Peyronie's Disease

What is Peyronie's Disease?

Peyronie's disease is a curvature of the erect penis. The curvature is caused by scar tissue that forms inside the penis. The penis curves when erect because the scar tissue does not become engorged with blood during the erection. Sometimes, the scar tissue calcifies into hard lumps called plaques.

Peyronie's disease isn't related to any infection, tumor, contagious disease or sexual practice. It usually affects men between the ages of 40 and 60. Peyronie's disease can make sexual intercourse difficult or impossible.

Peyronie's disease was named after a French physician who first described the disorder.

Symptoms of Peyronie's Disease

Some of the most common symptoms of Peyronie's disease are:

  • Painful erections
  • Shortening of the penis
  • Curving of the penis

What Causes Peyronie's Disease?

The exact cause is unknown. Some men with Peyronie's disease have had a penis injury that causes scar tissue.

Can Peyronie's Disease be Treated?

Yes. Medication and radiation therapy are the most common options.

If it does not go away or interferes with sexual activity, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery is usually one of the last options because complications can occur. Surgery is usually suggested if the curvature so severe that it prevents sexual intercourse.
