What is Peyronies Disease and what are my treatment options?
Updated: Mar 12, 2020
Peyronie’s disease affects men of all ages across the world. This disease is a benign condition, this is caused by scar tissue forming in the penis, which can result in a bent, rather than straight, erection. For most men with Peyronie's disease, they can still have sex, however, in some it can cause discomfort, erectile dysfunction or difficulty with sex.
There are many different treatments for Peyronie's disease, however, some are more successful than others. Vacuum pump therapy (SomaCorrect) is a very good initial treatment which is successful in some cases. Surgical procedures such as plication and incision & grafting can also be used to correct the curvature in the penis.
For men who experience pain with Peyronie's disease, the best treatment is painkillers but a course of low-intensity shock waves can reduce the pain. This can be used alongside other therapies to ensure that symptoms associated with Peyronie's are reduced.
