Curved Penis Determines Peyronie’s Disease

Curved Penis
There are many acceptable penile forms—most of which are considered normal—which include curvature of penile shaft inherent to the person’s genetic makeup. However, a certain condition known as Peyronie’s disease, of which the main attribute is the formation of scar tissues known as plaque in the tissues surrounding the corpora cavernosa, causes the penile shaft to bend in an unusual way, interfering with achieving and maintaining erection and making sexual activity difficult.

During erection, these tissues are said to shorten, which is the cause of the curvature of penile shaft. These fibrous plaques, which form in the thick sheath of tissues that surround the corpora cavernosa, grow thereby increasing the degree of the severity of the disease. 

Curvature of penile shaft, which is a good determinant of the presence of Peyronie’s disease, causes pain during inflammation and discomfort during penile penetration. Because of its unusual shape, during coitus, a sexual partner could complain about discomfort. 

This condition is said to affect 5% of the male population. Although it is predominant among men between 40 to 60 years old, there are reported cases of Peyronie’s disease in males as young as 18 years old and as old as 80.
