5 Signs You May Be Suffering from Peyronie's Disease

Written By Denver Men's Health Group on November 26, 2018

As with all erectile problems, Peyronie’s Disease can be a difficult condition for men to see a doctor about. In addition to embarrassment, this hesitance can also be chalked up to a certain level of ignorance. 

After all, you don’t want to see a doctor if you’re not even sure you have the disease. To quell those fears, here are five signs that you might have Peyronie’s Disease. 

Peyronie’s Disease Can Have Many Symptoms

While your doctor should have the final say, it doesn’t hurt to do some homework before making the visit and beginning a Peyronie’s Disease treatment. 

1. Curved Penis 

One of the most blatant signs of Peyronie’s Disease is a curved penis, which can be pointed toward any direction. Sometimes, it can even take different shapes, such as an hourglass shape or a narrow shape. This misshapen appearance is a result of the plaque that develops inside the penis.

2. Scar Tissue 

Peyronie’s Disease creates scar tissue beneath the skin of the penis, which can build up significantly over time. This scar tissue can be felt with your hands if you feel for lumps or a group of hard tissue. 

3. Painful Erections 

Painful erections can be a symptom of many things, but Peyronie’s Disease is one of them. While the pain is traditionally mild, it can become increasingly irritating when having sex, especially if the curvature is extreme. 

4. Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction is known to occur in conjunction with Peyronie’s Disease. It’s the way that your body takes precautionary measure to prevent the pain that comes with the erection. Interestingly, Peyronie’s Disease has risen in relevance with the rise of new meds for erectile dysfunction, so their relation is closer than we might think. 

5. Shortening of the Penis

Similar to the way that the plaque inside the penis can cause it to become curved, it can also result in the penis becoming shorter. 

Where There’s Smoke, There’s Peyronie’s Disease

You can never be too careful when it comes to diseases, and Peyronie’s Disease is no exception. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to schedule an appointment with your doctor.
