My penis is curved or twisted, is it normal?
Some men have a penis that curves to one side, up or down when erect. This is common, and for most men having a curved penis is not a problem. In general, a curved penis is only a cause for concern if erections are painful or if the curvature of the penis interferes with sexual activity.
A curved penis usually does not require treatment. If you have a pronouncedly curved penis that causes pain or prevents you from having sex, consult a physician. You may need to see a specialist in sexual or urinary tract problems (urologist).
How to eliminate the curve of the penis without losing size?
Most often, men suffering from penile curvature have difficulties with penetration and, depending on the extent of the fibrous band, it may become impossible or cause pain with erection. It is also common that, even if penetration is possible, it is painful for the man or his partner.
It must be taken into account that the person suffering from the disorder is not always well diagnosed, since the first symptoms, which are usually of discomfort or pain, rarely lead to think about the need to consult a specialist, so that generally when the patient finally goes, the pathology is usually already quite advanced.
The conventional treatment is surgery, which can be of different types and involves an aggressive procedure. For this reason, less invasive alternatives have been sought and, in particular, a new technique based on collagenase injections has been introduced, which modifies the plaque by breaking it up and restoring its elasticity.
Peyronie’s disease or “bent penis” or “bent penis” disease can present itself in different ways: the penis can be hard at the base and soft at the tip, or curved, being thinner in the central area, as if it were being strangled by an invisible band.
The causes of having the penis twisted to one side or the other (Peyronie’s disease) are generally unknown. It may be the result of a blow to the penis or a trauma that may have occurred unintentionally in the middle of sexual intercourse. What actually causes the penis to bend is an internal scar-like hardness, which pulls the penis towards the side where the tightness is most evident. It can be said that Peyronie’s syndrome or disease, or “penedoblado” is an abnormal hardening of the internal tissues of the penis, as if it were an inflexible callus. The problem occurs when the penis becomes erect, which is when the penis bends, causing in many cases severe pain and impotence.
Types of penis according to their shape
Peyronie’s disease is a disorder in which scar tissue, known as plaque, forms under the skin of the penis, the male organ used for urination and sexual intercourse.
As it develops, the plaque pulls on surrounding tissues and causes the penis to curve or bend, usually during an erection. Curvatures in the penis can make erections painful or intercourse painful, difficult or impossible.
Medical experts believe that Peyronie’s disease may be inherited. For example, if a parent or sibling has Peyronie’s disease, the person may also be more likely to have the disease.
The likelihood of having Peyronie’s disease increases with age. Age-related changes in the tissues of the penis may cause it to be more easily injured and less likely to recover well.
The chance of developing Peyronie’s disease increases after surgery for prostate cancer. Medical experts believe this is related to the erectile dysfunction that occurs after prostate cancer surgery.5
