Penile Curvature ‘Affects One in Five’

Penile curvature is much more prevalent among men than originally thought, suggesting that Peyronie’s disease is underdiagnosed, Australian researchers say.

Data from a population-based survery of 1782 Australian men, with a mean age of 55, found that 19% had penile curvature, which is more than double the previous estimate of 9%

The survey showed that the average age for the development of the condition was just over 42 years and that one in three men reported curvature equal to, or greater than, 30 degrees.

The psychosexual effects of penile curvature was also laid bare, with one in six men complaining of penile pain or discomfort when they had an erection and one in five men experiencing difficulty during penetrative intercourse.

The survey provides the first available population-based prevalence estimate for penile curvature, but the men were not asked whether they had been diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease.

The researchers, led by Brisbane urologist Associate Professor Eric Chung from the university of Queensland, said the incidence rate of Peyronie’s disease appeared to have risen in recent years “partly because more men are willing to come forward for treatment due to increasing awareness and less stigmatization”.

Given the high prevalence of penile curvature in this country, there is a need to raise awareness and implemented effective screening and treatment strategies,” the authors wrote.

Transcript
A man with erectile dysfunction has lost confidence in his ability to penetrate his partner and to maintain that ability until orgasm.

Some men have a psychological cause for their erectile dysfunction. The loss of a wife, the lack of sexual confidence, depression, anxiety.

But the majority of men we see, especially in the 45-plus age group, have organic erectile dysfunction. They’ve been smoking, they’ve been diabetic, they’ve had cancer surgery.

These men have a physical problem and they need definitive help. Now, a lot of men respond to Viagra or Cialis, very effective tablets, but not all do.

These men we counsel with respect to the use of penile injection therapy or the highly-effective penile prosthetic surgery. Penile prosthetic surgery is the gold standard means of restoring confident sexual ability.

Men can have sex when they want and for as long as they want and, of course, from the ladies’ point of view, there’s no frustration, there’s no failure. So it meets with a very high level of patient and partner satisfaction.

In short, it fixes the problem and lets the couple get on with their life together.

Why is my penis bent?

There can be many reasons for a penis to be bent. It is often normal to have a penis curve slightly upwards, right or left when erect. However if you have more than a slight curve it could be symptomatic of Peyronie’s Disease. The primary cause of the disease is so far unknown but can be attributed to a variety of things.

Peyronie’s disease can be especially problematic if a bent penis interferes with normal day to day activities including sex and urination. If you are experiencing pain or difficulties in these areas, you should definitely see a urologist or your local GP for a referral. Again, these symptoms could indicate a more serious problem, such as Peyronie’s Disease.
