What is Peyronie’s disease?

The disease is named after the French physician, François Gigot de la Peyronie, who had the initial description of the disease.  He was a physician and surgeon to King Louis XV.

Peyronie’s disease is a superficial fibrous disorder resulting from fibrous scar tissue that develops on the penis, causing it to have a significant curve and have painful erections. 

It has a negative effect on a patient’s sexual function. This can prevent a patient from having sex or having difficulty attaining an erection or keeping an erection.

It does not go away on its own and the condition may worsen. 

       

      What are the causes of Peyronie’s disease?

      While the etiology of Peyronie’s disease is unclear, it is thought to result from an inciting traumatic event followed by aberrant fibrosis or dysregulated wound healing. 

       

      What are the symptoms if you have Peyronie’s disease?

      The main symptom of Peyronie’s disease is the significant bend of the penis. Here are the following signs and symptoms of a Peyronie’s disease:

      Shorter penis
      Curved or bent penis
      Loss of girth
      Lumps in the penis
      Painful erection
      Soft erection

      What can be done?

      Talk to a healthcare professional about what options suits you best. The disease has no cure but there is always a way to improve the condition and prevent it from worsening. Traction therapy, medications, and surgeries are some of the options.

      If the curvature is very little and no pain, you may not need to be treated at all.

      See a medical professional as soon as possible after you notice signs or symptoms of Peyronie’s disease. Early treatment gives you the best chance to improve your condition.
