By all means talk to your family doctor. On a rare chance, you may have what is known as Peyronies Disease but not likely. Most often, a curved penis is NOT Peyronies Disease!!! Only 2% of men have Peyronies Disease while virtually EVERY man has a curved penis to some degree!
Peyronies Disease is a condition where the penis has suffered an injury to the erectile tissue and that area of tissue no longer engorges with blood when the penis is aroused. Commonly this tissue turns into plaque and therefore no amount of exercise is going to alter this tissue! During arousal the surrounding tissue engorges normally and this causes a "bent" penis. The bend occurs at the point of the damaged, or plaqued tissue. This can be tremendously painful and embarrassing and even surgery is not 100% effective in correcting this ailment. Anyone who uses the term Peyronies Disease and says that you can fix it on their program doesn't know a thing about anatomy, disease and maybe even penis enlargement so beware!
Why does the penis curve? It's due to the fact that human beings develop in the womb in two halves and at different rates, split right down the middle. You can prove this to yourself in a variety of ways including one foot is larger than the other, one arm is slightly longer than the other, one leg is slightly longer than the other, you have a seam in your palette (the roof of your mouth) and there is a seam on the underside of your scrotum (or, ball sac - for those into layman's terms). The penis also develops in two halves and at different rates. If the curve is to the right, the left side of your penis is ever-so-slightly longer than the right and if it curves to the left it is vice-versa.
Peyronie's disease was named after an Italian physician to King Louis XIV of France. This physician was the first to note the disorder back in the 1700s.
A minor bend in the erect penis is perfectly normal, as few penises are straight as an arrow. In some cases of Peyronie's, however, the penis can form a "J" or a corkscrew, making intercourse impossible.
There are theories, and some reports suggest that men who take beta-blocking medications for high blood pressure can also develop Peyronie's.
How is the penis constructed?
The penis is composed of three cylindrical cavities. The two on top are called the corpus cavernosa, and the one on bottom the corpus spongiosum, which contains the urethra (the tube that urine flows through).
The two top corporal cavities expand to trap and hold the blood that produces an erection in the male. The bottom body, corpus spongiosum, functions mainly for the passage of urine. Each of these corporal bodies is surrounded by a very elastic covering called the tunica albuginea.
On top of the two corporal cavernosa are the superficial nerves and blood vessels of the penis.
Why does the penis curve?
In Peyronie's disease, the normal elastic tissue of the tunica is replaced by scar tissue. Normally with erection the elastic tissue of the penis expands and elongates symmetrically resulting in a straight erection. Because the plaque, or scar tissue, is not elastic, but rather hard, it will not stretch with erection.
The disease starts as a small bump or constriction on the shaft of the penis below the skin, which expands to form a flat deposit that's sometimes as large as the diameter of a silver dollar. This "plaque" invades and replaces the elastic covering of the penis with inflexible material. When a man with Peyronie's has an erection, the plaque does not expand, so the penis curves to one side.
How does a curved penis affect sexual intercourse?
A third of men with Peyronie's have pain with their erections. A few men with Peyronie's become impotent. In some cases, the head of the penis does not fill with blood.
Because inflammation is initially associated with the scar tissue, there can be some discomfort with erection and distension. Many patients complain not only about the curvature of the erection but the loss of length and girth. These are all results of the inelastic tissue and lack of distention that results.
Most patients with Peyronie's disease can continue to function sexually with the curvature in the penis. Rarely, some patients with greater distortion are unable to have satisfactory sexual intercourse.
