What is Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s Disease should not be confused with congenital curvature
Peyronie’s Disease is the name given to a condition which causes the penis to bend when erect. The bend can be mild and hardly noticeable. However, there are also severe cases that the bend can be as bad as 90 degrees. I had a patient with such a severe deformity and he had to have sex facing away from his partner.
Severe Peyronie’s Disease is not just aesthetically displeasing. It can also cause pain and reduce the quality of erections. If the bend is severe, it can severely affect the patient’s sexual function. Like another patient of mine whose deformity meant his penis can only point downwards towards his toes.
