Peyronie’s disease is a condition by which a small scar forms in the lining of the penis resulting in penile curvature, indentation or pain.
During the first 12 months you may experience pain with erections, curvature of the penis, an abnormal shape to the penis or a lump in the penis. Over the course of the first 12 months, the condition tends to stabilize with improvement in pain and stability of the curve.
Peyronie’s disease typically forms from microscopic trauma occurring during intercourse. The trauma leads to inflammation and then a penile scar or lump.
