Peyronie's disease can lead to curvature of the penis.  

This is caused by scarring or plaques in the penis.  Further imaging with an ultrasound to be considered.

Many cases are treated conservatively.  However, urologists may try injections of calcium channel blockers, steroids or collagenase into the plaques.

Surgery can be reserved for more serious cases.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
