Peyronie’s pictures showing various types of curved penis deformity. Find pictures of Peyronie’s disease at the bottom of this page. Warning: Graphic male nudity.
These Peyronie’s pictures educate and instruct. Yet, by themselves they disease cannot diagnose a case of Peyronie’s disease. A curved penis does not automatically mean a man has PD. Specifically, a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease needs more clinical and medical information that just a picture of a curved penis.
People often use the internet to see Peyronie’s pictures for comparison. Or, to see how much the penis can bend. After viewing these pictures of Peyronie’s disease, you can make a decision grounded more on fact, and less on emotion.
These Peyronie’s pictures should encourage prompt medical attention. Get a doctor’s opinion about your bent penis. Not knowing is sometimes worse than knowing.
Perhaps, after viewing these Peyronie’s pictures, you will feel relieved. Hopefully, you are not as bad off as other men are. Click on, Progression of Peyronie’s Disease.
Pictures of Peyronie’s disease and the exact mechanism of penile curvature
Why Peyronie’s pictures look like this
Peyronie’s disease is an exaggeration of the healing process. More fibrous scar tissue develops under the skin than is needed to heal the injured penis. The extra scar, depending on number, size and location, can cause the penis to be slightly or severely distorted during erection.
Imagine a balloon with a small piece of tape on it. Blow up the balloon. What will happen? The balloon will bend or twist. Likewise, Peyronie’s disease causes a similar result.
Ideally, the normal penis expands and elongates evenly. This results in a straight erection. However, in Peyronie’s disease, dense fibrous scar replaces normal elastic tissue. Thus, when a man with Peyronie’s has an erection, the scar does not expand. This internal scar causes a curve or twist to develop. The curved penis can be mild to severe.
Not all Peyronie’s disease looks the same
Some bends are so mild they found only on autopsy. Others, greater than 90 degrees! The scar may range from a few millimeters, or 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. Bends greater than 90 degrees happen. As a result, they are called a “J deformity” or “cane handle.” Even so, distortion or curvature of the non-erect penis is rare.
In 10-50 percent of cases, Peyronie’s disease heals by itself. The inflammation will resolve early without causing significant or permanent bend. For most cases, the scar may create a bend or curve, dent or ding, twist, bottleneck, collar-like, hourglass-like distortion of the erect penis. In addition, it is not uncommon for the penis to twist or turn. For this reason, all Peyronie’s pictures seem to be different.
