Over the past few months i have noticed that my penis is bent to the left when i have an erection. About half way up my penis there is an indentation in the left wall of my penis and it bends from there. There are no lumps just a dent or indendation in the wall. It is also not painful.The bend is not severe but about 20 degrees but this is noticable and my partner has commented on this and i am now somewhat embarresed about it.
My doctor thinks this is Peyronie's Disease and has referred me to a Urologist.
Is this likely to be Peyronies Disease or something else as i do not have any pain or dicomfort when i have an erection and there is an indentation in the penis wall rather than a lump which i understand you can get with Peyronies.
Also could you please let me know what treatments there are, if any, if this is Peyronies and will it get worse.
I am 51 and in good health.
Peyronie's disease is certainly possible, although I can't be certain of a diagnosis without evaluation.
I agree with a urology referral. An ultrasound can be considered to confirm the diagnosis.
Treatment can include injections with steroids, collagenase or calcium channel blockers.
These options can be discussed with your urology referral.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
