What does Peyronie’s disease look like? Pictures of Peyronie’s disease
Pictures of Peyronie’s disease and the classic curved penis appear at the bottom of this page. They will educate anyone interested in this terrible problem. Peyronie’s pictures are graphic full male nudity, presented for educational purposes.
Few men ever learn about problem before developing it. Even fewer know the full details of it. Men do not understand the full consequences of PD and degree of penis curvature possible, until it is too late. Thus, there is a tendency to underestimate Peyronie’s disease. Seeing pictures of Peyronie’s disease will clarify the problem.
Without fully understanding Peyronie’s disease, it is easy enough to avoid the image of their bent penis. The uninformed quickly accept the standard medical treatment to do absolutely nothing for PD in its early stages. It is easy to do nothing. They falsely assume non-treatment means Peyronie’s disease is a minor health problem. Consequently, they do not take Peyronie’s disease seriously enough. Unfortunately, this avoidance allows the PD to worsen.
Importance of pictures of Peyronie’s disease
Most cases of Peyronie’s disease start with a small penis curvature. It is easy to assume a small problem will stay “just a little curve, hardly noticeable.” For a lucky few, the distortion starts small and stays small. However, for most the curve starts small and slowly worsens, perhaps more painful, and a bigger problem in life. For 10-20% of men with PD, the curve or distortion eventually results in total loss of sexual function. At this point, most men resort to surgical correction.

Peyronie’s Pictures: an Education and Wake-Up Call
It is important to understand and verify the nature of the Peyronie’s disease problem. Men are shocked to see actual pictures of Peyronie’s disease for the first time. It can be a real wake-up call.
Do not use these Peyronie’s pictures to make a self-diagnosis. PD is more than a curved penis. Moreover, pictures cannot guide Peyronie’s disease treatment. These pictures of Peyronie’s disease should encourage prompt medical attention about any recent penis changes that might be PD. Bear in mind, every man is a unique individual with unique physical characteristics. These differences even extend to the appearance of the penis in health and disease. For this reason, do not think your penis must look like any of these to qualify for Peyronie’s disease.
Sometimes a normal penis has a curve. Not all curved penises indicate Peyronie’s disease. Therefore, only a physician can accurately diagnose this problem.
Understand what you will see
Before viewing these pictures of Peyronie’s disease, please review what causes these dramatic penile curves and distortions.
Peyronie’s disease is an exaggeration of the wound healing process. Thus, in PD it is common to find one or more flat benign (non-cancerous) fibrous plaques or scars anywhere along the shaft of the penis. Usually there are only one or two scars, but multiple scars do occur.
These scars stop full expansion of the penis during erection. Consequently, various degrees and patterns of bending and distortion result. Depending on the number, size and location of scar tissue, the penis responds in different ways.As a result, the penis can be curved, distorted, shortened, twisted, and painful, or combinations of any or all of these.
Pictures of Peyronie’s disease showing the erect penis from 5°- 45° are common and sometimes 90º or more. Sexual difficulty and impotency also range from mild to severe, depending on the degree of curved penis deformity.
Sure, the bent penis of Peyronie’s disease gets your attention. However, PD is really all about the scar below the surface. Without that scar, there is no Peyronie’s disease. For this reason, PDI puts so much attention on knowing the size, shape, density and surface features of the PD scar. It is far more important to know about your PD scar, than to take pictures of your curved penis.
