Curvature Of The Penis

Why Is My Penis Bent

It is thought that around 40% of all men have penile curvature to varying degrees, the problem (medical name Peyronies disease or cavernositis) develop due to the formation of hardened scar like tissue or plaques in or along the shaft of the penis.



These inflexible plaques stop the blood vessels in the local surrounding area from expanding with blood as an erection develops, this (as the non affected blood vessels expand with blood) causes the penis to bend or curve towards the plaque,

For some men, the problem is minimal, hardly noticeable and they go through life without any problems, for others the bend or curve can be so defined that the act of intercourse is difficult and painless at best and for some totally impossible.

Peyronies Disease can affect men of any age, but it does seem to be more common in men as they approach 50 years.

Identifying Peyronies Disease

The main characteristics of Peyronies disease is small hardened lumps or thickened skin that become noticeable on one side of the penis, as the penis becomes erect it tends to curve towards the affected area.

The disease can develop over a period of months, the bend or curve increasing gradually.

In many cases, especially those that only display minimum curvature the problem usually disperses on its own (although it can take a number of months), for those with more serious curvature, the disease will almost certainly required treating.

The actual cause still confuses medical experts; some think that it is the result of a virus or allergic reaction that causes inflammation in the penile tissue. It is most definitely NOT a Sexually transmitted disease.

Most mild cases do not need treatment and will usually disperse on their own over time, for more severe cases of curvature there are several methods that can be used – some are generally more effective than others.

Vitamin Treatments – doctors have experimented with different vitamin supplements with limited success

Surgery – the most extreme and last ditch treatment, usually only attempted if the problem has lasted for longer than a year. Surgical methods can include the insertion of an implant on the opposite side to the plaque which counteracts the affect of the disease – this can often result in reduced erection length.

Other methods include the pinching the skin opposite the plaque or the grafting of veins into the plaque to try and increase the flexibility  and the erection capability of the penis. None of these surgical methods offer guaranteed results, and on many occasions have been known to reduce the length of the penis.

Penis Vacuum Pump – medically approved devices that by way of a vacuum, place the penis under a gentle yet powerful pulling pressure (traction), this pressure offers several benefits – the action of the vacuum forces increased amounts of blood into the penis, this helps (over a period of time) to break down and disperse the plaques internally, allowing the penis to become straighter whilst erect.

Erections gained through the vacuum process are usually visibly longer, thicker, and often last longer.

As the plaques disperse, with regular use, the penis will remain straighter, and can actually gain a permanent increase in length.

These kinds of devices are without doubt one of the most effective methods of treating Peyronies disease without any invasive surgery.
