Pictures of Peyronie’s Disease – Curved Penis

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.  For a discussion, click Peyronie’s disease surgery.

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.

Peyronie's Symptoms

Peyronie's disease symptoms

Peyronie’s disease symptoms can be extremely variable.  In fact, one of the things that make these  symptoms so difficult to put together into a diagnosis or Peyronie's symptoms is the different presentation of this problem from one man to another. For this reason, Peyronie's disease treatment is difficult.  Even pictures of Peyronie’s disease that show what the condition can look like, are also variable.

This is why the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has worked for almost a decade to determine the best possible way to diagnose and treat this problem that often eludes effective care.

Because of the wide variety of Peyronie’s symptoms, Peyronies treatment can be variable when using Alternative medicine.

Peyronie’s symptoms of importance

The onset of Peyronies disease symptoms can be sudden or slow, but most often will appear in less than a month after direct injury, sometimes taking just a few days to appear when injury is found to be the cause of onset.

The severity of Peyronie's symptoms can also be variable. Some men do not even know they have the problem because their Peyronie’s symptoms are so mild, while other men experience alarming Peyronie’s symptoms that they are unavoidable and shocking.

Two most typical Peyronie’s symptoms:

Distorted or curved penis

When the penis is erect, it is very common to have the Peyronie’s symptoms of a deformity or distortion caused by the presence of internal fibrous or “scar’ tissue within the tunica albuginea of the curved penis. The penis may be:

  • Bent, or curved, upward, the most common deformity, or bent down or to one side; not often in will bend down
  • Distorted into an “hourglass” appearance, with a narrow band around the erect shaft that is complete or partial
  • Distorted into an “bottleneck” appearance, in which the base of the penis remains fairly well erect and normal for the individual, but the area above and away from the base remains small and non-erect
  • Distorted into a “hinge,” “dent,” “ding,” “niche” effect, in which the penis when erect has a small but distinct area of non-filling making it appear to have a small portion that remains soft and non-erect.

Any of these Peyronies symptoms of curvature or other deformity may gradually worsen during the first six to 18 months. After a certain point, which is variable from man to man, the distortion will no longer worsen.

Pain as a Peyronie’s symptom

Pain most often occurs with an erection during the first six to 18 months after onset. However, pain associated with Peyronie's disease may present itself in many ways:

  • Only during an erection
  • Only when not erect (flaccid)
  • Only during an orgasm
  • Only when the penis is touched

Some men do not have any distortion or bend of the penis, or pain, making these two common Peyronie’s symptoms not totally reliable as a way to diagnose Peyronie’s disease.

Other common Peyronie’s disease symptoms

Scar tissue under the skin surface

The scar tissue, also known as a plaque, associated with Peyronie's disease can be felt below the surface of the skin of the penis as small elevated or flat beads, lumps, bands of slightly to greatly dense and hard tissue. Some of these are smooth or rough, with even or irregular edges. Some men can easily find their Peyronies scar and with other men it is never located even by a doctor.

Less common Peyronie’s disease symptoms

  • Distortion or bending while flaccid
  • Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Loss of penile size by either shortening of the penis, or loss of girth or circumference, or both
