Does this mean I have Peyronies?

In previous questions someone asked below "how do I find my PD scar?"

In your answer you stated: "…….it is important to know your scar is not located on the surface; it is located below the surface and cannot be seen……"

I have been informed that I have Peyronie's disease, however my erections are 100% straight.  They are just less flexible and half the top surface of my penis feels very hard, because of the scar tissue.  When my penis is flaccid and erect I can easily always see the scar tissue.

Does this mean I have peyronies, also does this mean the scar tissue is just below the external skin and not on the actual erectile tissue? Is this possible? I have spoken to you previously but I am not sure if I mentioned this.

 

Greetings,

If you have been medically diagnosed with Peyronie's disease, what you say does not give me reason to doubt that diagnosis.  

After reading your entire question several times I am unsure what you mean when you say "I can easily always see the scar."   If I were to try to hide a ball under the blanket on my bed, it would still be "seen" because of the way the ball would push up and distort and wrinkle the blanket.  I would not be able to see the ball directly, only able to see the effects of the ball on the blanket that is above it.  Is this what you mean when you say you can see your PD scar?

By definition the Peyronie's plaque or scar is not located on the top surface of the skin.  It is located within the layer of tissue called the tunica albuginea that is located well below the surface of the skin, by many millimeters.     The tunica albuginea is sitting right on top of and is in contact with the actual erectile tissue, making it anatomically impossible to directly see the Peyronie's scar.  

I have communicated with many men whose PD scars are so thick and dense that they distort the skin above, and thus they can see the outline of scar that lies below.  TRH

What are the best two choices to treat Peyronies?

 

Hi again.  Between PMD DMSO, Super CP Serum and Unique E oil what are the best two choices to treat Peyronies?   How do I go about using them?    Monty

Greetings Monty,

You are asking a question no one can answer.  You must apply these therapies to yourself to learn exactly which is most effective for you.  The PMD DMSO is always used because it will bring the other two deep into the tissue; therefore the choice is between the Super CP Serum and the Callisto oil.  Because of the low cost, most men use all three of these.

From your question it is obvious you are trying to approach Peyronies treatment from a minimal standpoint, and this is doomed for failure.  You must treat PD treatment aggressively and with a broad approach.   Also, using only external therapies (PMD DMSO, Super CP Serum and Unique E oil) only is also not a good idea; you must also use internal therapies (vitamin E, vitamin C, MSM, PABA, acetyl-L-carnitine, etc.). 

How any or all of them is actually used is provided when you receive your order.  You are given everything you need to be successful.  TRH

 



Does anyone know the best treatment for Peyronie’s disease?

Does anyone know the best treatment for Peyronie's disease? I want to know how do I cure myself in the fastest way I can before this problem ruins my life and pushes me over the edge.  My doctor does not seem to care at all how this problem is affecting me.  He actually told me to do nothing for six months, and then he would decide if I needed surgery. I really need to know how to get back to feeling like a normal man again.

Greetings,

Before I give you the best and most honest answer I can, I want you to know that I had Peyronie's disease and cured myself of it in 2002.   That is how this website got started and how all of this information was put together.  When I first developed Peyronies I felt really terrible inside just like all men do when they lose this part of their lives.  I know how rotten and scared you are feeling because I felt that way and so did hundreds of men I have worked with over the years.  Many of us, just like I did, were thinking the same terrible black thoughts you are thinking right now.  You cannot let yourself lose control of who you really are and what is really important in life.  You must not let PD win over you because you are more than just a penis, and you are stronger and more important than this problem.

Every week I get emails and phone calls from men from around the world who are making improvement with their PD scars and their curvatures.  Some get a little help, some get a tremendous amount of help, but almost everyone who works hard and follows a few simple ideas about Peyronie's treatment earns some level of improvement of this PD. 

You will not know if you can help yourself until you decide to try.  Right now you are letting PD control your thoughts and feelings, and this is not good.  You are making the mistake of allowing yourself feel like a PD victim.  Just because your MD did not spend time talking with you and did not have answers for you does not mean you cannot take care of yourself.  You can be in control of your situation if you make that decision.  It all comes down to deciding to be bigger, stronger, tougher and more determined than your PD.  Once you do that you will be in control of your feelings and you will get busy helping your body eliminate your Peyronie's plaque to the best of your ability.   TRH

How do I know if I have Peyronies disease?

Doctor,  Can you tell me how do I know for sure if I have Peyronies?  I went to my family doctor urologist last week because my penis started to bend to the right 2 months ago and it hurts.  After being in the room with me for less than 3 minutes and not even touching me, he said he was not sure if I have Peyronies so he told me to come back in 6 months to see if it gets worse.  It is driving me crazy not knowing for sure what is happening. Do I have PD or not?  Please help.  Carl

 

Greetings Carl, 

Sorry to learn of your problem and the difficult situation you are in. 

Unfortunately, no one can diagnose a condition as complex as Peyronie’s disease solely on the basis of the limited information you have provided.  While in your description there are certainly aspects that sound like you have PD, there is no way to say with any certainty without a direct examination.  

Typically, there are three primary criteria that must be fulfilled in order to establish a diagnosis of PD:

Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial”>1.    Presence of one or more scars or nodules felt under the skin of the shaft

Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial”>2.    Pain during erection

Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:Arial”>3.    Recent development of bend or significant distortion 

It is possible to make a diagnosis without one of the above, if the other two are strongly affirmative.   My advice is that if you are in doubt about the condition affecting you in this way, you should go to a urologist specializing in PD, or at least one who says he has considerable experience in this area, and ask him these same questions.   Do not allow another doctor to get away with the poor care that has been provided to you previously.

You deserve to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing exactly what it is that is affecting your health in this way.  

Good luck to you and let me know what the answer is to your question, please.  TRH

How do I find my Peyronies scar?

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?

 

Greetings, 

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

How do I get the DMSO gel to stay on?

How do I get the DMSO gel to stay on?  It's so viscous it won't spread out on it's own.

Tom. U.

Greetings Tom,

Never been asked that question before. My guess is that because DMSO “freezes” somewhere around 62 (?) degrees Fahrenheit, that this might be your problem. If the place where you are keeping it is rather cool, it might simply be close to turning to a solid.

I suggest you simply place it in a container of warm – not hot – water to allow it to come to its normal liquid state. The DMSO gel should have the consistency of  liquid hair shampoo. Be sure that the DMSO is the last thing you apply to the area if you are also using Super CP Serum and Unique-E oil to the shaft.   TRH

How do I help my husband deal with his Peyronie’s disease?

Doctor,

My husband was diagnosed with Peyronie's disease a little more than two years ago but is not doing anything about it.  His doctor told him there is nothing to do for his condition  except surgery, so he has just shut down.  He will not talk to me about his severe curvature and he refuses to discuss how we are going to continue like this.  In fact, over the last few months he is talking to me less and less.  We have not had intimate relations since all this started. 

Of course I am worried about his physical condition, but I also see him becoming more isolated and quick to get angry and this makes me worried for him.  He is a good man and we had a great relationship before this happened. 

I see that your attitude and approach is so much different about this problem that I hope you can help us.  How do I help my husband deal with his Peyronie's disease?

Harriet

P.S.  Thanks for helping others.

 

Greetings Harriet,

Sorry to learn that your husband has withdrawn from his problem, but this is actually a very common situation.  Many men respond this way when they develop Peyronie's disease.  I know so because I receive emails all the time from worried wives that report the same thing you are going through. Peyronie's disease can be very stressful and confusing for the man who gets it, but also for his wife who desperately wants to help and does not know how. It can hurt a lot.

This subject is broad and deep.  In fact, because it is so common and important in PD treatment I devoted a considerable portion of the 2nd book I wrote to this area of the relationship of any couple dealing with PD.  I suggest you go to the PDI website and order the book, “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex” to learn what you can do to help your husband, because there is actually a lot you can do.   I know this book will help you to understand what is going on inside him, and what you can do now to bridge the gap between you.

From considerable past experience I can tell you that his lack of communication with you, and his withdrawal from sexual contact, are all related to fear and shame.   Become more knowledgeable about Peyronie's disease; learn some of the more technical terms and concepts; learn about natural PD treatment; memorize just a few facts about PD.  The very next time you are given a natural and appropriate opportunity to mention something about PD, include some of this new technical information in your conversation.  Talk about Peyronie's disease and the treatment ideas you learned on the PDI website.  Do not talk about or mention what is going on with him.  Do not make it personal at this time; make the conversational general so he is not made to feel any more uncomfortable than necessary,   Just the fact that you suddenly know these things will tell him that you are on his side, and that you now know a few things that might help him.  Slowly draw him out this way. If he asks, show him the PDI website and show him how to explore it.

If you can make him aware that there is actually a reasonable and effective approach to Peyronie's treatment that his MD did not know about, you can give your husband a a reason to get excited about overcoming his problem.  This approach has helped save other marriages and could help you also.   

Let me know if you have any specific questions I can assist you with.    TRH
