Understanding Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s disease is a form of erectile dysfunction that causes a curved and painful erection. It is a noncancerous condition resulting from a buildup of fibrous scar tissue, also called plaque. While a curved erection does not always necessitate treatment, it can make sexual intercourse difficult. According to a 2016 study on the prevalence of Peyronie's disease in the United States, an estimated 0.5% of adult males have this condition.
Patients with this disease may be able to feel the scar tissue through their skin or experience pain in a specific part of their penis as the scar tissue begins to form. Depending on the scar location, a patient’s penis may bend up, down, or toward the side since the scar tissue does not stretch. In most cases, the scar tissue forms on the top of the penis, causing it to curve upwards when erect.
Peyronie’s Disease Causes and Risk Factors
The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease is not completely understood as various factors play a role. Generally, this condition can occur as a result of repeated injury to the penis. Damage may also occur during sex, an accident, athletic activities, or an unknown trauma.
In other cases, Peyronie’s disease does not originate from injury or trauma but gradually develops, possibly due to certain health conditions or a genetic predisposition. For example, men with a history of this disease in their family or, who have certain connective tissue disorders, have an increased risk of developing this condition. Older age may also be a contributing factor as this condition is more prevalent in men in their 50s and 60s.
Receiving a Proper Diagnosis
Receiving a proper diagnosis is a key aspect of getting the right treatment for Peyronie’s disease. Patients will receive a physical examination where they will discuss any injuries, symptoms, and concerns. The physician will also feel the patient’s hardened scar tissue.
In some cases, an ultrasound is also necessary. This test will help reveal the location of the scar tissue, check for calcium buildup, and examine the blood flow in the penis. With this information, our team will determine the optimal treatment plan for the patient’s needs.
Traditional treatments for Peyronie’s disease typically involves oral pentoxifylline, Xiaflex® injections, or invasive surgery. However, these options are generally less effective and more lengthy and painful. In some cases, they can even result in worsened symptoms and shortening of the penis.
Surgery is a last resort for men with severe and disabling penile deformities that prevent them from engaging in sexual intercourse. Even if surgery succeeds in straightening a patient’s penis curvature, it can leave them with even worse erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, our team at Simply Men’s Health provides safe and effective treatment alternatives.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Peyronie’s disease affect my fertility?
No. This disease occurs when plaque forms under the skin of the penis. While this condition causes the penis to curve, it does not affect fertility nor cause any ejaculation or urination issues.
How long does Peyronie’s disease last?
In rare cases, Peyronie’s disease may go away on its own. However, it is usually a permanent condition. Although no treatment cures this disease 100% of the time, our treatments at Simply Men’s Health can help patients improve their symptoms and experience relief.
What are the stages of Peyronie’s disease?
There are two stages of Peyronie’s disease, the acute and chronic phases. The acute phase usually lasts about five to seven months but can last up to 18 months. Plaque forms under the penis, causing the curvature to worsen and sometimes pain. During the chronic stage, the plaque stops growing, and penis curvature no longer worsens.
What other complications are associated with Peyronie’s disease?
Peyronie’s disease can cause physical and mental health complications. Besides erectile dysfunction, other physical complications may include penile pain, reduced penis length, and the inability to have sexual intercourse. Men with this condition may also experience mental health complications due to stress and anxiety. According to a study in the journal of Translational Andrology and Urology, about 50% of men with Peyronie’s disease suffer from symptoms of depression, and more than 80% report distress related to their condition.
What is the best treatment for Peyronie’s disease?
Since every patient is different, there is no one best treatment method for all patients. What works well for one patient may not work for others. We recommend getting treatment early since this gives patients more options and increases the likelihood of positive results.
