I am a 21 year old male. Recently I noticed that my penis has an increased curve to the left. It has always been rather straight with a slight curve, but now the curve has increased a little bit. I am just wondering if it will continue to increase or just stay this way. I notice a little bit of what I think is scar tissue on the right side (small, soft lumpy area), but it isn't too much. I also don't have any painful erections.
Should I get this checked out or just leave it alone? Also, what do you think will happen in the future for me? And, is stuff like this normal to happen to men?
One of the more common causes for this symptom is Peyronie's disease. This is the presence of hardened tissue (fibrosis) that can lead to penile curvature.
This can be evaluated during a physical exam, but an ultrasound can be considered if the diagnosis is in question.
If this is the case, there are some non-surgical options - such as calcium channel blockers or collangenase - that can be considered.
Of course, surgery can also be considered if the symptoms worsen.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
