The word is used in a general sense in reference to any infection or suspected infection of the male genital area.
Man, I think that girl from the bar last night gave me wangrene.

A number of men in developing countries die from wangrene as a result of dirty surgical instruments used during circumcisions each year.

My wangrene has flared up again, and it won't stop itching.
