What is Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie's Disease Causes

Peyronie’s disease is the curvature of the penis, which develops due to the compaction of the penis and the proliferation of fibrous tissue, which makes the erection painful. This condition has been diagnosed in 0.3% – 1% of men in the age group from 40 to 60 years. At the same time, medical research confirms that the disease is caused by plaques in the gallbladder shell of the cavernous bodies and benign seals on the side of the back of the penis, the urethra and along the sides of the penis.

What symptoms does Peyronie’s disease cause?

The fibrosis (scar) that occurs on the surface of the penis (tunica albuginea) can cause the following problems:

  • Shortening or narrowing of the penis.
  • Impotence or descent of the erection
  • Strong pain at the time of erection.
  • Difficulty to maintain sexual relations.
  • Incurvation of the penis during the erection that can prevent the penetration.
  • Erectile dysfunction

Obviously, the problems for the sexual relation (for the incurvation or for the lack of rigidity) can cause much anxiety and psychological problems. On examination, a hardened area is palpated, usually on the upper part of the penis and other times on the sides of the penis. This disease has a variable evolution, but it tends to be progressive, that is to say: with time the curvature increases and the size of the penis are reduced.

Causes of Peyronie’s Disease

The main cause of Peyronie’s disease is heredity and genetic changes, but traumas can become an impetus to the development of the disease. Scientific studies have shown that a number of systemic diseases and pathological changes affect the development of Peyronie’s disease.

The first symptoms of the disease may be mild and not cause fear, but within a few weeks or months, they are worse. Symptoms of Peyronie’s disease are erectile dysfunction and pain in her, and the sexual organ becomes curved and becomes shorter, the scar tissue grows, plaques are formed, and the penis is deformed from both sides. As a result, patients experience erectile dysfunction and spasm of the vessels of the genital organ.

A serious cause of Peyronie’s disease can be trauma to the penis, including micro-tissue tears, small vessel damage, and hematoma. Often with heavy physical exertion and intense sexual intercourse, fibrous-type plaques are formed that provoke Peyronie’s disease.

This disease can be caused by an autoimmune disorder and the appearance of pathological reactions, as well as a hereditary predisposition to deviations in the production of collagen.

In a number of cases, Peyronie’s disease was caused by side effects of drugs for the treatment of hypertension and heart disease, as well as beta-blockers. Before cancellation of the drug, you should undergo a full diagnostic examination to identify cause and effect relationships with Peyronie’s disease.

Often, this male disease is caused by violations of the connective tissue of the genital organ or age-related degenerative changes after 50 years.

Why does this disease occur?

It is not known with certainty what is the cause of fibrosis plaque formation. It may be the result of trauma to the erect penis (for example during intercourse).

Several studies link Peyronie’s disease with alterations of the immune system. However, this disease is not related to sexually transmitted diseases, nor is it a type of cancer. Any man can suffer from this disease. The average age for its appearance is fifty years but it can occur in young men.

Peyronie Disease Treatment Option

Treatment of Peyronie’s disease is carried out individually, depending on the degree of curvature and the manifestation of soreness. There are several methods of therapy:

  1. Surgery is the most effective way to eliminate the disease. The basis is several activities – the elimination of plaques and the creation on the opposite side of the lesion of special folds from the membranes of the penis to achieve its alignment. In some situations, you may need a fallo prosthetics or fallo implantation;
  2. Use of medicines – is carried out in several cases when it is impossible to conduct medical intervention or in the early stages of the disease. Often prescribe the intake of vitamin E, substances that reduce the likelihood of plaque formation and promote their resorption. But in this case, there is a high probability of a deterioration of Peyronie’s disease. Also, the use of medications reduces fibrinogen content, cell division, and collagen, anti-inflammatory substances, as well as drugs that reduce the activity of immunity.
  3. Physiotherapy – electrophoresis and the use of laser radiation.

As the disease develops rather slowly, there is a misconception that when the first signs appear, it is best to use folk medicine to avoid medical intervention. But it is important to remember that only the operation is the only way to treat Peyronie’s disease.
