It is common for you to have a slight amount of penile curvature to the left or right when it is erect. But if you have a more significant bend in your penis, which may cause you pain or difficulty having sex, see your GP or contact a private medical Urology clinic, like Moorgate Andrology. These symptoms can more often than not be symptoms of Peyronie’s disease.
What are the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease?
The symptoms of Peyronie’s disease include:
- A thickened area or hard lump in the shaft of the penis
- Penile curvature when the penis is erect
- Pain in the penis, usually during an erection
- The penis looking misshapen, like an hourglass
- Loss of length or girth of the penis
Some men with the condition get pain in their penis, while others get none. If you do get pain, it may get better over time. But in severe cases, the penile curvature can make having sex difficult, painful or even impossible. Peyronie’s disease may also lead to erectile dysfunction.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
The cause of Peyronie’s disease is not yet understood. It is thought the condition sometimes occurs after an injury to the penis when erect, such as being bent during sex, but it can develop without any obvious cause. Peyronie’s disease may run in families.
