Peyronie’s disease is a common disease that affects the male genitalia that men are not even aware of. The disease changes the size of the penis. If it occurs early enough, a man gets used to that size of the penis. Hence, he suffers ignorance, not knowing why his sex life is dying.

Against popular opinion, Peyronie’s disease is less frequent in younger men than in older men. Most significantly, for men in their 50s and 60s, Peyronie’s disease is more common.

Age, heredity, and connective tissue implications are risk factors that cause Peyronie’s disease in men. However, this article does not aim to discuss the risk factors associated with Peyronie’s disease alone. Instead, we’ll focus on explaining signs you should look out for in your partner to know if they’re suffering from Peyronie’s Disease.

1.   Hardened Lump On One or Either Side of The Penis

Peyronie’s disease is due to scar tissues formed in and around the penis. This scar tissue is formed due to the disrupted healing process of injuries to the penis during sex. Injuries during sex are not the only cause of Peyronie’s disease: athletic activities, accidents, and surgical operations around the area are possible causes of Peyronie’s disease.

You’ll likely find hardened tissues around the penis; this is the first sign you’ll notice if your partner has Peyronie’s disease.

2.   Changes In The Shape of The Penis With or Without an Erection

Another sign you’ll notice if your partner has Peyronie’s disease is the curved shape of his penis. The curved shape of the penis in Peyronie’s disease is due to the scar tissue formed around blood vessels. So, during an erection, the scar tissue gets little blood flow causing it to bend towards the position of the scar tissue.

However, having a bent penis is not always a sign of Peyronie’s disease. If your partner is in his early 20s or 30s and has a bent penis, it is often called congenital penile curvature. On the other hand, if your partner is in his 50s or 60s and has a curved penis, he should see a doctor for further diagnosis.

3.   Pain During Sexual Intercourse or Erection

The anatomy of the penis is such that the penis is made up of the corpus cavernosum and Tunica Albuginea. The corpus cavernosum is that part of the penis that contains tiny blood vessels; the corpora cavernosa is the elastic part of the penis that sheaths the corpus cavernosum.

Before intercourse, blood flow to the penis increases, which causes an erection. In the case of Peyronie’s disease, there is scar tissue that doesn’t receive blood during the whole process. The scar tissue will lead to the pain and discomfort you experience during erection and sexual intercourse if you have Peyronie’s disease.

4.   Erectile Dysfunction{ED}

Does your partner have erectile dysfunction? It can be due to Peyronie’s disease. Erectile dysfunction is another sign of Peyronie’s disease, which is characterised by the failure of the penis to keep an erection.

In some cases, men with erectile dysfunction aren’t easily aroused for sexual intercourse. Therefore, they lose interest in any sexual activity.

5.   Narrowing or Shortening of The Penis

Finally, men suffering from Peyronie’s disease often experience narrowing or shortening the penis. In some cases, the penis can be hour-glassed or greatly indented.

So, be on the lookout for narrowing and shortening your partner’s penis. It can be Peyronie’s disease.

The Risk Associated WithPeyronie’s Disease

Contrary to popular opinion, minor injuries done to the penis don’t always lead to Peyronie’s disease. Experts say that repeated injuries to the penis can lead to Peyronie’s disease. However, several factors contribute to healing that can be activators for Peyronie’s disease:

  • Connective tissue: men with connective tissues disorders are at higher risk of developing the diseases.
  • Heredity: if you have a history of Peyronie’s disease in the family, you have a higher risk of getting the disease.
  • Age:Peyronie’s disease is common in men in their 50s and 60s. So, if you have a slight curvature in your penis like a young fellow, it’s most likely not Peyronie’s disease.
  • Some types of surgeries: men who have undergone prostate surgeries have a higher chance of developing the diseases than men who have not.
