Symptoms of Peyronie's Disease

First and the most obvious symptom has to be a curve in the penis when it is erect. The most common sides are left and right but it may also curve upwards. Sometimes a thick hardened lump, called plaque is created in the shaft of the penis. That is why it is important to notice any change in the shape and size of the penis. A slight curve without the pain is fine but if you experience pain while erection, you must visit an expert. You may also see a change in the shape of the penis as it may lose its length or the girth.

Treatment of Peyronie's disease includes both surgical and non-surgical options depending on the severity of the disease. If the curve in the penis makes having sex difficult, painful or even impossible sometimes doctors may suggest surgery.
