The exact cause of hypospadias is not known exactly, but there is some link to genetics. For this reason, some studies show that hypospadias is hereditary.
Specifically, the genetic cause of hypospadias would be a mutation in a gene, leading to a lower concentration of androgen receptors. However, it is not possible to state that this congenital malformation in the location of the urethral opening is genetic.
