Hi, I'm twenty four and I think I got Peyronie's disease from an accident when I was in my early teens. It is naturally the most annoying thing I have to deal with. How do I find my Peyronies scar? Also, the medications and vitamins you are selling, how often would one need to replenish the stock?
Knowing where your scar is located – although not always easy or obvious – is essential to Peyronie's treatment. Knowing your scar location and how to accurately describe it is not a matter of curiosity; you MUST know about the scar in as great detail as possible in order to know if you are making actual progress or not with your Alternative Medicine treatment. If you do not know this, then you are guessing.
Before I go into this subject in some detail, I must remind you that the PD scar is best located while the penis is soft or flaccid – meaning not erect. This will be true 99% of the time, so don’t bother to look unless you are flaccid. Also, it is important to know your scar is not located on the surface; it is located below the surface and cannot be seen. Lastly, as a general statement the major scar you have that is causing a penile distortion will be found on the concave side of that distortion, usually at the lowest point of that concavity.
This problem of being unable to locate the PD scar is so common I wrote a blog post titled, "Can't find Peyronie's plaque or scar." Check it out for more help.
PD “scars” or plaques are quiet variable. Some men have an obvious scar and others could not find one if their life depended on it. Often, when a scar is not found, but there is still pain and bending or any kind of recent penile distortion, a diagnosis of PD can still be made. This is so, because the scar that is causing the pain or bending is either:
1. So small – it cannot be found
2. So very soft – it blends into the other tissue and cannot be detected
3. So deep – it cannot be reached or felt easily
4. So large and flat – that the edges are not easily determined, almost like trying to find the edge of a roll of plastic wrap. When it is a large scar – as many of them are – it is something that is so close to you that you do not see it because you are looking far away and cannot see what is under your nose
5. So greatly different than what you think it is going to feel like that you miss it only because it does not meet your image of what it will be like
6. The doctor’s lack of ability, experience or concern when he does the scar examination – that he simply misses what is actually there if he was better at this kind of thing – yes, I know, it is difficult to imagine but it is true.
Usually, when a scar is NEVER found it is because of a combination of two or more of these factors – deep and small, or soft, large and flat, or deep, soft and doctor error, and so on. From my experience with those who have an extremely difficult time locating their scar, it seems that #4 (so large and flat) or #5 (so different than what you expect) are the reasons for failure to locate the scar. Keep this in mind when you search your landscape trying to locate the scar.
Ultimately, if you have PD you must begin the search with the attitude the scar is there, and it is only waiting to be found. Do not start with a negative attitude; you want to have a sense of high anticipation that it will be found within the next few seconds – this will help keep your senses alert. You should use as many different tactics as you can to find your scar(s) because having a good knowledge of your scar situation will help your treatment effort.
Hint: Try to think in terms of your scar being much larger than you have previously imagined. Allow yourself to mentally expand the size of the scar you are looking for. Meaning, if you were looking for a “pea” before, start looking for a “peanut” size structure or even larger. This changes your methods and your outlook about what you can detect.
It seems that lately I have many men reporting that their scars are as large as the length of the shaft, and some are narrow while others are wider. Image that your scar is that large. If you are looking for a pea-sized scar it will prevent you from easily finding something much larger like a postage stamp.
Do not be discouraged if the scar you have is large since it does not seem that the size has much to do with difficulty or time required to eliminate it. Larger scars can take just as long as smaller scars to treat.
Try this: forget about finding a “scar.” Just try to find something – anything – within the mass of erectile tissue that feels unlike the other tissue. Find something that is unlike the rest of the tissue. When you find it, mark its location with a marker pen or something that will stay on the tissue for a day or two. Go back each day to that area and re-think what you are feeling. You are trying to see if it becomes easier to make sense of it. It could be that you have an unreasonable expectation of what a “scar” should feel like, and you are missing what is really rather obvious only because your expectation is wrong. Really, how could you know what a PD scar feels like if you have never had to do this before? It is a common problem.
I have worked with well over a thousand men with PD, some mild and some severe cases, some just a few months and several that were more than 10 years old. I had a pretty bad PD problem until I cured my condition using the procedures found in the book I wrote and the same Alternative Medicine ideas as on the website. You will not feel like a victim once you start working to improve your health and immune response against the presence of this foreign tissue.
There is no clear answer to your question about how often one would need to replenish the therapy that is being used. Some therapies need to be resupplied every month or so, some every three months or so, and some never need to be replenish. As a general idea about replenishing your therapy supply, the average man spends about $90-110/month replenishing his medium size PDI treatment plan. TRH

I have had a Peyronie’s disease with a slight penis curvature for some time, but seemed to notice it getting worse the last 2 years or so. I remember one time during intercourse of having severe pain. (3-4 years ago) I could not have intercourse for at least a month afterward, then the pain went away. I seen a television show where a man had the same thing happen and recieved a series of shots in the penis and a vaccuum pump he had to use for I think 8-12 months. I just went to the doctor and he is sending me to a Peyronie’s disease specialist (Urlologist?) and he advised me to take vitamin E, D, and C. I’m thinking when I was young, there was a slight curvature, but now it is almost 90 degrees. If the Peyronie’s disease scar is felt, are the shots advisable? And what do they give you in the shots? And I’m under the impression that surgery is a last ditch effort due to damage occuring? Your thoughts please. Thank you for this website.
It sounds like you have been dealing with a very slowly progressing case of Peyronie’s disease, and that you have not received much information or sex counseling from your doctors. This is typical. You should have been advised how to have gentle sex because you want to avoid any type of additional injury on top of your existing Peyronie’s disease. To have an almost 90 degree penis bend would make it difficult, but not impossible for some couples, to engage in intercourse.
Surgery is usually looked on in the medical profession as the last, but the best, solution for Peyronie’s disease. There are perhaps a few reasons why this position is taken, but I do not agree with it. I think the best solution is to first use the most conservative and safest method of treatment for any problem. In the case of Peyronie’s disease I believe it is best to attempt to do everything possible to encourage and assist a natural recovery or self-repair of the Peyronie’s disease scar tissue and thus eliminate the cause of the curvature that you have. If you look at the PDI website you will see how we suggest you use Alt Med to support the natural process of healing. Keep in mind that up to 50% of cases of Peyronie’s disease will disappear (or self heal) on their own. So all we are doing is to attempt to assist that normally occurring process that did not take place in your case. Perhaps you can do it now. I have worked with men who have had rather serious cases of Peyronie’s disease, and some of them were 12-15 years old, so this kind of thing can be done. TRH
