Peyronies pictures of the classic curved penis shown on this page are offered to widen the experience and education of anyone interested in this terrible problem. The pictures of Peyronie’s disease found at the bottom of this page are graphic full male nudity, presented for educational purposes.

In the experience of PDI, most men do not understand the full consequences and eventual degree of distortion that are possible from Peyronie’s disease – until it is too late. Because they do not know how bad the penile curvature, Peyronie’s pain, and loss of sexual function can be, there is a tendency to underestimate the problem. Thus it is assumed that the small problem will stay “just an inconvenience, and hardly noticeable”. For some the curve or distortion starts small and stays small. However, for others it starts small and just continues to get more distorted, more curved, and perhaps more painful, eventually resulting in total loss of sexual function. At this point most men resort to surgical correction. For a discussion, click Peyronie’s disease surgery.

If your Peyronie’s penis is causing sexual distress, you might be interested in the in-depth and detailed discussion and loads of helpful information found in Dr. Herazy’s   second book, “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”

There is a direct, safe and effective technique for manual penis stretching that has been researched and developed by PDI.  For details, click on stretching curved penis.

Without fully understanding where Peyronie’s disease might take them, it is easy for some men to not take the curved penis of Peyronies too seriously. The uninformed and uneducated can accept and agree with the wishful thinking of the standard medical treatment to do absolutely nothing for PD in its early stages.

Peyronie’s Pictures: an Education and Wake-Up Call

To help comprehend and verify the nature of the Peyronie’s disease problem, many men are shocked to see a Peyronies picture for the first time. It can be a real wake-up call.

These Peyronies pictures are not intended to aid a layperson make a self-diagnosis, nor are they intended to guide Peyronie’s disease treatment. They are offered to encourage prompt medical evaluation and attention about any problem that might be PD. Bear in mind, just as every person is a unique individual, with unique physical characteristics – this even extends to the appearance of the penis in health and disease. Simply because you have a curved penis, or even a severely bent penis with a 90 degree angle, does not necessarily mean you have Peyronies. Do not think that your penis must look like any of these. Only a physician experienced in this condition can accurately diagnose this problem.

Before viewing these Peyronie’s pictures, please review what causes the dramatic penile curves and distortions you are about to see.

Peyronie’s disease can be considered an exaggeration of the wound healing process. It is characterized by the presence of one or more flat and irregular benign (non-cancerous) fibrous plaques or scars anywhere along the shaft of the penis, as well as painful erections. Usually there is only one scar, but multiple scars do occur.

These scars can stop full expansion of the penis during erection, resulting in various degrees and patterns of distortion. 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. For more information, Anatomy of the Penis and Related Areas.

Peyronies pictures showing the erect penis from 5°- 45° are not uncommon, sometimes 90º or more. Sexual difficulty and impotency also range from mild to severe, depending on the degree of curved penis deformity.

    Greetings dking,

    You will have to be more specific with your questions about Peyronie’s disease. There are many dosages for many types of therapy. Which therapy do you mean?

    When you order from Peyronie’s Disease Institute you will be given suggested dosage ranges to begin your self-administered treatment for whatever products you order. We provide full information needed for whatever therapy you decide to use.

    Overall, dosage is worked out over time by slowly increasing dosage to determine what level of therapy is needed to make a change in the size, shape and density of your Peyronie’s disease scar.

    Lastly, when you order from PDI you will be given detailed information about starting dosage and how to regulate your therapy for best results. We provide full information needed for whatever therapy you decide to use.

    Greetings Chris,

    Although the average age of onset for Peyronie’s disease is about 54 years, there are many younger men who develop this problem; i have worked with many teenagers with Peyronie’s disease.

    If you are interested in the gentle manual penis stretching technique Peyronie’s Disease Institute developed in 2008 in a research project, I suggest you simply get the CD video that is available on the PDI website. The technique is simple and easy to learn, but the CD video is one hour long to completely describe in detail how to do it correctly.

    More of  a question than a comment, I am currently seeing a neurologist for non- Parkinsons tremors and have been on various anticonvulsants for about 9 months. Three months ago i developed Peyronie’s disease and am now seeing an urologist. I'm taking colcrys and vit e and am doing the series of injections. I am also starting to use a streacher.  My neuro said the drugs could have possibly caused  the Peyronie’s disease, though studies are unsubstantiated. My uro says probably not and that I just fit the profile, white, 55 yo, etc. To my knowledge I did nothing to injure my penis and the bend occurred in about 5 days. What's your opinion? Are some of my drugs causing the Peyronie’s disease bend or is this just a coincidence?

  4. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greeting Dan,

    In the absence of direct trauma, the next cause of Peyronie’s disease is usually a drug reaction.

  5. Dr.Herazy says:

    Go to the PDI website and read about your problem so that you will know more about Peyronie’s disease. TRH

  6. dan cee says:

     
    Thank you for the info.  Without the anticonvulsants, the tremors are so severe that I can' t hold a spoon or write. With the Peyronie’s disease, erections are painful enough to lose sexual ability.   In your opinion, will the drugs continue to interfere and cause additional Peyronie’s disease problems?  I feel like I'm in the poverbial "between a rock and a hard place".  Pun intended, I realize there is no quick cure and a sense of humor can go a long way.  I also need to mention that I have HIV/AIDS. So guys, once you get your PD on the mend, it ain't like having a new toy. Be responsible, be safe, get tested.    Be well, Dan

  7. Lorenzo says:

    I am a 46 year old male. My penis has a gradual curvature to the left of approx. 35-40 degrees. Otherwise, it appears normal with no other visible or physical irregularity (internal or external).  It has been this way as long as I can remember, possibly since birth so I think I do not have Peyronie’s disease. My condition has been stable with no change for the better or worse. Intercourse is not painful and can be quite enjoyable with minor positional adjustments. My main concern is the embarrasment and psychological struggle associated with having this problem and also discussing it with my partner. Luckily, she seems very understanding and claims it does not matter to her. For my piece of mind, I would like to finally address the problem and look for a solution.
    What do you reccomend as a beginning course of treatment for my situation?
    Thank you

  8. Deus says:

    Since i was young I have always had a downward semicicular bend in my penis when erect but no scars or nodules felt. Could it be Peyronie’s disease.

  9. Rebecca says:

    my boyfriend has this to his penis and very scared to talk to someone because the thinks it could be Peyronie’s disease. can someone help ?

  10. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Rebecca,

    Yes, Peyronie’s disease can be very scarey especially when you know nothing about it.

    I suggest that both of you spend a little time on the PDI website learning about Peyronie’s disease so he feels less fearful, and then makes up his mind he is going to do something to help himself to eliminate the problem. I also suggest he goes to a urologist for a complete examination and to receive the benefit of a formal diagnosis to establish if this is Peyronie’s disease or not. TRH

  11. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Dickking,

    Peyronie’s disease is typically not associated with color changes. So, I would need to know a bit more about your blue penis. TRH

  12. Mick says:

    Hi,have had Peyronie’s disease for ten odd years now. It hurt for awhile but its ok now. The wife loves it,now 63y/o and going strong. It is nearly 45degrees up thank god,just don’t panic.
    Mick

  13. mike says:

    hello i have a bend penis about 5 to 10 degrees downwards,and always have for as long as i can remember but have no hard scar tissue that i can see or feel.might i still have Peyronie’s disease and would the streching techniques help to correct this either way?thanks.

  14. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Mike,

    Based on the limited information you offer no one can say if you have Peyronie’s disease or not. However, since your curvature is downward and you apparently have had it since childhood, my guess is that it is probably a normal congenital variation (something you were born with). To determine if this is actually Peyronie’s disease I suggest you contact a competent urologist to examine you.

    The mild manual stretching technique developed by PDI was never tested on congenital penile curvature, only verified cases of Peyronie’s disease. For this reason I cannot answer how it might work with you. TRH

  15. eddy says:

    I am 65 years of age and very healthy except for the bent penis from Peyronie’s disease for about 9 months and getting worse. It is bent downwards midway by about 20 degrees, erection is not as hard and intercourse is degraded slightly. With viagra or similar medication the erection is better. Can you please advise if, a) Abstinence for some time will help cure Peyronie’s disease? b) Will use of viagra or similar medicines make the situation worse.
    Thanks

    Eddie

  16. leo says:

    Recently, I’ve noticed I have a sharp twinge on the left side, just under where the head starts. It feels like a string cutting. Is this part of the Peyronie’s disease? My Peyronie’s disease showed up 6 years ago at 51, and it’s gotten better than it was, but it seems to come and go, move around a little. My full erection has never returned like it was before which is very depressing. But now the sharp pain is worrisome. I will get that video. Anything else you can say about why my Peyronie’s disease feels this way?

  17. Gerhard says:

    Hi, I was also diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease about a year ago. At first I only felt a tiny bump on my shaft, that's when I went to see my urologist. He gave me Vitamin E and pain killers and said I have to live with it, he can't help me any further. I used the Vitamin E capsules for a couple of months with no efect and then at the beginning of the year I noticed a slight bend, that's when I started stressing. I went on the web night after night reading about Peyronie’s disease and came across Serracor from Biomediclabs. I orderred a load of pills from them for quite a price and it's been 2 months but still no reaction (they did say it can take a long period), but I'm in 2 minds to order again. I'm from South Africa and it's very difficult to get help down here. I don't want to spend my life savings on 20 different treatments that don't work. On the net it looks like there's not a great chance of beating this Peyronie’s disease. Do you have any hope/help for me. My penis curvature is about 30 degrees upwards and it feels if there are two bumps on my shaft, one in the middle and one closer to the glans. Do you maybe know if Serracor actually works against Peyronie’s disease? They claim to have a 80% success rate?
    Thanks in advance for you time listening to me, regards, Gerhard

  18. Abram says:

    Hello,
    I have a Peyronie’s disease question concerning the hourglass shape but while flaccid. I sometime experience this when I'm nervous or when I feel the need to have a bowel movement. I started noticing it about a month ago and I'm not sure if it is something related to Peyronie's disease or not. Any advice?

  19. Anu says:

    Hi, i have Peyronie’s disease. My penis are bent to the left and i haven't any pain or stress when i do the self ejaculation. But i am in a big confuse that i can marry or not? Its happen by born. What i do to get rid from it?

  20. Stephen says:

    Dr. Herazy,
    I am 47 and in good health but I have a question for you about Peyronie’s disease. This past weekend I noticed an indention about 2 or 3cm, or roughly the size of half a nickel while looking straight down at my  erection which got me to thinking about Peyronie’s disease. It is approx. 2/3 of the length distal to the tip on the right side only. Its onset had clearly been within the previous 48 hours, as that was the time of my last erection and was normal. I've had no history of any abnormality other than occasional ED, for which I take Levitra 10mg. There is no pain or discomfort. No dysuria, or problems ejaculating, though rigidity is compromised enough to affect my sexual performance. The condition is also atraumatic. I have had at least one erection daily since discovery and it is still present during each one. I take a beta blocker (atenolol) qd 12.5mg as maintenence for SVT, but have for more than 20 years so I don't consider that as a contributor though listed as a possibility. I have made an appointment with a urologist, however, that won't be until the end of the month (earliest date I could get).
    I would welcome your professional opinion about the possibility of Peyronie’s disease. Thanks.

  21. Kev says:

    Hi all,
    I have been diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease and am trying to live with it. I was diagnosed when I was 31 and 2 years on the problem is evolving all the time. I am getting an increasing number of Peyronie’s disease scars but I have now been discharged from the hospital because all they will offer is surgery which I do not want. The evolving issue has its positives and negatives, the scars have straightened the shaft but made it significantly less stable and maintaining an erection is becoming a problem and of course it is significantly shorter and thinner than in the past which leads to confidence issues in the bedroom. I wondered if it was common for the condition to continue to get worse, I must have approx 10 Peyronie’s disease scars as it stands and I worry when it will stop. What is the best course of action, I can not afford the significant sums of money I have seen on this website so looking for something accessible and cost effective if at all possible.

  22. michael says:

    i am sure sure i have Peyronie’s disease my penis bends up and in the middle of the shaft looks like an elastic band was placed there. I seem to have lost length and girth. I had mentioned it to my doctor but he seemed to go around the issue is there any kind of cure, i eat well drink plenty of orange juice as well as ensure. I have not had sex in about eight years due to my wife having cancer she has passed now and i would like to start over. I am worried a bit about what my penis looks like if you could be any help i would appreciate it. Its not as bad of some of the pictures of Peyronie’s disease shown but does look like a couple of the pictures 

  23. Steven says:

    Hey! So yeah i have a problem and i do think that it is Peyronie’s disease. So im 17 years old, and well, my penis doesnt necessarily bend really at all, however, it does have mild indentations towards the base, and some indentations towards the middle of the shaft. Also maybe very slight shortening of length, and loss of girth…maybe. Slight inflamation on the shaft in general. It does curve verrrry slightly to the left, but slight curvature is normal, and id go as far as to say that its not really noticeable. But the thing is is that i dont think the curvature has always been there, and im worried it might get worse? Im not like a worried little under educated teenager though, so please feel free to reply as if im an adult. Thank you!

  24. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Steven,

    You might not have Peyronie’s disease. Considering your age, I suggest that you first have your suspicion confirmed or refuted after a thorough examination to determine the cause of your observations. TRH

  25. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Michael,

    I suggest that you review the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website a bit to determine if you feel that you wish to proceed with Alternative Medicine treatment. Any help i could offer you would be in the form of answering specific questions about Peyronie’s disease treatment. TRH

  26. Richard says:

    Within the last two months I noticed that my penis is started bending to the left and I am worried I have Peyronie’s disease. I was taking an anti inflamatory for back pain and I’m wondering if the med caused the problem, my penis seems somewhat shorter as well, what can I do to rectify the problem.

  27. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Richard,

    The first thing you should do is get yourself checked out by a urologist to determine if you have Peyronie’s disease.

    If it happens that you do have Peyronie’s disease you will want to begin a conservative course of care to help your body heal and repair the infiltration of excess fibrin and collagen in the deep tissue of the shaft. It is this mass of internal scar tissue that is causing your bend to the left. It might appear to be a small point of differentiation, but in Peyronie’s disease the actual problem is the internal collection of fibrin and collagen under the skin of the shaft that causes distortion of an erection, and not the penile curvature itself; the penile curvature would not exist if it were not for the presence of abnormal deposit of fibrin and collagen. Peyronie’s disease is all about the subdermal scar tissue, not the obvious bend or distortion.

    I would have to know the name of the medication to know if it is a possible cause of your current situation.

    For treatment options, please go to the home page of the PDI website and click on the several links that give helpful information about what you can do to help your body heal and repair Peyronie’s disease.

  28. Dan says:

    Hello, I have concerns about Peyronie’s disease because I suffered a low grade penile fracture about 2 months ago. I call it low grade because when it happened during woman-on-top coitus there was no audible popping sound, no swelling or visible bruising, no hematuria, and no immediate loss of tumescence. I was able to continue and ejaculate. Since then I have no problems achieving an erection or ejaculation, but there is a slight bend downwards and to the right at the distal 1/3rd of the shaft. I was referred to a urologist whom I consider to be very knowledgeable and competent. He prescribed Verapamil topical cream which I am to apply 2 times per day. He said this should deal with the scar tissue and the bend in my penis will resolve itself. He said this could take up to 2 years. I read that there are some undesirable side affect from having Verapamil in your bloodstream for extended periods, including fatigue. Also I read about someone suffering from Peyronie’s disease who used Verapamil and it actually made it worse. I don’t suffer from Peyronie’s disease. What I am wondering is this safe and appropriate for my situation? I hope I have given enough info and thanks for your response.

  29. zackery says:

    i think i have Peyronie’s disease, my penis is mildly curved upward and to the right a little bit. i heard this can be caused by the way a man masturbates. i usualy use my right hand and masturbate almost everyday. wut do i do?

  30. Ian says:

    Dear Doctor,

  31. Sam says:

    Hi doc,
    I am 23 and have Peyronie’s disease, it just occurred to me one unfortunate day.

    I have never had any sex with any girl till date, and so I am very disappointed with my penis. I feel like committing a suicide due to this problem.
    I get varied erections.
    Sometimes it starts paining, and sometimes there is nn erection at all, even when am expecting one…
    My penis does not retract & is deflecting slightly towards the left.
    It normally pains even when I touch the left downside of it.
    I am taking 2 oral doses/day of vit e but there seems no improvement please help me…..

  32. radovan says:

    ok i have the peyronie’s disease almost 2 years and i am using the device for streching and its not been useful so much
    but anyway i am scheduled the surgery in three months time from now but i am scared because it says impotence may occur is it true ?because what is life if you can not have sex .please tell me is it true,and what should i do.
    thank you in advance radovan

  33. zackery says:

    my penis curves up and about halfway up the shaft its crooked to the right a little bit, and from the middle down there little bumps. do u think i have peyronie’s disease?

  34. jasonbag says:

    hello, i just want to ask if i also have Peyronie’s disease. i have penis bent to the right. i noticed this since i am first year high school (13 years old) and i am now 26 y/o. i don’t feel pain and it dose not affect my sex life. every time my penis is erect no pain at all.i am just curious if i also have Peyronie’s diseasenies. what should i do to correct the bent. thank you.please advice

  35. Steve says:

    My wife has often complained of pain and discomfort during sex if I fully penetrate. I think her pain is coming from how much my penis curves upward. Are there any other potential side effects/health risks to her?

  36. warren says:

    Hi
    i developed Peyronie’s disease diagnosed by urologist after I started on co plavix. I am 61. Within a couple of months on the medication the penis became very bent at the top of the penis and was very painful during sex ,and also a dent appeared down the shaft. After being taken off plavix the top of my penis straighted out, now I have no pain but I still have the dent in the shaft but seems to be getting a bit better.

  37. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings,

    Your wife’s pain is due to excessive stretching of the vaginal wall probably due to the degree of curvature of your penile distortion. You should always pay attention to a pain signal the body is experiencing since it indicates either an actual problem or an impending problem.

    I suggest that you read my book, “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex’ to learn how you might be able to improve your sexual technique and not risk her health while engaging in intercourse. TRH

  38. T.A. says:

    I am 24 years old and have Peyronie’s disease. I do recall an injury in my early teen years in which while masturbating the left side of my penis became swollen, blue-ish, and hurt a lot. I do not really remember what my penis looked like in the years that followed, but I do remember noticing in my late teens that the right side of my penis was slightly larger, while the left was slightly curved inward. When I was 22 I started to notice that my penis was bent to the left when it was NOT erect… It wasn’t until more recently that I started looking around online about this issue and discovered it was Peyronie’s disease. Can it be corrected if it is so many years old?? I have read parts of your website and like the fact that you take a natural approach to correcting this. Also few questions on Vitamin E:

    You recommend “Yasoo” Vitamin E products since they contain both the tocopheral and tocotrienal groups of Vitamin E, but they are no longer around. You also mention A.C. Grace Unique E. However this only has the tocopheral group (not tocotrienal). Where can I get something that has both? What proportions of each of the 8 Vitamin E types should be taken?

    Does Vitamin E have any lasting side effects? My dad tells me that he took Vitamin E a long time ago (not for Peyronie’s disease) and he started developing thick hairs on his beard and in his nose – he even needed to start trimming his nose hairs as a result. He immediately stopped taking Vitamin E, but the thick hairs are a problem to this day. Is this common? Are there any other side effects?

    Also, can you provide the most conservative treatment for Peyronie’s disease? I understand your approach of providing multiple points of support for the body to heal itself and the synergy of multiple treatments, but at this point I’m not willing to take so many things at once, and that’s not to mention that I graduated from college two years ago and have an enormous amount of debt so spending a lot on so many products is a bit out of my reach. I will purchase whatever products you do recommend through your website to give you the business.

    Thanks and regards.

  39. Laura says:

    My boyfriend’s penis is curved 90 degrees upwards, but there are no scars on the shaft. Could this be Peyronie’s disease?

  40. Dan says:

    I thought that I might have had Peyronie’s disease because of my curved penis . But as I a so relieved to see that I don’t have it I am wrought with guilt for these poor men who are infected with Peyronie’s disease.I am so sorry for all you men with it and I really do hope that you men can get better both physically and mentally.

  41. Dave says:

    I had prostate cancer and went through 50 radiation treatments and some chemo injections. All is well however in the months following,I developed Peyronie’s disease(I think). my penis has a bend in the middle at 90 degrees with a noticeable reduction in length and girth just like the picture. Is it possible that the radiation treatments could be the cause of my Peyronie’s disease?

  42. Terry says:

    I have developed Peyronie’s disease in the ladt year with a severe upward bend similar to your pictures. My urologist told me beta blockers can be a part of this, in my case metroprolol. I am taking vitamin E, 1000 units per day and I have stopped taking the metropolol on my own. I have never had high blood pressure but this was perscribed after a minor heart attack 5 years ago. What else can I do to reverse this condition?

  43. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Terry,

    Sorry to learn of your problem with Peyronie’s disease.

    First, talk to the doctor who prescribed your beta blocker to tell him of your concern and get him to find another drug as a substitute that is not a beta blocker; you do not want to simply quit this kind of medication or ignore your cardiovascular problem.

    Second, I get the impression you might be looking for an A-B-C kind of answer about Peyronie’s disease treatment. There is none. Treatment is not the same for everyone and each plan has to be customized to the individual.

    You ask for help getting started treating your problem. That is always the case because it is always difficult knowing where to begin. Probably the best page on the PDI site to get started is Get Started with Peyronie’s Disease Treatment. This will get you pointed in the right direction. Look at the home page in the upper right corner area. You will see two large yellow buttons; click on the one for “New Customer.” You will be given many ideas how to begin treatment.

    Peyronie’s disease is a very difficult and stubborn problem to treat successfully. In order to make any level of correction of the problem requires that a man be prepared to spend time and effort to build up his inner strength to correct his problem. That is a key idea to understand how to go about treating PD – you are treating yourself to cure the problem.

    Even if you gave details about your condition, the absolute best treatment plan for your Peyronie’s disease is still something you have to determine for yourself based on how you actually respond to your initial treatment plan. This is a key concept: A successful treatment plan is developed over time with trial and error using careful observation of what works or doesn’t work to make favorable changes to the size, shape, density and surface features of your Peyronie’s disease scar(s). I can get you started with your care, but the actual work is done by you. You must be in control of your plan, guiding your self-treatment. I can and will help you with ideas and suggestions for your plan modification as you advance. We can work together with me supplying suggestions for you as needed, based on the information you determine by monitoring the size, shape, density and surface features of your Peyronie’s disease scar tissue to determine what is working and what is not working. This is the best and most accurate way of approaching your problem and being successful.

    Treatment for Peyronie’s disease can begin with any of the plans you see presented on the PDI website. Progress will tend to be faster and more dependable with a plan that is larger and more aggressive than one that is smaller and more conservative. Most people tend to use a plan that is as large and diverse as they can afford.

    You should keep in mind that any of the suggested sample plans you see on the website can be modified as you decide by being made smaller or larger. In other words, you can change any plan to suit your ideas, with the idea in mind that success is usually related to how much is done to recover from this problem.

    Most people start with the medium size plan and if not successful after a month or two, they will add a little therapy to it until they notice progress and correction to take place. This progress is noted as reduction of the Peyronie’s disease scar: smaller, softer, smoother, more difficult to locate, etc.

    As you can tell from the length and detail of this response, PDI is here to make a real difference with your problem and we have Peyronie’s disease treatment information you will not find anywhere. If you want some help and ideas that you are not now getting, I would be pleased to help you along. However, be aware that my knowledge and experience in treating PD with Alternative Medicine is exclusive to the specific therapies you will find on the PDI website. These are the therapies I have worked with since 2002 with countless hundreds of men to improve their Peyronie’s disease. My expertise is with these specific products that were selected because of their ability to influence the PD scar. I have found that use of other therapy products is not as successful. For this reason I limit my discussion of therapy to what I know best.

    Please email me any questions you might have about treatment of Peyronie’s disease with Alternative Medicine, I will be happy to help you in any way that I can. TRH

    Greetings Dave,

    More likely your Peyronie’s disease started as a result of catheterizations what were done as part of your prostate cancer treatment, rather than your radiation. If you search over the PDI website you will find several articles about the trauma of rough catheter insertion can result is Peyronie’s disease. If you talk to the doctor who did the catheterizations he/she will likely say there is no connection, but I hear of this connection very frequently; it is a real problem that is well hidden by doctors who protect each other from legal responsibility.

    Greetings T.A.,

    Over the years I have worked with many chronic cases of Peyronie’s disease; some cases 10-12 years old.

    Peyronie’s Disease Institute has used A.C. Grace brand of Unique E because of its high quality, natural formulation and good pricing. All people using PDI plans now use this type of vitamin E.

    I sincerely doubt your father’s hair growth pattern was changed by taking vitamin E. This kind of side effect has never been reported anywhere in the scientific literature; it was probably just a coincidence.

    The most conservative treatment can be found on the PDI website on the store page http://peyronies-disease-help.com/pdi-store-existing-customer/ All you have to do is familiarize yourself with our suggestions to see which one of these plans you might want to use. TRH Peyronie’s disease

    Greetings Laura,

    Some men have a natural curvature of the penis. If this 90 degree bend is something new (he never had it as a child or as a young man, but has just started recently) for your boyfriend then it is possible that he has Peyronie’s disease. You should tell him to go see his doctor to have his situation diagnosed and evaluated.

    In Peyronie’s disease the scar or scars are not on the outside, they are on the inside or internal. For this reason, even if he has Peyronie’s disease, you would not be able to see the scars. This fibrous scar structures must be located and examined by a doctor since they are often difficult to find. TRH

  47. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Warren,

    You were very lucky indeed. Usually Peyronie’s disease does not reverse if you stop taking the drug that caused it. Perhaps your Peyronie’s disease would have improved a bit during this time, since this does happen sometimes. TRH

  48. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Jasonbag,

    A bent penis does not always mean a man has Peyronie’s disease; some men have a natural penis curvature that can sometimes be rather pronounced or extreme. And not all cases of Peyronie’s disease are associated with pain; some men can have a rather severe bent penis and no pain at all – not during sex and not during erection or afterward. As you can see, many of the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease can be quite variable, making diagnosis tricky in some cases. If you can clearly recall having a straight erection at an early point in your life (in your case before you were 13 years of age), that would mean there is a possibility your current curved penis could be related to Peyronie’s disease. Further, presence of one or more lumps of fibrous tissue or Peyronie’s scars below the skin surface or loss of size from prior conditions while erect are more important to establish a PD diagnosis. First get a formal PD diagnosis to know if you must do anything about the bent penis you have. It might be normal for you. TRH

    Greetings Radovan,

    I do not like the penis stretching devices – any of them – because I have been told by hundreds of men that their Peyronie’s disease started with the use of a penis stretcher. I think they are dangerous to men because they are able to easily over-stretch and tear penis tissue, without the man even knowing it is happening. This leads to more injury for someone like you who already has Peyronie’s disease. Also, I have been told by hundreds of men who have used these stretcher devices that their Peyronie’s disease has not been helped by using them. Over the years I have seen fewer ads for these penis stretchers because I think many of these companies have stopped advertising then because of legal trouble.

    Problems with sex are common with Peyronie’s disease, and this is why I wrote the book “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex” many years ago. If you are having these kinds of issues please look at http://peyronies-disease-help.com/product/peyronies-disease-sex/ TRH

    Greetings Sam,

    There is much to say to you about your Peyronie’s disease, more than I can write in a single response like this. I suggest you read as much as you can about this problem because you will learn that about half of the cases clear up on their own, and we are helping a lot of the men who have Peyronie’s disease by using Alt Med. But we at PDI are not using vitamin E alone, we are suggesting that you use a wide array of different vitamins, minerals, enzymes and techniques to help your body heal the Peyronie’s disease to the best of your ability. It does not work for everyone, but it does help enough men that we are getting a good reputation for making a big difference in the lives of lots of men who have lost hope. Please give me a call if you need to talk about this subject. TRH

    Greetings Ian,

    Many different drugs are implicated in causing Peyronie’s disease, and some of them are indeed used to treat cardiac problems. Since you did not mention the drugs you take by name I can only make this general statement. But based on your comments it certainly sounds like you could have Peyronie’s disease.

    If you spend some time reading the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website you will learn there is much that you can do for yourself to increase you ability to heal Peyronie’s disease. Half of cases of Peyronie’s disease goes away without any direct effort; the body heals itself of the PD scar tissue by action of the immune system. TRH

  54. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Zachary,

    There are several factors or findings that must be present to make a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease: PD is more than having a bent penis. Penis curvature or distortion is an important finding in most cases of Peyronie’s disease, but it is not always present and so a man can have PD and have a fairly straight penis. And a man can have a curved penis and not have Peyronie’s disease. So, a bent penis is not always a good indicator if PD is present. I suggest you go to your family doctor and have yourself checked out so you will know for sure what is going on in your case.

    Masturbation repeatedly with one hand will not, by itself, cause Peyronie’s disease. Rough and abusive masturbation, with any hand or without using a hand, can lead to injury that can result in Peyronie’s disease. However you masturbate be gentle; do not get rough or so carried away that you start to do crazy stuff to yourself. If you go easy on yourself you will be fine. TRH

  55. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Dan,

    Time will tell if you develop Peyronie’s disease. Relatively minor trauma can induce enough injury and inflammation to lead to Peyronie’s disease; so minor that a man does not notice the initiating trauma, yet PD occurs. It is like the guy who takes makes a funny step down out of his car like he has a thousand times before, but he does it in such a way that a freak fracture occurs; the injury is out of proportion to the trauma. It can happen, and based on what you have written about a compound bend downward and to the right, a urologist saying there is scar tissue inside the shaft, a urologist prescribing a common Peyronie’s disease drug, and telling you it might take two years to go away sounds like he could be leaving the door open to the possibility that you are in the early stages of Peyronie’s disease. You might want to check this possibility out with that urologist so you know what you are dealing with. I might be wrong in this regard and with my assessment, but I might be reading it right. Perhaps you misunderstood what the urologist said.

    Yes, there are side effects of prolonged ingestion of Verapamil, and yes, I personally and others I have communicated with have had out Peyronie’s disease worsen while taking Verapamil for their Peyronie’s disease. TRH

  56. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Deus,

    If your penis has had this same kind of curvature since you were a child it is not likely that you have Peyronie’s disease. TRH

  57. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Kev,

    Peyronie’s disease is a tough problem to live with because of the pain and how it can interfere with and undermine personal relationships.

    Peyronie’s disease can continue to evolve and deteriorate over time, sometimes for some men (since it seems that so many men experience slight variations in how the problem evolves) it can make the penis change shape and poor erection function for many years. However, most men find their Peyronie’s disease stabilizes after 1-2 years.

    No treatment is cost effective if it does not work. If it does work, no treatment cost makes sense. Some people try a smaller size program or a modification of a regular plan to see if their tissue can respond to a modified plan. Good luck to you. TRH

  58. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Stephen,

    Considering the length of time you have used Levitra and Atenolol these two could by themselves result in Peyronie’s disease. However, since the indentation is of such a greatly recent onset, and your erections and penis size have not been negatively impacted, at this time it is too soon to say you exhibit signs of Peyronie’s disease. Good luck to you. TRH

  59. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Anu,

    A penis bend to the left or right is not a problem if your ejaculation is normal. If you were born this way and there is no Peyronie’s disease there is no reason to change anything. Many women can receive a bent penis with no problem if they are prepared by loving attention. You will be able to marry and have children. TRH

    Greetings Gerhard,

    I cannot comment on the success rate of Serracor; I do not have experience working with it for Peyronie’s disease treatment. I have not heard anything good or bad about it. I am busy doing my own work, finding good success with other enzyme products as you see listed on our site.

    I can tell you that I have worked with well over a thousand different cases of Peyronie’s disease between 2002 and 2016, using the Alt Med ideas you see on the PDI website. We do not do formal Peyronie’s disease research or have any controlled studies in which we do hospital- or university-grade research, so I cannot give you exact percentage results of success. I must rely upon the comments and reports that are sent to me from people like you who use our ideas and products and tell me how they have done treating their Peyronie’s disease. This is a very informal way of learning how our ideas work, but it is the best I can do under the current circumstances. In this way I have learned that for every 8-10 men who report success (from either mild improvement all the way to total and complete elimination of the PD scar tissue) I receive one report of failure. This is not a bad success rate when you consider that Alt Med is not supposed to do anything for Peyronie’s disease. The PDI concept for Peyronie’s disease treatment is based on the fact that half of the cases of Peyronie’s disease go away on their own, or they self-heal. Just like a broken arm, a head cold, or a cut on your foot, the body has the ability to recover and repair what is wrong with it, and half of the time the body eliminates the PD scar without help. The PDI concept is to give the body all the possible help (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and anything else that might assist that process) to get rid of the Peyronie’s disease to the best of its ability. We are just trying to support the body’s effort to heal itself; it’s as simple as that.

    I have no idea if the PDI concepts will help you. You just have to try your best, follow our detailed suggestions as carefully and faithfully as you can, and see what happens to your Peyronie’s disease. Good luck to you. TRH

  62. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Leo,

    I can tell you that many of the things about Peyronie’s disease (pain; penis distortions; size, shape, density and surface of the scar tissue; even the location of the scar tissue) seem to change over time. Sometimes the changes can be small or large, and sometimes the time required for the changes to occur can be short or long. This great variability of Peyronie’s disease makes it difficult to live with, diagnose and treat.

    The important thing I feel this variability of Peyronie’s disease tells me is this: This problem responds to different things going on inside your body (my personal and individual biochemistry that changes from hour to hour and even from minute to minute), and this is the reason the scar, curvature, pain and other symptoms come and go, get bad and then get worse. My study of Peyronie’s disease when I first developed my own severe case in 2002 was primarily about why this variability was going on; not only going on, but going on so rapidly at times. Men would report on websites or forums that their PD would change this way and that, that things would look like they were sometimes drastically different from day to day, or even from AM to PM. I noticed the same kinds of things and it fascinated and worried me. Was I going crazy, or this terrible condition really changing so much? If a person has a broken bone, it does not vary. If a person has cataracts, it does not vary like Peyronie’s disease. If a person has a liver cancer, it does not vary like Peyronie’s disease. This variability indicated to me that I was doing something from time to time that made my PD better, and then without knowing what I was doing it somehow made my PD worse. I speculated that the and most variable activity I did in a day was to eat. This lead to my study and research of how my daily diet could possibly affect my Peyronie’s disease fibrous tissue. It was not difficult to see a very strong and obvious correlation between certain kinds of foods and how my PD scar and my penis would directly respond to my diet. All of this information and the ideas are in my book, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” at http://peyronies-disease-help.com/product/peyronies-disease-handbook/ TRH

  63. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Eddie,

    Sorry to hear about your Peyronie’s disease.

    During the first year of having Peyronie’s disease it is common for the condition to worsen; scars enlarge, bent penis is worse, erection quality deteriorates, etc. This is why the MDs don’t do much during this time because they want to see if the condition will self-heal (as 50% of cases of Peyronie’s disease go away on their won without any outside assistance), or if it persist without self-healing and how bad will it be.

    To answer your questions:

    a) Sexual abstinence will not directly or specifically make the Peyronie’s disease go away. But sexual abuse and rough sex, or further sexual accidents if you already have Peyronie’s disease, will make the condition worse and will prevent the body from self-healing due to the re-injury or additional physical stresses you apply. But reasonable, safe and gentle sexual activity, conducted so that no additional injury can occur, can increase the local blood circulation and therefore help the healing process. So, gentle and easy sex is good, crazy and careless sex is bad. Got it?

    b) Viagra, Cialis and other PDE5 drugs that chemically stimulate an artificial erection can cause a lot of problems for a man who already has Peyronie’s disease. These drugs over time can cause unusually large and prolonged erections that can damage the already damaged internal tissue of the penis. It would be like if you have a car tire that is built to carry 32 PSI, but you over-inflate it to 200 PSI; it can damage the substance of the tire and cause a blowout. If something like that happens in a penis it can cause Peyronie’s disease or worsen a case if you already have the problem. I have received countless stories of men getting a “monster erection” and then shortly afterward developing PD. It can and does happen. The medical profession turns a blind eye to it because who is seriously going to tell a man not to use Viagra?

    I hope this helps you. You should look around the PDI website for ways to use Alt Med that can help your body heal Peyronie’s disease. TRH

  64. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Mick,

    You are one of the rare lucky ones who has a case of Peyronie’s disease that has not ruined your sex life. I have heard of guys like you: Your bent penis is not too bad, and your wife can accommodate your curve.

    Most of the guys I work with who have Peyronie’s disease cannot get an erection any more, or their erections are so weak that they are useless for entry; their ED is so bad from the Peyronie’s disease scar that they cannot enter. And most of the guys with PD have curves and bends that are so bad that their partners cannot receive the penis if they can get an erection.

    True, panic at the early stages is unnecessary. But please do not flaunt your good fortune, or make light of how serious this problem can be, in the face of men who have not been as lucky as you. Peyronie’s disease is something to be taken seriously especially in the early stages when Alt Med can be used to speed up and encourage the natural healing process. TRH

  65. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Lorenzo,

    Based on the information you supplied it sounds like you do not have Peyronie’s disease, but you have a normally curved penis that is fully functional and pain-free.

    Most women are good souls who are more mature and sophisticated than men when it comes to sexual topics. Most women do not care if a penis is not straight, so long as the man who is attached to it loves them and is a good man. In this way, women are better people than men.

    So, I come back to your question, and ask what exactly do you want to treat and why? There is no good MD or surgeon who will try to change your penis; there are no accepted treatments to alter a penis that is cosmetically curved. If you find an MD who wants to do something to “help” you, please run away from him. If your lady is not making a big deal of your penis, why are you? Be happy and grateful for your woman and for your normally curved but fully functional and pain-free penis. Any man with Peyronie’s disease would trade places with you in a second. TRH

  66. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Rebecca,

    First thing to do is to find out for sure if it is Peyronie’s disease or not. No need to be worried is it is not Peyronie’s disease and just a normally bent penis. After that the doctor can explain what might be the best course for him. TRH

  67. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Ian,

    Yes, based on your description and the fact you are taking heart medication you could have Peyronie’s disease. If it is Peyronie’s disease you must meet it head on; avoiding it will only allow the situation to worsen and for it to affect your life even more adversely than it has already. Please spend some time on the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website learning how this problem can be treated with Alt Med to help your body eliminate or reduce it. Good luck to you. TRH

    Two questions about Peyronie’s disease and Viagra use.

    If i just use 25mg of Viagra, instead of l00mg, will that send less blood to my penis so that i dont have to worry about doing any further damage to my penis? I have had Peyronie’s disease for over 15 years with a slight curve and no problem with sex. I am 72 still can get an erection, but does not last longer than ten minutes. Once in awhile i cant get an erection.

    Will Viagra cause priaspiam for someone who has Peyronie’s disease?

  69. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Jim,

    I am comfortable offering ideas and suggestions about Alt Med treatment of Peyronie’s disease. But I do not offer an opinion or advice about Viagra dosages or how to use any drugs; that would be wrong for me to comment and illegal, to boot. However, I think you might be on to something here, with your idea to weaken the Viagra dosage in order to weaken the erectile response in an effort to minimize or eliminate an damage to the penile tissue caused by an excessive Viagra-induced erection. You really should talk to the doctor who prescribed your Viagra or who is treating your Peyronie’s disease to learn how low your dosage can go to still remain effective in producing an erection.

    Priapism is a condition considered to be a medical emergency. Priapism is as an erection that continues for longer than four hours (some say six hours is the limit), in the absence of physical and psychological stimulation. Viagra can cause priapism in rare cases, but when it does the presence or absence of Peyronie’s disease is not a factor. If anything Peyronie’s disease might make priapism less likely to occur since PD most commonly causes erectile dysfunction (ED, or partial or total lack of erectile ability) due to the presence of the Peyronie’s disease fibrous scar material that keeps the penis veins open so the back-pressure cannot develop to create an erection.

    I still suggest that you are taking a chance playing with fire by using Viagra. You are a very lucky guy who, at the age of 72 with a 15 year history of Peyronie’s disease, can still engage in intercourse; it is always possible to make a bad situation worse. Most PD men would be very happy with what you have and not press their luck with Viagra.

    Good Questions. Thanks. TRH

    I think I might have Peyronie’s disease. About a week ago I noticed that my penile raphe have shifted to the left from the tip of the penis and goes down the scrotum when my penis is flaccid I can see the penile raphe in an “S” shape. When am erceted my penis turns to the the left side which has never happpened to me before. It have made me feel uncomfortable that something bad is going to happen, like Peyronie’s disease. Can someone tell me something please.

  71. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Jojo,

    For those wondering about the penile raphe, an explanation: The penile raphe is a line or ridge of tissue that is visible on both men and women that extends from the anus through the perineum or pelvic region that includes the sex organs. It is the structure that remains after embryonic development when two large masses of tissue, called the urogenital fold, in the lower pelvis unite or fuse along the midline. In men the urogenital raphe runs from the midline of the scrotum (scrotal raphe) and upwards through the midline undersurface of the penis (penile raphe). It is usually a slightly darker colored skin than the rest of the tissue around it, in some people it is more raised than others, and it typically is rather straight.

    I assume you noticed you penile raphe was straight before and it is not straight now. This might indicate the presence of a Peyronie’s disease mass of fibrous tissue that is bringing it over from its normal midline location. But it could also be caused by other things going on down there. You did not mention other of the common Peyronie’s disease indicators (pain, reduced erection quality, reduced penis size, presence of an unusual lump or nodule under the skin of the penis) that would confirm PD. Lastly, since the Peyronie’s disease fibrous tissue is most often located on the top or sides of the penis, raphe involvement on the bottom of the penis is not common. I suggest you go to your doctor for an examination to determine if you have Peyronie’s disease or some other possible cause of this misplaced penile raphe. TRH

  72. Peter says:

    I developed Peyronie’s disease several years ago, aged 52, researched treatments online and started taking ac grace vitamin e, vitamin c, nattokinase and serrapeptase. Before developing it I had been taking Tamsulosin for BPH. One of the Peyronie’s disease help websites stated that tamsulosin had been linked to Peyronie’s. I mentioned it to my urologist and he said he’d never heard of the connection. I didn’t want to risk it so stopped taking tamsulosin. My Peyronie’s disease continued to develop anyway.

    All his happened after I was widowed and not engaging in intercourse anyway. Eventually I had the Nesbit procedure, lost lots of length. Due to the loss of length I have since had a mini abdominoplasty to uncover more of my penis which was almost embedded when flaccid, been circumcised as I had lots of excessive foreskin and a scrotal web removal. I still have a sharp curve right beneath the glans which is putting lots of pressure on my urethra, affecting ejaculation. I don’t know whether I should try and have this problem surgically corrected.

    The rim of my glans is pressed into my shaft due to the sharp upward bend, this causes a great loss of sensation and in the area of the bend my penis is quite numb. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    All this couldn’t have done at a worse time. I’m 56, widowed and hoping to start again with relationships. My penis is tiny now compared to before. My erections are very firm in the shaft but the glans stays very soft. I don’t know if this is because of the sharp upward bend. It’s very disheartening. I know that sex isn’t everything but it’s important to me and most men I would imagine. Recently I was put back on tamsulosin due to worsening BPH.

    I’m hoping the Peyronie’s disease doesn’t worsen. That would be the last straw.

  73. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Peter,

    There is not a lot of information connecting tamsulosin (Flomax) to Peyronie’s disease, but it does exist. Information about problematic drugs and their side effects start out slowly, but eventually become well known. Perhaps we are just seeing early evidence connecting tamsulosin with Peyronie’s disease. If you are confident you had no other event or reason that might have caused your Peyronie’s disease, other than your use of tamsulosin, then that might be your answer.

    One of the known side effects of tamsulosin is abnormal ejaculation. Since you mentioned that as a problem you were having I thought it important to report it to you.

    Penile surgery will likely result in scar formation, since you already have Peyronie’s disease and have proven that your body is capable of excessive penile scar formation. You might want to keep this in mind when contemplating more surgery.

    Your current penile numbness might be due to your several pelvic surgeries; numbness is not at all common in Peyronie’s disease. Surgery has many unintended consequences. This is yet another point to consider when contemplating more surgery.

    You might want to talk to your physician about changing your prescription to something not possibly related to Peyronie’s disease. TRH
