Peyronie’s Disease: What Is It?

Peyronie's diseasePeyronie’s disease is a condition in which scar tissue grows under the skin of the penis that results in curved, painful erections. Oftentimes, if you are dealing with this condition, it can be quite embarrassing. Sexual intercourse can be something that you dread because of the shape of your erections. It can also be embarrassing to speak with a doctor about this condition. However, you must speak with a medical professional if you are experiencing this disease, as it is painful to deal with on your own and there are treatment options. In this blog, we are going to discuss what causes Peryonie’s disease and what the symptoms are.

What Causes Peyronie’s Disease? 

Peyronie’s disease is normally caused by repeated injuries to the penis, either during sex or physical activity. These repeated injuries cause scar tissue to form under the skin of the penis, resulting in abnormally curved erections that are painful. If you are wondering if a slight curve in an erection is okay, it is completely fine. Slight curves in erections are normal, however, erections that have Peyronie’s disease have a sharp curve in them.

Risk Factors 


If somebody in your family has Peyronie’s disease, you have a higher chance of getting the condition.


Age is another big factor in Peyronie’s disease. Men in their 50s and 60s are mainly the ones who experience Peyronie’s disease.
