Pictures of Peyronies disease and the exact mechanism of penile curvature
Peyronie’s disease has been called an exaggeration of the wound healing process, during which one or more flat and irregular non-cancerous plaques or fibrous scars develop under the skin along the penile shaft. Not only do these scars frequently cause pain during erection, but depending on the number, size and location of scar tissue, the penis can be slightly to severely distorted or shortened during erection or not at all.
Imagine a balloon with a small piece of tape on it. If the balloon is inflated the tape will prevent full expansion, and it will be distorted. PD causes a similar mechanism of distortion in the penis. The normal penis expands and elongates evenly resulting in a straight erection. But in Peyronie’s disease, normal elastic tissue is replaced by rather hard plaque tissue that is not elastic. When a man with Peyronie’s has an erection the plaque does not expand, thus the curve or twist. The degree of curved penis related to Peyronie’s disease range from mild to severe; some are so mild as to be detected only on autopsy, while others are so severe that surgery is necessary to reduce painful distortion. The scar may range from a few millimeters or may encompass the entire shaft of the penis. Pain, hardened scar formation and/or distortion may develop slowly or appear overnight in PD. Angulation of the erect penis from 5°- 45° is not uncommon, and can be greater; deformities can advance beyond 90º and are described as “J”, “cane handle” and “corkscrew”. Distortion or angulation of the non-erect penis is rare.
In a small percentage of cases with a milder form of the disease, inflammation may resolve without causing significant pain or permanent bending. Sexual difficulty and impotency also range from mild to severe, depending on the degree of deformity. In some extreme cases the scar may create a bottle-neck, collar-like, or hourglass-like distortion of the erect penis. The scar tissue may cause the penis to be limp or soft beyond the location of the nodule, leading to inability to have sexual intercourse. At the extreme, an erect penis may be so distorted (“J” or “corkscrew”) making intercourse impossible or at least extremely painful for both partners.
