Peyronies Disease: Symptoms, causes, and treatments

About

Peyronies Disease is the development of fibrous scar tissue inside a male penis that causes curved and painful erections. This might prevent men from any sexual encounters and simply make it difficult to get or maintain erection. This may further cause stress and anxiety too.

Peyronies Disease may affect 1 to 23% of men between 40 and 70 years of age.[1]

Peyronies Disease:
- Can be treated by a medical professional
- Is usually self-diagnosable
- Do not require lab tests or imaging
- Can last for years or even lifelong

The exact cause of this disease is yet not known. There are chances that the penis might have been damaged during sex, athletic activities, or in an accident. During the process of healing, sar tissue might form in a disorganized manner, which in turn leads to a curved structure.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of Peyronies Disease are:
- Erection problems
- Shortening of the penis
- Pain in erection
- A bend in the penis
- Formation of scar tissue under the skin of the penis

Treatment

Self-care: There is no such self-care treatment available for this disorder. People suffering from this need to get themselves checked by a doctor.

Medication: Doctors may prescribe medications, usually drugs that are injected into the penis. Interferon injections may also be prescribed as they help to break-down fibrous tissue. Nonsurgical options may include the shock-wave therapy to break up the scar tissue, penile traction therapy to stretch the penis and vacuum devices.

Specialists: For other severe kinds, consult a physician at the earliest. We at mfine can help you with various fields of health issues. You can get in touch with us onboard for a holistic treatment program.
