Peyronie’s disease is hardening of the penile corpora cavernosa of a progressive nature. Within the penile tunica albuginea surrounding each corpus cavernosum, connective tissue plaques develop. As they accumulate in the penile tissues, a progressive bending of the penis occurs. This is noticeable during an erection. In addition, pain may occur, and in some cases intercourse is impossible.
Penile curvature in the course of Peyronie’s disease can be very severe. A lot of men wonder “why is my penis bent?”. A lot of men experience a slight upward, downward or sideways curvature of the penis. However, this does not negatively affect the ability to achieve an erection and the ability to have sexual intercourse. Such anatomical curvature of the penis is not accompanied by pain. However, in the course of Peyronie’s disease, scar tissue is so problematic that the penis curvature takes a significant degree.
Peyronie’s disease may affect a few percent of men and affects not only their physical, but also their mental well-being. The inability to have sexual intercourse is very frustrating and can affect the relationship between partners. Therefore, it is important to apply effective treatment, which allows for reducing annoying symptoms of the disease. Ultimately, it is possible to get rid of penile curvature and pain, and return to your former successful sex life.
