Peyronie's disease

Peyronie's disease is caused by scar tissue in the penis, which makes the penis curve during an erection. This curving may cause pain and make sexual intercourse difficult or impossible.

Peyronie's disease usually affects people who are 50 and older. It usually doesn't get better on its own. If you choose to get treatment, your options may include medicines or surgery.
