As a writer of male health topics, I will receive inquiries from readers about Peyronie’s disease. They might have read rumors about this disease and are wondering if it is something that can affect them.
Others express the notion the condition is a myth. (It is not) And then there are those wondering what are the common Peyronie’s disease causesand cure. To try and help those readers out, I thought I would provide a brief look at the condition and what its causes truly are.
What Exactly Is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease might be one of the most troubling (and strangest) conditions that a man may suffer from. This disease refers to the instances where a man suffers from a curved penis. This can create a physically less than appealing aesthetic image many men would prefer not to embody.
Also, there can be sexual performance issues that can derive when a man has this condition. When the penis is severely curved, sexual performance becomes very difficult to engage in,
On a side note, Peyronie’s really is not a disease. It is a slight deformity that can be treated. To call it a disease is somewhat nebulous because it is an inaccurate description if there ever was one.
So, what are the common Peyronie’s disease causes? Can an understanding of these causes lead to finding the best path for reversing the condition? The following should help those interested in discovering an answer be able to do so.
The Common Peyronie’s Disease Causes
I fear not many men want to hear what I have to say right now, but it is the truth: there really is no clear consensus on what exactly causes Peyronie’s disease. The cause remains somewhat shrouded in mystery even after many years of research.
Then again, not as much research into male sexual health issues have been conducted as there has been in other issues over the years. So, we might not have a clear insight into the exact causes of the condition because research is minimal.
This is not to say NO research was performed. Studies have been conducted and the medical world does have a vague notion regarding what might be among the more probable causes of the condition.
The Biological Cause
We do know that the condition is the result of plaque that builds up in the penis. The plaque in the penis is not the same as the plaque that develops on the teeth. Rather, this type of plaque is scar tissue.
This scar tissue will form in the chambers of the penis which are known as the corpora cavernosa. Though not clearly visible, this scar tissue will have a serious effect which is the bending of the penis.
A Theory About The Cause Of Peyronie’s Disease
Why does this plaque develop? I would say that is the common question many will ask about the subject of Peyronie’s disease causes. Knowing why the plaque develops may lead many men to take steps to avoid its onset.
Granted, that might prove to be more difficult than the average person might think.
The major causes of this plaque would be injury or some other trauma. The injury can lead to minor internal bleeding that ends up becoming the scar tissue that can cause plaque. This, in turn, can lead to the bending and curving of the penis the condition embodies.
Roughly 1% of the men in the world suffer from this condition.
While there are definitely certainly sexual and lifestyle practices that can increase the chances of such an injury, the potential for trauma likely comes most from an unforeseen accident. For example, being hit in the groin in a freak work accident or sporting contest would not exactly be anything planned.
Therefore, they are not anything that can be completely avoided. However, taking extra care at all times to avoid injury is surely advised. This will not only protect against Peyronie’s disease, but it might very well protect against other errant injuries that might result.
Treatments For Peyronie’s Disease
There are ways to treat this condition. Some sources might cite surgery as being the way to correct it, but surgery may prove to be completely unnecessary. There are male extension devices that can be used to help straighten out the penis.
While commonly used for penis enlargement, devices such as Sizegenetics were originally created to cure Peyronie’s disease.
