Peyronie’s Disease is thought to affect 1 to 9% of men. Men aged 50-60 are most at risk, although the disease occurs in younger and older men or in men with diabetes.
N.B. The lumps in Peyronie’s Disease are benign and not linked to cancer of the penis. Nor is it caused by sexually transmitted infections, such as gonorrhoea.
You will need to have a physical examination and an ultrasound.
Surgery is the only treatment known to be effective. However, if intercourse is possible without pain, Peyronie’s Disease may be managed without surgery. Drugs have been used to reduce the plaque in the initial stages along with injections to the plaque. Recently, shock wave therapy has been used.
The surgery is dependent on the patient plaque length and the area affected.
