Fibrous scar tissue inside the penis that causes curved, painful erections. Peyronie's disease is caused by repeated penile injury, typically during sex or physical activity.
Symptoms may include:
Penises vary in shape and size, and having a curved erection isn't necessarily a cause for concern. In Peyronie's disease, the bend is significant, and may occur along with pain or interfere with sexual function.
