What causes Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease is caused by a formation of palpable plaques and scar tissue in the shaft of the penis.

This plaque can be caused by a range of things, such as a minor injury that may have occurred during sexual intercourse.

Can Peyronie’s Disease heal itself?

If you have a mild form of Peyronie's disease

What’s the best treatment for Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease can be cured using several methods.

Peyronie’s disease surgery using the Stage Technique straightens the penis by making small incisions under the skin. It is effective as it reduces the risk of losing penis length.

Peyronie’s disease injections are injected into the collagen plaque that causes the curvature. They disrupt this plaque thus straightening the bend.

Is Peyronie’s disease progressive?

The disease is progressive and can start off mild, but then progress into a more serious issue.

The first sign of Peyronie’s disease is the bend in the erect penis. At first, this may feel fine but over time can become painful.

Once the disease has matured fully, sex will become very painful.

Can I have Peyronie’s disease treatment done on the NHS?

Treatment for Peyronie’s is available on the NHS, this is called the Nesbit procedure.

While this procedure does fix the curve, it also reduces the length of the penis.

Having private treatment for Peyronie’s disease using the Stage Technique or Peyronie’s disease injections can help avoid shortening of your penile length.

Is Peyronie’s disease a serious health problem?

While Peyronie’s disease isn’t a life-threatening condition, it can affect a man’s life considerably.

Men with Peyronie’s find it painful or uncomfortable to have sex, and a lack of sex can actually negatively affect their confidence and mental health.

Getting Peyronie’s treated is important so that the disease doesn’t get worse.

What are Peyronie’s disease injections?

peyronies disease injections work to reduce the curvature of the penis so that you are able to continue performing sexual intercourse.

The injections work by treating the plaque that is causing the curve in the penis. The treatment should be done once every 3 months.

How long does Peyronie’s injection treatment take?

Peyronie’s disease injection treatment should take around one hour. It is done on an out-patient basis, so you can go home straight after.

This is a simpler and easier procedure, in comparison to Peyronie's disease surgery.

To make sure the injections are right for you, book a consultation to see a Urologist.

Can vitamins cure Peyronie’s disease?

Vitamins aren’t a known cure for Peyronie’s disease as they aren't proven to straighten the penis.

Vitamins can, however, increase the strength of your erections. Peyronie’s disease is a serious medical problem which either requires penile injections or surgery to correct.

Does Peyronie’s disease affect urination?

In some cases, Peyronie’s disease does affect urination.

Since the penis has a noticeable curvature, men may find it hard to urinate in a straight line.

This can be easily fixed with either Peyronie’s disease injections or surgery.

I have a bent penis, Peyronie's disease?

If the curvature in your erect penis is greater than 30 degrees, you may have Peyronie’s Disease.

In severe cases, this curvature can be up to 70 degrees. If the condition is left untreated the condition will probably worsen over time.

Can Peyronie’s disease be treated without surgery?

Peyronie’s disease can be treated without surgery. Penile injections are available to straighten the penis.

These do have to be topped up every few months so that the curve doesn’t return or become worse.

Does Peyronie’s disease affect growth?

When Peyronie’s disease worsens, it may cause growth of abnormal lumps in the penis. These are caused by the plaques that have formed in the penis.

To avoid this, it is important to get the condition treated. Treating Peyronie’s disease will also prevent the symptoms and curvature from becoming worse.

How much does Peyronie’s disease treatment cost?

The cost of Peyronie’s disease treatment depends on the type of procedure that you choose.

Peyronie’s disease surgery will cost more as it involves a hospital stay and more aftercare procedures.

What age group is likely to develop Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease is most commonly developed in men over the age of 50. It has been known for some teenage men to develop the condition, but it is rare.

The condition is more common in men with health problems such as heart conditions or high blood pressure.

How is Peyronie’s disease diagnosed?

If the curvature to the penis isn’t the main indicator, tests will be done to determine if a man is suffering from Peyronie’s disease.

Ultrasound scans may be performed to analyse the circulation of blood to the penis. During your consultation, the Urologist will use an injection to stimulate an erection. This allows the Urologist to see how big the curvature actually is.
