Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a condition where an erect penis is bent rather than straight (curved penis). The curvature of the penis, or the bend, can range from mild and hardly noticeable to a 90 degrees curve.

Severe Peyronie’s Disease, besides being aesthetically displeasing, can also cause pain and reduce the quality of erections.

Peyronie’s Disease should not, however, be confused with congenital curvature. In congenital curvature, a person is born with a normal curve in the penis. This is not caused by a plaque and does not need to be treated.

Common Causes of Peyronie’s Disease

  • Hardened (Fibrosis) area of the penis tissue

  • A result of a scar (plaque) forming on the lining of the penis tissue

  • As scar tissues are not as elastic as normal tissue, it causes the penis to bend or curve especially when erect.

How will Peyronie’s Disease be diagnosed?

Generally, a hard lump can be felt on the same side as the direction of the curvature of the penis. Most of the time, the bending of the penis becomes more obvious over time.

During an examination, the doctor may be able to feel the hard lump (scar) on your penis especially if it is erect; the doctor will also advise you to take a photo of the erect penis before coming to see the doctor, to determine the severity of the bending of the penis.

The doctor may order an ultrasound of the erect penis to locate the hardened lump (scar) and assess the size of the scar.

AVAILABLE TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR PEYRONIE’S DISEASE

Observation

In very mild cases, where there is no interference to sexual intercourse or erection issues, there may not be a need for any treatment. A patient may be advised to observe the bending of the penis over 12 months. Sometimes, over the course of 12 months, the curvature may become better or resolve completely.

If the bending is moderate to severe or if it causes interference to sexual intercourse, the following treatment options can be considered.

SURGICAL THERAPY

Surgical options include removing the scar tissue or plication of the penis which involves stitching up the opposite side of where the curvature is. However with plication of the penis, the side where the stitches are made, the penis will usually be shortened as a result.

With surgical removal of the scar tissue, the risk of damage to the nerves of the penis (which can cause numbness to the head of the penis) may occur or result in erectile dysfunction (ED).

ELECTRO-SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Electro-shockwave therapy can be a painless non-surgical option for the treatment of Peyronie’s Disease.

The theory behind the treatment is that the pulses generated by the machine can help to break up the scar tissue thus improving the curvature of the penis.

There are other treatment methods are available, speak to our doctors to find out more.

Anywhere from 1 to 23 % of men between the ages of 40 and 70 are estimated to be affected.

FAQs

With all modes of treatment, even if the treatment is successful, the curvature of the penis may recur.

Not all lumps are due to Peyronie’s Disease. Sometimes they can be cysts (water bags), pimples or fordyce spots (tiny glands near the surface of the skin which is normal).

No. Peyronie’s disease does not cause any issues with the quality or quantity of sperm produced.
