What is a Curved Penis?
Caring Since 2005 – Men’s Health Clinic Singapore
It is common for many men to have a mild degree of curving in the penis. The curvature could be towards the left or right, and upwards or downwards. Most of the time, the bend is mild and hardly noticeable, but in some men the bend could be up to 90 degrees.
Such severe curvature of the penis could lead to painful erections and affect one’s sexual function significantly. Seeking medical help to get a diagnosis and receive treatment could potentially improve the condition, but many men refrain from seeing a doctor, either due to embarrassment or lack of awareness.
“Why is my penis curved?” The causes for penile curvature are congenital or acquired. Acquired curvature is mainly due to Peyronie’s disease, but can also be due to the healing process of a penile fracture.
