Peyronie’s Disease is one of the most known sexual problems in men. It is also one that men dread to have for it results in a bent penis when erect. Peyronie’s disease is caused by scar tissue known as plaque, which forms inside the penis and thus causing the problem.
Peyronie’s disease in men, however, does not interfere while having sex, neither is it harmful to the man’s partner. Although while someone with Peyronie’s disease has sex, it’s often a painful experience, to begin with, and in the long run, if left untreated could be the cause of erectile dysfunction.
Cause of Peyronie’s disease
Like many sexual problems involving men and penis, the exact cause of Peyronie’s disease is unknown. Doctors often point to many factors but cannot tell exactly what causes it. Although with proper research it has been believed that the fibrous plaque that causes the problem, is formed in the first place possibly due to an aftereffect of trauma to the penis, that might have led to internal bleeding. In most cases, such injury might not be visible.
There are also links to a genetic problem, and in some cases, doctors suggest that both genes and an injury could be a combined factor. Although in more than 80% of the facts of Peyronie’s disease men are not able to recall a specific trauma to the penis that might have occurred.
Initially, the general belief with Peyronie’s disease was that it could spontaneously resolve, but that is not the case. The problem is very much associated with erectile dysfunction, and as far as statistics go, around 50% of men will have ED before developing PD and the other 50% men will subsequently develop ED after PD.
As far as treatments go, no reliable non-surgical method is known to cure the problem. Although many ways are known to stabilise the deformity; or even reduce the symptoms to allow the person to improve sexual function. Surgery, on the other hand, is the most reliable of treatments for Peyronie’s disease. With PD, the diagnosis is pretty much straightforward and easy to conduct, but the procedures remain the challenging part for doctors.
