Peyronie’s, also known as Induratio Penis Plastica, is a disease that leads to the formation of scar tissue plaque on a man’s penis. It affects around 9% of the male population and can appear at any age, although the prevalence is higher in men older than 35 years of age.
In most cases, men suffering from Peyronie’s disease will notice a lump on their penis and/or that their penis is curved when erect. In addition to the lump and the penile curvature, other concomitant signs of Peyronie’s disease are penile pain and the onset of erectile dysfunction as well as loss of erect penis length and girth. In a number of cases, Peyronie’s disease is asymptomatic and will go un-noticed by patients. In this video, we learn how one man experienced this very treatable disease and how he sought out treatment to improve his life.
