Peyronie's Disease

What is Peyronie's Disease?

Peyronie's disease is a buildup of scar tissue, also known as plaque, in the penis. It causes curved, painful erections. If you've had a curved erection for a long time, there's a good chance that's simply the natural shape of your penis. 

A curved erection isn't necessarily a sign of Peyronie's disease. However, if you've noticed any troubling changes to the appearance of your penis, or are experiencing pain, with or without an erection, schedule an appointment at Happy Valley Clinic right away.

In addition to bent or curved erections, Peyronie's disease may cause your penis to shorten or narrow. You may also notice hard lumps on at least one side of your penis. 

Peyronie's disease is a common cause of erectile dysfunction. You may be unable to achieve or maintain an erection. Additionally, if the curve is severe enough, you may find it difficult or impossible to have sex.

The symptoms of Peyronie's disease can be mild, moderate, or severe. Depending on your situation, you may develop it suddenly or gradually. Often, the pain decreases over time, but the condition may still cause a permanent curve even after other symptoms improve.

What causes Peyronie's Disease?

The exact cause of Peyronie's disease is unknown. In some cases, men develop it following an injury to the penis, which results in the development of scar tissue.

Often, people with Peyronie's disease can't trace it to a specific incident. as you may develop it gradually. Peyronie's disease can also be the result of repeated forceful activity over time, which causes many tiny injuries and eventually causes scar tissue to develop.

Peyronie's disease may be hereditary. It's more common among people with a family history. Certain conditions, including autoimmune and connective tissue disorders, are also connected to Peyronie's disease.
