Peyronie's disease is a connective tissue disorder of the penis that can cause bent erections, erectile pain and scar tissue that creates palpable penile lumps and/or penile curvature. The condition can resolve on its own, but sometimes treatment is needed — especially if symptoms prevent sexual activity.
