What is Peyronie’s Disease? Peyronie’s’ disease is a condition of scarring in the shaft of the penis, specifically a layer called the tunica albuginea. The scarring is a disorganized, excessive deposition of collagen that results in formation of a collagen plaque. Peyronie’s disease most often manifests in a triad of symptoms: pain, bending of the penis with an erection, and a palpable lump on the penis. Peyronie’s disease may also result in changes in shape such as narrowing on one or both sides of the penis, and erection trouble such as not being able to get an erection that is hard-enough for penetration or difficulty in maintaining an erection.
Treatment for Peyronie’s disease is usually initiated for a penis that is unusable, either because it’s too soft or to crooked.
The American Urological Association has published guidelines for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease that can be accessed online. I will put a link in the show notes.
