The typical symptoms of painful erections and
curvature, angulation or deformity of the shaft are
usually enough for a doctor to suspect that you have
the disease. A urologist can usually feel the plaque in
the penis with or without an erection to confirm the
diagnose Peyronie’s disease. The deformation could be
assessed by photographs taken at home
or after an intracavernous injection
It is a portential benefit to reduce the chance of ED
associated with Peyronie’s disease by
reducing alcohol consumption
avoiding illegal drugs
How can Peyronie’s disease be prevented?
Researchers do not know how to prevent Peyronie’s
Do I need any tests for Peyronie's disease?
In most cases it is not necessary to do any other tests
but, occasionally, you may be asked to undergo a type
of scan called a duplex ultrasound which shows up the
blood circulation of the penis after an intrac-cavernous
injection and allows to take photgraphs. Sometimes, an
MRI could be done to evaluatethe evolutivity, especially
in young men and when the pain is durable
What is the prognosis for Peyronie's disease?
One research study found that only 13 out of a 100
men got better without treatment. Of the rest, half had
mild but continuing symptoms, the other half got
increasing amounts of pain and/or curvature of the
penis. With treatment, the situation can often be
improved. However, more research is needed to
investigate the effect of the various available
treatments on prognosis.
