A very healthy penis can have a very severe Peyronies “disease” bend.
The reason is: Peyronies “disease” is NOT a disease. The name is totally misleading. (You’ll soon learn how it got the misleading name.) This bending has nothing to do with actual penis health.
This type of bent penis is caused simply, yes simply, by a hardened piece of internal scar tissue inside the shaft. And, it's usually in a healthy penis.
That’s all there is to this “disease”. It is NOT a disease at all.
With a bent penis caused by Peyronies “disease”,
there is no pathology, no disease, no other horrible thing going on 99.99% of the time.
You simply have some tissue inside your shaft on one or more of the erectile chambers that is not stretching the same as the rest of the chambers and is causing your perfectly healthy penis to bend in it’s direction.
Then why is this terrible penile bending called a “disease”?
Here’s the answer.
This bent penis condition (yes condition, not disease) was first understood by a very prominent French doctor named Francois Gigot de la Peyronie. Dr. Peyronie was actually the first surgeon to King Louis XV.
In 1743, he explained the condition. And, it got named after him.
Yes 1743. That was when all kinds of healing practices were legal, dentistry did not even exist, and modern western medicine as we now know it was just beginning to get organized and codified.
Codified means they were actually writing things down and creating an organized system of treatment that cold be used universally.
Virtually anybody who discovered the reason for any malady might just have it named after him for codification purposes.
Such is the case with Dr. Peyronie.
Dr. Peyronie was the man who figured out why so many men were developing a severe bend in their shaft somewhere in mid life. And, he described it formally.
So, the condition was named Peyronie’s Disease. Later the apostrophe was dropped and we got the name that stuck and has traumatized hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of men since.
Remember: This condition is NOT a disease. And, you usually find it in a healthy penis.
Here’s the reason:
Is the scar on your hand, face, or foot a disease? Of course not. And, neither is this one inside of your shaft. Make sense?
And, yes. The whole thing, as horrible as it looks and feels is just that simple. The “cure” or “correction” is equally as simple 99% of the time. And, fixing a bent penis does not require surgery 99% of the time either.
Almost every man who gets this type of bend
Perfectly Normal Healthy Penis.
A scar is not a “disease” no matter where it is on your body. And, this includes inside your shaft.
The fact that these scars have hardened later in life is mostly just a genetic characteristic about 9% of men inherit.Not all will develop a bent severe enough to need treatment. “A recent study in Germany found Peyronie's disease in 3.2 percent of men between 30 and 80 years of age.”
It’s also rather amazing that a bent penis problem this common is one that we usually never hear of. Why? Embarrassment?
The fact is ALL of the scars in the body of a man with this type of bent penis are hardening the same way. They are growing tougher, or thicker, or more fibrous. Or, all these things.
In any other part of the body, this is actually a genetically inherited advantage. A harder tougher scar has less chance of being injured again.
You never notice the hardening anywhere else on your body because nothing else in or on your body has to stretch 4 or 5 times it’s normal size.
But, during erection, you cock does. And, these small pieces of hardened tissue just can’t do that.
Now, to have a scar you have to have a trauma. (Technical word for injury.) Right?
And, you don’t remember having one in your penis. Right again? Or, that injury was 20 or 30 years ago. So, why are you bending now?
Well, that injury, most commonly, was during some rough sex as a young man. Like when you slipped out of your partner’s vagina and rush to get back in. Then rushed to get back in. In the heat of passion, you thrust hard. And, felt that “ouch” as your penis rammed into her body or pubic bone! Sound at all familiar?
That “ouch” can happen many ways. An erection was never meant to bend at all. The “ouch” could even have happened in your sleep when you had an erection and rolled over an bent it just a tiny bit.
That “ouch” was a small tear inside your shaft. You never saw it. usually there was no bruise or bleeding. And, the next day it just became a funny story.
Can you see how easy it is to get that tear? And, how easily we forget it?
That little tear healed with a scar. And, up until now, it never bothered you again.
Now, 20 or 30 years later, when your scars started hardening and becoming stronger, that scar did too. And, now it is making your erections, in your completely healthy penis, bend.
Often we are told this “disease” is a mystery. No one really knows the real cause. That scares us nicely. Makes us sweat. Makes us think we no longer have a healthy penis. Or, worse. And, we begin to wonder what other goblin or manifestation is waiting around the corner to strike us down. Right?
We all did this. You are not alone.
And, then, sure enough, 80% of us with this bending will soon get erectile dysfunction. We almost never know the bending itself can cause the ED. This is a mechanical issue. Not a health issue.
We just think all hell has broken loose on our sexual system, or, that we are being punished by God for earlier sexual transgressions.
It’s just a scar. It has nothing to do with the health of your penis.
Yes. That’s all it is.
Good News! Right?
Here’s more good news:
Stretch out that scar enough and the erections will be straight again.
Don’t be misled. This bending is never a mystery. There is always a cause. And, it has nothing to do with a healthy penis or an unhealthy one.
Always Remember: I can't say this enough: It’s just a hardened scar. Nothing more. 99% of the time, this bend is easy to fix. Without surgery, injections, or drugs.
99.99% of the time
that scar can be stretched out
so that erections form normally again.
“Do I still have a healthy penis if I now have erectile dysfunction?”
That’s a very good and a very common question. And, there’s some very good news!
If the erectile dysfunction was caused just by the bending, the ED also usually disappears “like magic” after the the shaft is straightened non-invasively (without surgery or injections).
- Getting a bent penis caused by Peyronies disease doesn’t mean you don’t have a healthy penis. It very simply means you have some hardened scar tissue inside your shaft on one or more of the erectile chambers. That’s all.
- Non-invasive straightening can usually correct this condition and return the erections to normal.
- If ED was caused by the bending, the non-invasive straightening will usually resolve this problem also. So, don’t foolishly start up with sexual stimulants. They are dangerous.
- The cost for one of the very best non-invasive straightening devices in the world is under $300.
- There are only three medically endorsed methods of straightening that have proven reliable:
1) Surgery: $8,000 - $19,000
potential side effects include:
65% of patients were unhappy with the outcomes of the Peyronie's
surgery at 5-year follow-up. Penile length loss and worsening of
erectile dysfunction was the most common reason for dissatisfaction.”
reference: Dr. Nelson Bennett,
“Five-year follow-up of Peyronie's graft surgery: outcomes and patient satisfaction.”
2) Xiaflex Injections: $30,000 to $50,000
potential side effects include:
"Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Xiaflex: hives; chest pain, difficult breathing; feeling like you might pass out; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Xiaflex can damage a nerve, tendon, or ligament in the hand the medicine is injected into. After the swelling from your injection goes down, call your doctor if you have:
Also call your doctor at once if you have:
Common Xiaflex side effects may include:

3) Penis Traction Therapy (controlled stretching): under $300
Has NONE of the possible surgical or injectable side effects.
What do you think makes the most sense to try first?
Be in Good Health.....
