Peyronie’s Disease & Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is Peyronie’s disease?
Peyronie’s disease is an inflammatory condition characterized by a buildup of scar tissue that causes your penis to curve or bend. This curvature can make it too painful to sustain an erection during sexual activity.
Most men have some penile curvature, which is entirely normal, but Peyronie’s causes your penis to bend severely in one direction. Your penis may look completely bent when you have a full erection. In some cases, Peyronie’s deforms your penis so much that sexual intercourse is not possible.
What causes Peyronie’s disease?
The exact cause of Peyronie’s isn’t know. Researchers believe that it is a result of a recurring injury to your penis. The injury provokes your penis to generate scar tissue which builds up causing this disease.
During a normal erection, the elastic tissues in your penis expand and blood fills your vessels. With Peyronie’s disease, the portion of your penis that has scar tissue is unable to stretch properly and your penis curves or bends drastically.
A few Peyronie’s disease sufferers did not suffer from an injury and but instead there is evidence of high cholesterol, diabetes, or another underlying condition that contributes to artery obstruction.
What are the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease?
Irregularities, bending, and curvatures of the penis are the main symptoms of Peyronie’s disease. Other symptoms of the condition are decreased erections, shortening of the penis, and total loss of an erection during intercourse. The symptoms of Peyronie’s disease often lead to anxiety and stress.
