What is peyronie’s disease

Peyronie’s disease is an inflammatory condition of the penis which causes scar tissue to form inside the shaft. The scar tissue causes an abnormal curvature of the penile shaft.

Penises vary in shape and size, and having a curved erection isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. But Peyronie’s disease causes a significant bend or pain in some men. Peyronie’s disease can make sexual intercourse painful, difficult, or impossible. In extreme cases, scar tissue may cause shrinkage or shortening of the penis.

The main symptom of Peyronie’s disease is the formation of flat scar tissue underneath the skin of the penis. The scars, called plaques, can feel like lumps to the touch. The scarring limits blood flow and in some cases, the penis cannot stay erect beyond the location of the plaques.

Peyronie’s disease is most prevalent in men between 40 and 70 years of age. Though it can affect younger men, the occurrence is rarer.

Symptoms

The main symptom of Peyronie’s disease is the formation of flat scar tissue underneath the skin of the penis. The scars, called plaques, can feel like lumps to the touch.

Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease can include:

  • Lesions (plaques) under the skin of the penis shaft
  • Curvature of the penis when erect
  • Pain during erection
  • Inability to successfully penetrate during sexual intercourse
  • Indentation of the penis shaft (called “waisting”) giving it an hour glass shape
  • Shortening of the penis

A curved penis can be normal, but if you observe an increase in the amount of curvature, or if a crooked penis interfered with sexual activity or causes pain, it is advisable to consult with a urologist.

In most cases the condition is treated and sexual function is restored.

Penile curvature is a physical condition that can have many emotional and relationship impacts on a man.

Men tend to feel embarrassed about discussing sexual health concerns. Our doctors are aware that talking about sex and intimacy can be difficult. We are dedicated to help our clients feel comfortable and cared for.

Causes of peyronie’s disease

The cause of Peyronie’s disease isn’t completely understood, but a number of factors appear to be involved.

It’s thought Peyronie’s disease generally results from repeated injury to the penis. For example, the penis might be damaged during sex, athletic activity or as the result of an accident. However, most often, no specific trauma to the penis is recalled.

During the healing process, scar tissue forms in a disorganized manner, which might then lead to a nodule that you can feel or development of curvature. In Peyronie’s disease, when the penis becomes erect, the region with the scar tissue doesn’t stretch, and the penis bends or becomes disfigured and possibly painful.

In some men, Peyronie’s disease comes on gradually and doesn’t seem to be related to an injury. Researchers are investigating whether Peyronie’s disease might be linked to an inherited trait or certain health conditions.

Research has suggested these agents as possible causes of plaque or scar formation in the penile shaft:

  • Vitamin E deficiency
  • Beta-blocking drugs
  • Elevation in serotonin levels
  • Genetic causes
  • Trauma to the penis
