I am sure you are wondering why more serious attention is not given to the condition of Peyronie’s disease. A common reason why it is not mentioned so often is that only 1% of the male population suffers from it.
That said, that still leaves a significant number of men potentially dealing with this problem. So, why are so many men’s magazines and online communities not investing the proper amount of time discussing Peyronie’s disease symptoms and treatments?
I will be quick to point out there is no conspiracy theory here. However, the condition can be a somewhat embarrassing one for many men so they might not exactly be very quick to discuss the problems they currently face due to having a penis with a severely pronounced bend or curve.
I will say this, despite the fact there may seem to be limited information released to the public on the topic of this condition, the internet has opened many doors for those wishing to conduct basic, revealing research about what thePeyronie’s disease symptoms are and how to treat it.
What Is Peyronie’s Disease?
For those men not completely familiar with this troubling condition, a basic description of Peyronie’s disease would be it is when the penis is severely bent or curved. This is due to the presence of scar tissue (plaque) in the chambers of the penis.
For some men, the condition may be minor. For others, the condition might be so serious that it significantly impairs their ability to have normal sexual intercourse.
The Basics of Peyronie’s Disease Symptoms
What are the most common symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease? Obviously, the fact the penis is bent or curved would be the main symptom. After all, this is what Peyronie’s disease is defined as. What many may not realize is this symptom can emerge gradually or rapidly.
Continual scarring over time might cause the problems. However, a quick and severe injury could lead to its onset almost immediately, which can prove to be a great shock to many men.
The Scar Tissue
Again, it is plaque (scar tissue) that contributes to the bend and curve of the penis. It might be possible to notice this scar tissue depending upon how pronounced the scar tissue might be underneath the skin of the penis.
As the scar tissue begins to develop, a lumpy appearance under the skin might manifest. A hard band around the penis might also be visible or felt.
The Bend Of The Penis
The actual bend of the penis may differ from man to man. This should be expected since different men will have different physiologies and their organs will manifest the Peyronie’s disease symptoms in different physical ways.
For example, for some men, the bend might be upwards but other men might experience a downwards bend. The bending could also be to the left or to the right and, in certain instances, such a bend could be extremely pronounced.
One of the most troubling curves a man could have to deal with would be an upward curve where the head of the penis literally turns up and around. This manifestation of Peyronie’s disease might even contribute to serious problems with sexual intercourse. It also has the potential to contribute to the shortening of the penis.
Among the more visually disturbing of alterations to the penis would be when the scar tissue causes the penis to take on an hour glass shape. This results from a band forming around the middle of the shaft.
This band will be both extremely tight and narrow causing a somewhat disfigured look to the penis. Such a band can even lead to problems with sexual performance.
Yes, it is possible that the curvature due to Peyronie’s disease can actually contribute to a feeling of pain. Excessive pain could not only make sexual intercourse difficult, it could be painful consistently throughout the entire day.
Those suffering from pain related to this condition are strongly advised to see a doctor about the problem and the discomfort.
There Are Treatments Available For Those Suffering From The Condition
Treatments do exist and they are not necessarily invasive ones. Surgery is an option, but this might be a last resort most would prefer to avoid. Commonly, penis extender devices such as SizeGenetics are used and they might be able to yield the desired result.
However, a decent time commitment might be required.
