Typical signs of Peyronies disease are:
- An alarming bend in the penis
- Shortened penis
- Problems with erections
- Painful erections
- Scar tissue under the skin of the penis
These symptoms may develop gradually or come on suddenly. A family history of the disease can cause the problem and the potential for getting the disease increases with age. Men with connective tissue conditions are also susceptible to this disease.
As with any medical condition, a thorough physical exam is the first step in diagnosing Peyronies disease. Our doctors will examine the penis and search for common symptoms of the disease. An ultrasound or X-ray of the penis may also be conducted.
