This condition results from scar tissue that developed on a man’s penis and that causes curved, painful erections. This can affect a man’s sex life significantly, especially if it causes erectile dysfunction (ED). ED, as well as penile shortening, are common concerns. The pain the condition can cause is another significant concern.
It’s important to understand that this condition doesn’t go away by itself, and it can worsen, so it requires professional treatment. The sooner a man gets treated for Peyronie’s disease, the better, and with professional care, symptoms can improve significantly.
There are some common signs and symptoms of Peyronie’s disease, which include scar tissue, a significant bend to the penis, penile shortening, pain, other deformities, and/or erection problems (like getting or maintaining an erection; this is ED and it often occurs before other symptoms occur). Professional treatment is necessary for Peyronie’s disease.
A simple physical exam is usually enough to diagnose Peyronie’s disease, but sometimes an ultrasound or another test can help with diagnosis. As for treatment, there are definitely options out there! The treatment we’ll recommend at our clinic depends on how long it’s been since you started having symptoms. Possible treatments include:
– Penile traction therapy – Best used early in the disease process. This prevents length loss and minimizes curvature.
– Medical and injection therapies – Can work well early on and provide significant symptom relief.
– Medications – Could work well early on too. Includes collagenase (Xiaflex), verapamil, and interferon.
– Surgery – This is recommended only when the disease has stabilized. At American Male Medical, we won’t recommend surgery unless we believe it’s absolutely necessary.
– Stem-cell therapy and PRP therapy – These therapies may help many patients, as they can heal scar tissue.
– Shock wave therapy – Can be effective too, and we provide this treatment option and many others here at American Male Medical.
We’re able to provide most of these treatments at our clinic, and one or more of them could benefit you greatly. The various therapies take time to work, but can work very well for many patients.
Although there isn’t a cure for Peyronie’s disease, the symptoms can be treated and managed effectively. A therapy like penile traction therapy will usually take several months, but the symptoms can be improved significantly and the benefits can be drastic and life-changing. Surgery may offer more permanent results, but you might not ever need it.
The first step is to have a simple consultation with us here at American Male Medical. In your consultation, we’ll ask about your symptoms, and if we suspect Peyronie’s disease or another issue, we’ll proceed with a physical. We can provide any other tests you’ll need for an accurate diagnosis. After your consultation, and if you do have Peyronie’s disease, then we’ll be able to provide any treatment or combination of treatments necessary.
