Peyronie’s disease is typified by the growth of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis. It is this scar tissue, which is also called plaque that causes the curved, painful erections that are usually associated with Peyronie’s.
It is not necessarily Peyronie’s disease if you have a curved penis, after all penises come in all shapes and sizes. A slight curvature of the penis could be perfectly normal. But, if the curve cause a lot of pain, and if it makes it difficult or impossible to have sexual intercourse, there is a good change you have Peyronie’s disease.
How To Identify Peyronie’s Disease
Sometimes a curved penis is perfectly normal. Some men even find the curve makes them unique and more attractive. However, you can tell if your curved penis is typical of Peyronie’s Disease if:
- The curve in your penis comes on suddenly, and seems to worsen over time
- The curve to your penis is associated with scar tissue. Often the scar tissue of Peyronie’s can be felt as lumps below the skin of the penis
- The bend to your penis is significant, to one side, up or down
- The bend to your penis is accompanied by erectile dysfunction
- The bend to your penis is accompanied by pain
- The bend to your penis makes it difficult, or impossible to enjoy normal sexual relations
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
Doctors are really not 100% sure what causes Peyronie’s disease. Some doctors believe there are common genetic risk factors. However, the most commonly held belief for the cause of the scar tissue typical of Peyronie’s, is that it occurs from repeated injury to the penis.
For example, from damage during vigorous sexual activity, sports such as mountain biking, or as the result of an accident. However, most often, when presenting with the condition, patients usually do not recall a specific trauma occurring to their penis.
Can Men With Peyronie’s Disease Have Sex?
There are men with Peyronie’s disease who do just fine sexually. Some men with Peyronie’s have even reported that their partners find the curve “unique and interesting.”
But for others, Peyronie’s can make it difficult, or painful to have intercourse. Peyronie’s can be embarrassing, and cause stress and anxiety. It can lead to erectile dysfunction for both physical, and “emotional” reasons.
