Getting help with a congenital penis curvature

Hi Dr. Herazy,

I'm using the DMSO, Super CP serum and Nattokinase for congenital curvature with some success however the skin on the penis is becoming extremely wrinkled. I also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome so my skin is more elastic than the average person.

I'm assuming this is due to the damage DMSO is causing to the epidermis.  Is there anyway to counteract this and when I stop using the products will the skin return to normal? At present I'm using several drops twice daily.

Kind regards,

Shamus

Greetings Shamus,

Congratulations on making improvement with the congenital curved penis problem.  Many people say it cannot be done, but we know that these things do improve when you do it correctly.

Well, first of all, for those who are not familiar with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, allow me to say briefly that it is a congeniral disorder in which loose joints, scoliosis (spinal curvature),  easy bruising and sprained joints are common, along with skin that more stretchy or lax than normal, and a general weakness of most tissues.  For this reason I am not surprised that you might also develop Peyronie's disease along the way, since the underlying abnormality of this problem is thought to be an inherited weakness or abnormality of tissue collagen, which is glue that holds tissue cells together.

You are the first person in over 10 years of doing this work who has reported that the skin has wrinkled after using DMSO and you are the first person who has used it who also has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.  There is a correlation.   No one else has ever reported this kind of response from DMSO.  

DMSO would not affect normal skin in the way that your skin is affected.   You must know by now that your situation is unusual and that you are not going to respond like other people to this simple DMSO therapy.  Typically when DMSO is applied to normal skin it will bring the normal oil that is located on the skin surface and bring that oil down into the deeper strata of the epidermis; this causes normal skin to sometimes become dry and itchy and not much else.  Simply reducing the frequency of DMSO application is all that is necessary to correct the dry and itchy skin response.

I would assume – and I stress, assume – that your skin is reacting in the same way and only becoming wrinkled by the lack of oil since DMSO is stripping from the surface and taking it deeper into the tissue.  But, then again, even on a good day your skin looks and feels different than other people since it tends to be super-soft and smooth compared to most everyone else.

I ask that you please go to your specialist who you are seeing about your Ehlers-Danlos syndrome for an expert opinion.    Please follow your treating doctors recommendation, and pose these same questions.  Please let me know what you learn.  TRH

Can my congenital penis curvature be fixed by surgery or is there some other way to get help?

Hello Dr Herazy I am 34 years old and my penis bends down and left like a hook I have really hard erections and was wondering what can be done I don't think I have a plaque I have had this all my life . When my penis is flaccid if I stretch it out I can feel my left corpora cavernosa like a tight string and the right loose. Can I be fixed by surgery ? Thank you for your time.

Greetings,

Of course, I cannot answer you in any direct or meaningful way since I have not examined your curved penis.

Your question has been asked and answered several times.  Please review the post Questions about straightening a congenital penis curvature and Stretching a congenital penis curvature. There are several other posts on this topic, all you have to do is enter “congenital penis curvature” in the search box and read all that comes up.

In doing this work this 2002 I have been surprised that many men report back to me that they have used the PDI gentle manual penis stretching method with success.   It is always used in conjunction with a variety of other therapies for best results.  I am not saying to forgo penis surgery, but if you do that as a first method of correction there is absolutely no way to undo bad results. (Surgery to correct bad surgery usually results in in worse results.)   I suggest to anyone that usually the best results occur while using conservative measures first, since there are little to no adverse consequences; if they are not effective you can always try more aggressive methods later.  TRH

Did my Peyronie's disease or curved penis begin because of always using the same hand while masturbating?

Dr. Herazy,

I have a personal interest in Peyronie's disease. At about 70 years of age I developed what was diagnosed as a true case of Peyronies. Prior to that I had no particular problem having multiple partners and three wives resulting in four offspring. The true signs of Peyronies were of rather rapid onset, over a period of a few months. My Urologist suggested Topical application of Verapamil cream which I used for approximately six months to no avail. I experienced no pain and my wife and I continued to have pleasurable sexual experiences.

The architecture of my penis varied over a period of time. It was and is noticeably curved to the left. The Glans was small but has subsequently achieved normal architecture The curvature and a shortening of two inches prevails. (From a true 6″ to about 4).

I am now 81 years and seldom achieve orgasm and then only after prolonged oral and manual stimulation with adequate lubrication.

However my question and interest is regarding the “natural” curvature of the penis. I started masturbation at age 13 and as I recall my underdeveloped penis was relatively straight. However as length and maturity developed a definite but slight (10 Deg.) curvature to the left seemed to develop. This conformed to the natural curvature of my right hand which was the one used to masturbate. This continued until my full adult development and remained so for many years. Other than a marked curvature the symptoms presented no problems.

My thesis is that as the penis develops during adolescence the bend will be the result of the constant “abuse” of the organ. A nurse friend and lover of mine used to joke she could tell the left handed males from the right by the deviation of the penis. I have observed many males with straight penises and I am sure their masturbating habits were as common as mine.

Do you think that this may lead to Peyronies later in life. Review of the literature reveals little information specifically relating to this issue.

Sincerely,

C. A. H. DDS MS

Greetings Doctor,

You are correct, there is no specific reference in the literature in regard to this particular, and somewhat common, question about repeated masturbation altering the shape of the penile shaft to conform to the hand that is habitually used.

I believe the reason there is so little interest to investigate this idea is that it is rather implausible and has no evidence of occurrence in related or similar scenarios. By this I mean if we take an approximately similar situation of a 13 year old boy who does something with approximately the same level of frequency or habituation as you or the average boy would masturbate, I cannot think of one example in which the body would be deformed or adapt to the repeated physical contact he would experience.

write an assignment

Giving this a few minutes thought, it seems to me that the best general area in which to explore or consider something like what you are suggesting would be in the area of sports or farm work, since it is common for 13 year old boys to be so engaged and to continue to be engaged in sport and farm work activities for many years thereafter.  Not only would the sport or farm activity start at this early age, and continue for many years subsequently, but it would typically be performed at a frequency similar or greater than such a boy would masturbate. For example, a 13 year old boy growing up on a dairy farm would be obligated to milk cows twice a day, pitch hay daily, scoop manure several times a week and many other repetitious and physically demanding duties that significantly impact his developing body. Yet, no deformity of the hands or upper body develops as a result of his work other than the development of callus tissue on the hands which is only temporary.

History does not report that when children during the Industrial Revolution were put into servitude at the age of 5 or 6 to work 10 hours a day 6 days a week in factories and coal mines , that their bodies were in anyway significantly or predictably misshapen by rigorous and repeated contact with machines or the tools they used.

Come to think of it, I have worn a belt snugly around my waist since at least five years of age or earlier yet I do not have an indentation to conform to 8-12 hours of compression from a belt over a life time – and I am 67 years of age.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I think you have made the case that handedness while masturbating does not lead to any particular curved penis pattern.  You wrote that many men have straight penises although they were all likely to have masturbated at the same age and the same or greater frequency and gusto than what you used.   The fact that those straight penises exist tends to refute what you have proposed. 

What you ask about is a common idea, but I do not see evidence to support it.

However, what you describe in your email does sound like Peyronie's  disease.  I would suggest that the apparent injury that started your Peyronie's problem was not because of your right (or left)  hand holding your erection with any particular hand repeatedly, but from some accident that occurred while as a young man or even later in life.     TRH

I am 19 years old and I need your help with a curved penis after rough masturbation

From the time when I was 11, I used to masturbate, and several times after masturbation, I pulled my penis so hard that I heard a kind of sound from end of my penis.

Another bad habit I had was the wrong way of masturbation. I used to bring my legs closed to each other and then moving or inserting the erected penis between the two legs. After a short time I saw that my penis is curved, narrowing form its end where a kind of line like rupture and weakness is seen.

Now when I get erection, I lose it and get back soon, it can’t stand erect which makes me unable to achieve penetration. Although, I have erection, but it can not be maintained.  While having intercourse it curves down from its end I mean the place where it is weak and narrowing. And also I think I ejaculate very quickly.

What should I do? I need your help!

In our area we don’t have experienced doctors, so please help me. Now I am 19 years old, the age when I lost self-confidence and seeking for help.  I need your help, Please! Help me !!!!!!!!!

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Greetings,

Yes, you do need help.  You need more help than I can offer here to sort out what has happened to you over the years due to your rough masturbation practices.  It is fairly common for Peyronie’s disease and masturbation to be related to each other simply due to repeated injury. 

In your case, the first thing you need to do is to get a complete urological examination even if you have to go outside your area, so you and I can both be certain you have Peyronies.   If you have not told your parents, or an adult in your family, about your problem you should do so now if you can do so comfortably and without concern for reprisal.

If you feel embarrassed talking to a family member about what is going on with you, then simply tell them, “I have pain in my private parts and I do not know why.”  That story will protect your privacy, make you feel comfortable that you are not saying more than you want to say, yet it will also let an adult know you re in trouble and need medical care.   If that adult wants to go into the exam room just tell them that you feel embarrassed and that you would prefer to go in alone. Once you get to the doctors office you can get a lot more specific and accurate so the doctor will know what to do with you.

There are very strict HIPPA laws in place today that will protect your privacy as an adult. This way no one from the family needs to know what is going on, but you can get the diagnosis you need.

You may or may not have Peyronie’s disease.  I cannot tell you what is going on from the limited information you provided.

If it turns out that you do have Peyronie’s disease you must keep in mind that many boys and men have made the same mistake you have made by masturbating too aggressively; you are not alone in this problem.  You need to learn how to achieve orgasm while using gentle and pleasant self stimulation. If you need help along this line, please let me know and I will guide you to appropriate resources.

Let me know how it goes for you.  If your parents want to use Alternative Medicine to treat your problem, contact me again and we can work together.  TRH

My husband has a curved penis, is this normal?

 Bent penis usually means Peyronie’s disease later in life

A curved penis can be normal for some men, or it can indicate the presence of a problem for other men.  Just because the penis is curved does not necessarily mean there is a problem.

For the most part, the fact that penile curvature exists at all in a man does not indicate a true abnormality or reason for concern; an abnormality is more so suggested if there is a change in the appearance and structure of the penis if it was previously straighter than it is now and only later became curved.

If a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease has already been made to explain the bent penis you are asking about, you should consider using Alternative Medicine treatment to assist and support the body’s natural ability to heal and repair the Peyronie’s plaque that causes the curved penis and the various signs and symptoms that are a result.  Click here to find a good place to start learning about non-surgical and non-drug Peyronie’s treatment.

When did the bent penis begin?

Usually the answer to the question, “When did the curved or bent penis begin?” will usually indicate if there is an actual problem to justify concern.

If your husband’s penis has been curved since childhood, or for as long as he can remember, then there is a very good chance that he has a normal variation of the shape of his penis.  This is called a normal penis curvature and is often simply due to a variation of the size of the internal chambers that make up the body of the penis.   In a congenital curve of the penis there is usually no pain associated with erection or intercourse.

Also, in regard to when the penis curvature occurred, it is not uncommon for Peyronie’s disease to develop after certain medical procedures or treatments:

  1. Use of Viagra, Cialis or Levitra (PDE5 inhibitor drugs) that have been known to cause damage to the internal tissue of the penis when an exaggerated or excessive erection occurs.  For some men this can happen after just one use of these drugs, or for other men after multiple uses that previously did not cause any unusual reaction.
  2. Use of beta-blocker heart medications that are used for chest pain and arrhythmia to name a few.  There are many beta-blockers used, but a few of the more popular are Lopressor LA, Sectral and Tenormin
  3. Use of some cholesterol lowering drugs (statin drug group) that have a long list of known side effects, but recently have been expanded to include Peyronie’s disease.  There are statin drugs in this category, but a few of the more popular are Crestor, Lipitor, Lisinopril and Lovastatin
  4. Having been catheterized as part of surgical procedure, especially when done while under anesthesia while in a hospital setting.  Many times greater force is used to pass the catheter tube through the urethra due to time constraints and urgency, resulting trauma to the penile tissue.

If your husband’s penis curvature started recently or sometime after his teen years when it had been previously straight, then this suggests a problem for which he should make an appointment with a urologist for an examination and diagnosis.  The most common cause of a curved penis that appears after it was previously straight, by far, is Peyronie’s disease.  Other less common causes can be:

  1. Trauma to the penis that causes simple swelling
  2. Trauma that causes penile fracture
  3. Penile cancer, although very rare

Diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease and the curved penis 

Typically, in cases of an adult onset curved penis, there are three primary findings that usually have to be met in order to establish a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease:

1.    Presence of one or more nodules or areas of hardness located under the skin of the shaft.  These localized nodules are not seen on the surface, but a felt by digital examination below the skin; some can be so large that the surface of the skin is elevated from below by the nodule.

2.    Pain, from mild to severe, from occasional to constant, in some area of the penis while erect.  A small percentage of men experience penile pain while flaccid (non-erect), and an even smaller percentage experience pain during both states.

3.    Recent development of curved or bent penis, or some other similar distortion of the penis (bottleneck, hourglass, or indentation). 

A diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease can still be made without one of the above findings, if the other two are dominant and reliable.  Other findings of slightly less frequency and less importance seen during Peyronie’s disease, that are of some value in making a diagnosis  are:

  1. Loss of penis size in terms length and circumference (girth or diameter).
  2. Reduced erectile ability in either the entire shaft or a localized area of it.

The important thing is to not ignore the penile curvature and to do whatever you can to avoid Peyronie’s surgery whenever possible since the side effects can be devastating.

Can weight lifting or masturbation cause Peyronie’s disease?

Dr. Herazy,

A few months ago I noticed a slight curve/tilt in my penis to the left side. I figured it was due to the way I lay when I sleep, and I thought it would go away soon. But, now, it's months later and it hasn't gone away, and I'd say it's gotten a little worse. I'm thinking it's Peyronies Disease, but I'm not sure. I seem to have most of the symptoms: one part of my penis looks like it's pinched, there's an area of inflamed skin on the underside of it, and there's the curvature I mentioned. However, there's no pain (except lately I feel a very minor, dull pain near the inflamed area after ejaculating which lasts for a few minutes, and the curvature also gets worse for a few hours after ejaculating), and the curvature is only maybe 30 degrees to the left at its worst.

Considering there's no significant pain, and considering the curved penis isn't too major and my penis still works just as fine as it did before, is there a chance that it's maybe not Peyronie's Disease? Or maybe a mild form of it? I'm convinced it's from rough masturbation, and if it is, is it possible I can cure it naturally by maybe stopping masturbation and being more careful from now on?

The curvature seemed to show up overnight, but I recently remembered that I noticed the "pinched" area maybe a few months before the curve showed up. So, it seems that this happened gradually (if that makes a difference at all). I also realized that I started lifting weights around the time I noticed the pinch effect, and as I've continued to lift weights it seems like I'm seeing more and more symptoms of Peyronie's Disease. (I haven't physically damaged my penis with weight equipment at all, but I'm wondering if maybe the strain from lifting is stressing my tissue? Could that be a cause?)

Thank you very much, Dr. Herazy, and I'm really hoping I can fix this problem with your advice.


Greetings, 

My first advice is to stop guessing and wondering, and make an appointment with a local urologist to have your problem formally diagnosed.  The tissue inflammation and pain after ejaculation are not typical of Peyronie's disease and could indicate other problems. 

Lastly, the strain of weight lifting would not cause Peyronie's disease; if you have it, rough masturbation is much more likely a cause.  Please review the article in the PDI website, Peyronie's disease and masturbation.

If your condition is diagnosed as Peyronies then I suggest you consider putting yourself on a treatment plan to increase your natural ability to reduce and eliminate the foreign fibrous tissue of the PD plaque. Let me know if I can help you in any way.  TRH 

Can I cause more damage to my Peyronie’s disease due to difficult penetration during sex because of a partial erection?

Hi Dr. Herazy,

I started having some pain with erections about March 2012, seen family doctor, asked if penis was bent and when I self examined, and yes it was. He then told me I had Peyronie's Disease. I had about 30 degree bend to left and could still enjoy sex. Most pain has subsided, but about 2 weeks ago, found I could not make penetration with my wife. Upon self exam, I see I am not getting full erection, top of penis is soft while base is erect. I gather there must now be full blockage to the end of penis? I am thinking of trying your medium treatment plan. Also, can I do more damage if I try again with my wife? I was also thinking of trying CyberSkin Transformer, would that help? Like every other guy, this is a huge blow to me.

Thanks!

 

Greetings,

Your assumption that your poor erection quality is due to a "full blockage to the end of the penis" is not correct.  Actually, the opposite is probably true.

In Peyronie's disease the reduction of erection strength is typically due to the Peyronie plaque preventing the closure of valves in the penis veins.  When these valves cannot close the blood that is normally circulating within the penis simply is not trapped and collected to create the hydraulic effect known as a erection.  Imagine what would happen if you attempted to blow up a balloon that had the other end cut off.  Any amount of air you would blow into the balloon would not be trapped inside and the balloon would not swell and become firm with increased internal pressure caused by air being collected in an enclosed space.  To say it another way, if you try to warm up your bathroom in the winter you must close the door so the heated air can collect inside the enclosed space.  Opening the door allows the heated air to escape.  In the soft area of your penis the blood is not being trapped because the scar prevents closure of the valves that trap blood.  Your blood circulation in the penis is probably as good and uninterrupted as it has ever been, it is just not being collected to create the hydraulic pressure a good erection requires. 

What is probably happening in your situation is that the fibrous material related to your Peyronie's disease has advanced now to the point that the internal Peyronie's scar or plaque material is getting larger and reducing the ability of the valves to close to trap blood and create a complete and normal erection.  The solution involves reducing the size of scar, or even eliminating it.  That is where the PDI treatment plans come in to help you heal them as they normally are healed in about half of the cases.  The medium plan is a popular way to get started with Peyronies treatment.     

Sexual penetration with a partial erection can be difficult and dangerous.  It is dangerous in the sense that a partial erection can suddenly bend and buckle during intercourse and this can result in further damage to the tunica albuginea and make your PD worse than it is now.  I suggest that you get the 2nd book I wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex" that will explain in great detail how you can maintain your sexual activity in spite of having PD.  It is a great book that has helped many couples in this vital area of life.  

The Cyberskin Transformer series of products are effective in providing additional support to the penis to reduce – but not totally eliminate – the possibility of sudden bending during sexual activity that can further injure the penis.  There are other products as well that PDI has available for this purpose like the Girth Prosthetic Rings, Invisi-rider Enhancer and the Reversible Sleeve.  All of these can be found at the sex supports/aids section of the PDI store front.

Peyronie's disease can be a tremendous personal stress to everyone who is in a relationship who has to deal with the outlandish physical changes that can happen to a penis.   The important thing is that you work to do all you can to reduce those changes by increasing and supporting the natural ability of your body to eliminate the internal fibrous scar tissue that causes the curved penis and weak erections of Peyronie's disease. Please let me know if I can help you in any way to correct your problem to the greatest extent possible.   TRH   

Is a penis extender the wrong thing to use for Peyronies?

Hi Dr.

I got Peyronie's disease about 5 years ago through intercourse with my wife. I saw an urologist who prescribed a 3 month dose of pills which failed to do anything so we tried it again. I was then told I could have surgery which made me go into denial. The curve has got worse over the last 2 years and I’m worried about having sex so it's become non existent between the two of us. I am now desperate and have been looking at the penis extender for Peyronies – is this a possible method along with your treatments, or is this the wrong move. I'd like to get started in the right direction.

Thanks R


Greetings R,

You need to do a little bit of reading.  There are many articles and posts I have written about using a mechanical penis stretcher, commonly called a penis extender.  Here are a few links for you to read: Penis stretcher:  Big problem as Peyronies treatment and Penis extender claims and Peyronie's disease and Peyronies treatment and the penis stretcher.

Peyronie's surgery is always something that is proposed when other medical treatment eventually fails.  I would caution you to consider that if your penis has already demonstrated the ability to develop too much scar after a small injury, there is a stronger possibility of an even greater amount of scar occurring as a result of the surgical incisions associated with common penis surgery techniques.  This is the reason that men find their PD worse after having surgery to correct their curved penis.     

From my experience many couples who live with Peyronie's disease in their lives will limit or stop sexual intimacy when it is not necessary to do so.  The problem often is that their medical doctor does not know about or does not take time time to explain, some basic information that would enable a couple to safely engage in intercourse.  I can assure you that within a brief time you would feel a lot more comfortable about resuming sexual relations once a few things have been explained to you. My wife, who is an RN, and I have counseled with many hundreds of couples and helped them to regain that part of their lives by simply sharing some simple information. Contact me if you are interested in learning more.  Additionally, you can get a book that wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex" from the PDI website.       

Getting Peyronie's treatment started in the right direction is easy if you are prepared to spend some time educating yourself on the PDI about Alternative Medicine methods to increase your ability to remove the PD scar naturally.  I did it, and I get emails every week from men who are doing it.  I have come to realize that when the average man even after five years of dealing with Peyronies if he uses a large and diverse program of care and works aggressively will see positive change in 2-4 months in about 80% of cases.

Let me know if I can help you in any way to get your life together.  TRH

Will this surgery work to correct my Peyronie’s disease?

I have peyronies a year and a half now with a 45 degree bend when erect.i have consulted my doctor.i have seen a surgeon and I am not satisfied with his straightening method.he just wants to put a slit in it and sew it back.i don't believe this would would work.i need a second opinion.i am on medical card and live in county roscommon in the west region of Ireland. i need a surgeon who is prepared to carry out the full and proper treatment I would be very thankful for your assistance doctor and advice.i am only 39 and this is ruining my relationships and I am depressed. please help me.


Greetings,

Are you sure you heard and understood everything that was told to you about this penis surgery?

I cannot directly comment about what your surgeon explained about the Peyronie's surgery he or she proposed because I was not there to hear the explanation you were given, and you were. However, as I understand penis surgery to correct a penile curvature caused by PD, the typical procedure is much more complex than simply putting a slit in the shaft and closing it up.  

If you are positive you were given this exact explanation, I suggest you contact another urology surgeon who will take your case more seriously for a second opinion.  Using the information that follows I propose that this next time around you be prepared to ask many questions and demand answers.  You should fully understand what is being proposed to you so you can make an intelligent and informed decision.  I also suggest that you spend some time on the Peyronie's Disease Institute website to learn about the possibility of using non-drug and non-surgical treatment to increase your ability to eliminate the Peyronie's plaque naturally.

I am sensitive to what you are asking and I understand your concern about penis surgery.  However, I have no way to know what is the full and proper surgical treatment for your particular problem, and frankly neither do you.  Something as vitally important and final as surgery requires a great deal of trust in the skill and competence of the surgeon in an area that a layperson does not have enough knowledge or skill to judge what needs to be done. Having said that, I think you might be correct to want to talk to another surgeon if only because it is not correct or proper that you were allowed to leave that office without a better understanding of the proposed surgery.  In my opinion, a half-hearted explanation is no explanation, and does not bode well for the kind of surgery that a doctor like that would provide.

There is always the possibility you misunderstood what was explained to you, but it is still the responsibility of the doctor to make sure you do fully understand so you can give informed consent to a surgical procedure.  There is also the possibility the doctor did not want to give you all the (somewhat gruesome) details of the surgery, since it might scare off someone with a squeamish stomach. Another possibility is that the doctor simply did not want to take the time from a busy office schedule to explain what would happen in the proposed surgery.  It has been my observation that many times a surgeon will greatly limit or modify the truth about some aspect of a proposed surgery (risks, chances for recurrence, changes for failure, degree or frequency of complications or side effects) so that the patient is more inclined to accept the idea of the surgery, and agree to have the surgery done.  It is somewhat of a "selling job" that is done.  It is not appropriate, it is not correct, and it is not legal, but it is done.  Perhaps something like this happened in your case.  Whatever was the reason that you thought the doctor was going to "put a slit in it and sew it back," it is the fault of the doctor for that notion and possible misunderstanding to remain.

More than likely, and I could be completely wrong since I was not there, the doctor proposed to do a Nesbit procedure for your curved penis.

For the most men the Nesbit procedure is the most common, easiest and most direct way that a surgeon can address the penile curvature of  Peyronie’s disease. However, it causes shortening of the erect penis by 2.5 to 6 cm (one to two and a half inches), and this is the greatest drawback of it.  The operation is performed under a general anesthetic and takes 40 to 60 minutes.  Men usually go home the day after surgery, or even the same day.

Basically, in the Nesbit operation the main idea is to make an elliptical incision to remove some of the shaft tissue and tunica albuginea from the long side of the bent penis (on the side opposite the inner curve of the bend), in an effort to straighten the curvature.  This tissue removal is responsible for the overall effect of penis shortening when the long side is reduced. The rule of thumb is that for every 25-30 degree of curvature that is present, a loss of approximately 1 to 1.5cm penis (about half to one inch) length at erection will occur.

An incision is made all the way around the shaft, a few millimeters behind the edge of the head (glans) of the penis.  The cut skin of the penis is rolled back down (like rolling or peeling your socks down off your leg), exposing the two corpora cavernosae so the one corpora cavernosa that is opposite the bend and the Peyronie's plaque can be shortened.  This is done by either removing tissue of the corpora with removal using an elliptical incision or simply by drawing it tighter with internal stitches.  After this is done the foreskin usually has to be shortened also so that it matches the new shorter length of the penis.  As in any operation, infection of the incision lines can be a problem and the foreskin, if left behind, sometimes becomes swollen after surgery; for this reason many surgeons will also perform a complete circumcision to prevent this complication. Otherwise direct surgical complications are not common, but occasional to infrequent side effects after surgery of erectile dysfunction, permanent numbness and penile pain can occur.

Hopefully, this explanation of the Nesbit procedure is helpful.  Keep in mind that this is the simplest Peyronie's surgery.  You can see Peyronie's surgery is a lot more complex than what you thought.  TRH

Is my curved penis since 10 years of age a congenital curved penis?

Good Day! I really don't what to do with my problem I have a curved penis and it really embarrass me for myself. My penis started to curved when I was in grade 5(10 yrs old) and years passes by my penis curved so badly, it curved to the left side about 35 degrees. This causes me big problems. I lost my confidence to continue my life. I always think about it how am i suppose to do to solve this problem. I've read lots of comments from different blog sites about curved penis but not like them, the curve of their penis are upward and downward. I always exercise my penis hoping to make it straight but sadly nothing change.

Our family are not fortune to give me money for a checkup. They don't know about this. I really don't want them to know, no one knows that I have a curved penis except my 2 ex-girlfriend. It's so embarrassing. I don't want to be like this forever. I send this message to this website hoping for a help. I am dying for help if there someone could help me please I'm begging.

Thank you. I apologize for my English grammar, I'm not that good in English.

God bless.


Greetings,

You use very good English. You should be proud of your ability.

There is a good possibility that your penis curvature is how you were born, meaning it is normal and natural for you to have a curved penis. It could be the way you were made. The term for this natural development is that the problem is a congenital penis curvature, meaning it is from birth. I suggest that you should go to a doctor to learn if you have Peyronie's disease in case this is what is wrong with you. It is your decision. If it is a natural curve you were born with there could be limited ability to make any change. I have no way to know ahead of time how you might respond.

However, I have heard from men who also had a congenital curve of the penis and were able to make small to medium changes in it using the PDI gentle manual penis stretching technique. This method was designed and researched as a way to assist reversal of different penis deformities associated with Peyronie's disease, and was not intended to be used to correct natural penis variations. Even so, it seems to work in some cases, depending on how it is done and if supporting therapy is used to stretch the soft tissue of the shaft.

The men how have used the PDI gentle manual penis stretching technique, also used Neprinol three times a day to assist this process. I would suggest you consider a brief trial of treatment for three months to see if you might respond. If you are interested in experimenting a bit in this way I can assist you. Please contact me again and I can give you the necessary information to get started. TRH
