Conditions We Treat: Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie's disease is a connective tissue disorder similar to arthritis. Ask your doctor about treatment options if this condition does not resolve on its own.

Peyronie’s Disease: What You Need to Know

  • Peyronie’s disease affects as many as one in 11 men.
  • Men with Peyronie’s disease have bent erections, erectile pain and penile plaque. This plaque is a type of scar tissue that creates a visible lump along the penis.
  • The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease is unknown, but trauma to the penis is thought to play a role.
  • In about 20 percent of men, the condition improves on its own. For other men, management and treatment options are available.
