Peyronie’s Disease and Penile Curvature Treatment
It is estimated that 1% – 3% of men suffer from penile curvature (according to Mayo Clinic’s scientific studies). In the United States, there are 1.4 million men who suffer from Peyronie’s disease.
A curved penis or bent penis can be very problematic and can impede a man from having a healthy sexual life. The most common cause for a curved penis is Peyronie’s disease.
Peyronie’s is a degenerative disease, if left untreated it will continue to get worse. The most common result of this disease is an increasingly curved penis, sometimes to the extent that it makes sexual intercourse painful or impossible.
Conventionally, the only treatment for Peyronie’s disease was invasive surgery. The problem with Peyronie’s disease correction surgery is that it is invasive, expensive and normally causes penile shortening. In a recent penis enhancement study, in most cases this type of surgery resulted in the penis losing up to up to 1.2 inches (3 cm) in length (PubMed). Because this is not a price patients are prepared to pay, and because of the overall increased dissatisfaction with Peyronie’s disease correction surgery, more and more doctors and patients are turning to non-surgical alternatives such as Andropenis.
In the fields of Andrology and Urology, the studies conducted on Andropenis show that it produces a large reduction in penile curvature, while simultaneously lengthening the penis, all without any surgery. Treatment using Andropenis results in Peyronie’s disease correction of up to 50% (PubMed).
Nothing should stand in the way of your sexual happiness, especially something as correctable as penis curvature. You might think that your penile curvature is no big deal, but it can cause many problems which are detrimental to your sexual health.
Penile Curvatures: Congenital and Accidental Causes
There are types of penile curvatures that are not caused by Peyronie’s disease, such as congenital curvature, and curvatures caused by trauma to the penis. Congenital Curvature comes from birth. Many men are born with a curved penis, sometimes the flaw is just aesthetic, but for some it can severely impede a normal sex life, making sex difficult, painful, or even impossible. Andropeyronie provides a congenital penis curvature treatment that is both effective and non-intrusive.
Many men, who are not born with a curved penis, can develop one later on in life as a result of trauma inflicted on the penis. Ever have rough intercourse to the point that it hurt? Or have you ever hurt your penis during intercourse, bending it? Although the penis obviously has no bones inside it, this kind of trauma can still cause permanent damage. Sex-related accidents, even those you would not think twice about after they happen, can cause ruptures inside the penis which stunt growth. When the penis is hurt in this way, it often causes one side of the penis to stop growing. While the healthy side outgrows the damaged side, the penis will effectively become curved.

What Is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease is penis problem caused by scar tissue, called plaque, that forms inside the penis. It can result in a bent, rather than straight, erect penis.
Most men with Peyronie’s disease can still have sex. But for some, it can be painful and cause erectile dysfunction. Depending on the symptoms, you may opt for observation, medical or surgical treatments.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
Doctors don’t know exactly why Peyronie’s disease happens. Many researchers believe the fibrous plaque can start after trauma (hitting or bending) that causes bleeding inside the penis. You might not notice the injury or trauma.
Other cases, which develop over time, may be linked to genes. In some men, injury and genes could both be involved.
Who Gets Peyronie’s Disease?
Although it mostly happens in middle-aged men, younger and older men can get it.
It becomes more common as a man gets older. But it’s not a normal part of aging.
What Are the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease?
Symptoms may develop slowly or appear overnight. When the penis is soft, you can’t see a problem. But in severe cases, the hardened plaque hampers flexibility, causing pain and forcing the penis to bend or arc when erect.
In most cases, the pain eases over time, but the bend in the penis can worsen.
Some men with the condition develop scar tissue elsewhere in the body, such as on the hand or foot. Men with Dupuytren’s contractures — scarring in the hand that affects fingers — seem to be more likely to get Peyronie’s.
How Do Doctors Diagnose Peyronie’s Disease?
Tell your doctor about anything, such as an injury, that happened before the symptoms started.
You’ll get an exam in which your doctor will feel the hardened tissue caused by the disease during an exam. It’s not always necessary, but if the penis has to be erect for the exam, the doctor would inject a medicine to make that happen.
There’s a chance you may need to get an X-ray or ultrasound of the penis.
It’s rare, but in some cases where the doctor’s exam does not confirm Peyronie’s disease, or if the condition develops rapidly, your doctor may do a biopsy. That involves removing a little bit of tissue from the affected area for lab tests.
Peyronie’s disease signs and symptoms might appear suddenly or develop gradually. The most common signs and symptoms include:
Scar tissue. The scar tissue (plaques) associated with Peyronie’s disease can be felt under the skin of the penis as flat lumps or a band of hard tissue.
A significant bend to the penis. Your penis might be curved upward, downward or bent to one side. In some cases, the erect penis might have narrowing, indentations or an hourglass appearance, with a tight, narrow band around the shaft.
Erection problems. Peyronie’s disease might cause problems getting or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction).
Shortening of the penis. Your penis might become shorter as a result of Peyronie’s disease.
Pain. You might have penile pain, with or without an erection.
The curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease might gradually worsen. At some point, however, it typically stabilizes.
Pain during erections usually improves within one to two years, but the scar tissue and curvature often remain. In some cases, both the curvature and pain associated with Peyronie’s disease improve without treatment.
The cause of Peyronie’s disease isn’t completely understood, but a number of factors appear to be involved.
It’s thought Peyronie’s disease generally results from repeated injury to the penis. For example, the penis might be damaged during sex, athletic activity or as the result of an accident. However, most often, no specific trauma to the penis is recalled.
During the healing process, scar tissue forms in a disorganized manner, which might then lead to a nodule that you can feel or development of curvature.
Each side of the penis contains a sponge-like tube (corpus cavernosum) that contains many tiny blood vessels. Each of the corpora cavernosa is encased in a sheath of elastic tissue called the tunica albuginea, which stretches during an erection.
When you become sexually aroused, blood flow to these chambers increases. As the chambers fill with blood, the penis expands, straightens and stiffens into an erection.
In Peyronie’s disease, when the penis becomes erect, the region with the scar tissue doesn’t stretch, and the penis bends or becomes disfigured and possibly painful.
In some men, Peyronie’s disease comes on gradually and doesn’t seem to be related to an injury. Researchers are investigating whether Peyronie’s disease might be linked to an inherited trait or certain health conditions.
Minor injury to the penis doesn’t always lead to Peyronie’s disease. However, various factors can contribute to poor wound healing and scar tissue buildup that might play a role in Peyronie’s disease. These include:
Heredity. If your father or brother has Peyronie’s disease, you have an increased risk of the condition.
Connective tissue disorders. Men who have a connective tissue disorder appear to have an increased risk of developing Peyronie’s disease. For example, a number of men who have Peyronie’s disease also have a cord-like thickening across the palm that causes the fingers to pull inward (Dupuytren’s contracture).
Age. The prevalence of Peyronie’s disease increases with age, especially in men over 55.
Other factors — including certain health conditions, smoking and some types of prostate surgery — might be linked to Peyronie’s disease.
Complications of Peyronie’s disease might include:
Inability to have sexual intercourse
Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
Anxiety or stress about sexual abilities or the appearance of your penis
Stress on your relationship with your sexual partner
Difficulty fathering a child, because intercourse is difficult or impossible
Peyronie’s disease is where plaques (segments of flat scar tissue) form under the skin of the penis. These plaques can cause the penis to bend or become indented during erections. The plaques can often be felt through the skin, and can also be painful.
How Does the Penis Normally Work?
Male Reproductive System
The main roles of the penis are to carry urine out of the body and sperm into the woman’s vagina. There are 3 tubes inside the penis. One is called the urethra. It’s hollow and carries urine from the bladder through the penis to the outside. The other 2 tubes are called the corpora cavernosa. These are soft, spongy tubes that fill with blood to make the penis stiff during an erection. The 3 tubes are wrapped together by a very tough fibrous sheath called the tunica albuginea. During sex, the stiffness of the penis makes it hard enough to push into the woman’s vagina. Then the urethra acts as a channel to carry semen into the vagina.
NON SURGICAL TREATMENT PEYRONIE´S DISEASE
The goal of treatment is to maintain or regain sexual function by straightening the penis. Treatments can include:
Treatment should be tailored to the patient’s needs and should take into account the degree of penile curvature, severity of penile shortening, the presence of penile narrowing, and whether there is any erectile dysfunction.
