Congenital Penile Curvature


Is It Normal to Have a Bent Penis?

A majority of men do not have perfectly straight penises. For many of these men, the curvature will be minimal and it will not cause concern. For others, even a slightly bent penis might create a psychological affect or inhibit their ability to enjoy penetrative sex.

Less than 9% of men develop a curvature that is more than 30 degrees. The curvature can be dorsal (upwards), ventral (downwards), lateral (to the left or right) or bi-planar.

In these cases, it is advisable that you seek treatment for your bent penis and consult a specialist doctor.

The first step for treatment is be to determine the reasons for the curvature and also the amount of concern that this causes. One thing that all patients should remember is that irrespective of the cause and severity of the curvature, there is always an effective treatment solution that will lead to a straight and functioning penis.
