the urethra, which enters it at its deep surface and runs nearer to that surface.
