Peyronie's Disease Q & A

What is Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which plaque, a tough scar tissue, causes the penis to curve upward, downward, or sideways when erect. Or the penis may take on an hourglass shape when erect. Plaque can also cause shortening of the penis or a loss of girth (width).

What causes Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease causes are currently unknown. Some (but not all) men experience an injury before developing the disease. Medical experts suspect vascular disease, genetics, and lifestyle choices like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption contribute. Several things might contribute to Peyronie’s disease in many cases.

What symptoms does Peyronie’s disease cause?

Peyronie’s disease isn’t only a problem with the penis’ appearance. It cuts down on blood flow to the penis, which can prevent you from achieving and maintaining erections (erectile dysfunction.) The scar tissue inside the penis can also make erections uncomfortable, leading to unpleasurable sexual encounters.

With severe Peyronie’s disease, pronounced penile curvature can make it impossible to have sex at all.

More than 75% of men with Peyronie’s disease report adverse psychological effects like depression and anxiety due to their condition. When left untreated, Peyronie’s disease can significantly damage your quality of life.
