Peyronies disease pictures
How a curved penis develops as shown in these Peyronie’s pictures
Imagine a long balloon that has not yet been blown up, and it has a small piece of tape on it. As the balloon is inflated the tape will not expand like the rest of the balloon, and so as the rest of the balloon is getting larger the area that has the tape will not expand, causing the balloon to be distorted.
Peyronie’s disease causes a bent or distorted penis in a similar mechanism. As a normal penis might expand and elongate evenly it will result in a straight erection. But in Peyronie’s disease a rather dense and inelastic plaque tissue develops within he deeper layers of the penis. This plaque tissue does not expand as well as the surrounding normal tissue and it will not allow the area of the penis where it is located to expand either. When a man with Peyronie’s has an erection the plaque does not expand, thus a curve or twist results at the site where the plaque is located.
The amount of penis distortion that occurs in a case of Peyronie’s disease can range from mild to severe. Some PD cases are so mild as to be detected only on autopsy, while others are so severe that intercourse is impossible and surgery is necessary to reduce painful distortion. The scar may range from a few millimeters or may encompass the entire shaft of the penis. Pain, hardened scar formation and/or distortion may develop slowly or appear overnight in PD. Angulation of the erect penis from 5°- 45° is common, and can be greater; deformities can advance beyond 90º and at the extreme an erect penis may be so distorted (“J” or “corkscrew”) that intercourse is impossible or at least extremely painful for both partners.
Distortion or angulation of the non-erect penis is rare. In a small percent of cases where the body works efficiently to reduce the tissue reaction, inflammation may be resolved early without causing significant pain or permanent bending. Sexual difficulty and impotency also range from mild to severe, depending on the degree of deformity. In some cases the plaque can result in the formation of a bottle-neck, collar-like, or hourglass-like deformity of the erect penis. Additionally, the mass of fibrous scar tissue may prevent the closure of valves in the penile veins so that the hydraulic pressure needed to create an erection is never achieved.
When the Peyronie’s plaque does not allow the valves of the veins within the penis to close, blood cannot be trapped in the penis as it should to create an erection. This inability to close the penis veins results in erectile dysfunction in which the penis is limp or soft beyond the location of the fibrous nodule, often leading to inability to have sexual intercourse. Depending on the location of plaque in relation to the veins of the penis, this loss of hydraulic pressure can causes the penis to be soft in a very small or very large area.
Photos of Peyronies disease are educational
Pictures of Peyronies disease are an important part of learning about this problem, if only to evaluate yourself to see how good or bad you are compared to other men’s penile curvature. Men usually feel a little creepy looking at so many penises, but seeing Peyronie’s disease pictures will help you to put things in perspective. I had a 35 degree sharp bend to the left that also went upwards about 10 degrees; about half of the time the penis would also be twisted in this area. After looking at these photographs of Peyronies men you will soon come to know you are not alone because you will probably see a curved penis or hourglass deformity that looks exactly like your own problem.
The Peyronies pictures showing the classic curved penis deformity are only presented here to widen the education and experience of anyone who wants to learn more about this terrible problem. Those pictures of Peyronie’s disease found further down toward the bottom of this article are shown in graphic full male nudity, presented only for educational purposes.
To help the reader verify and comprehend the shocking appearance of the Peyronie’s disease problem, many men are amazed when seeing a Peyronies picture for the first time. It can be a real wake-up call to see how severe Peyronie’s disease can become, for those whose case is early and therefore mild in nature. Men incorrectly assume they have a mild case that will always stay mild, and this is a big mistake. As the disease progresses the distortion can worsen suddenly after being stable for several years.
These Peyronies disease pictures are not offered so a layperson can attempt to make a self-diagnosis. They are presented to encourage prompt medical evaluation and attention about any problem that might be PD. Just as every person is unique in many ways, with unique mental, emotional and physical characteristics – this difference even extends to the appearance of the penis in health and disease. Simply because the penis is curved or even severely bent like a cane handle, does not necessarily support a diagnosis of Peyronies.
Do not assume that your penis must look like those that are shown below for your condition to be Peyronie’s disease. Diagnosis is not that easy. Only a trained and experienced physician should attempt to diagnose Peyronie’s disease regardless of how large or small the penile distortion might be.
For many it is difficult to understand and appreciate the full consequences and eventual degree of distortion that can eventually develop in a case of Peyronie’s disease – until it is too late. Because hardly anyone knows anything about this problem, and probably have never even heard of it until the time they are given a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease, no one knows how bad the penile curvature can be. There is always that tendency to underestimate the problem of PD because of this lack of information. Men assume that their small problem will stay “just a minor inconvenience, and hardly noticeable”. For some the curve or distortion starts small and stays small for a long time. However, for others it rapidly progresses from a slight penile curvature and rapidly continues to get more distorted, more curved, and perhaps more painful, until the structural changes are so great that they result in the complete loss of sexual function. Totally overwhelmed and unsure of the correct course of action, men often resort to surgical correction at this time.
Without fully understanding where Peyronie’s disease might take them, it is more comfortable to underestimate the curved penis of Peyronies. An uninformed and uneducated can will agree with the wishful thinking of the standard medical treatment to do absolutely nothing for PD in its early stages. This wait-and-see approach is an unfortunate waste of time and opportunity. It is exactly during the early stages of Peyronie’s disease, while the condition is not fully developed before heavy layers of fibrous tissue have created the mature Peyronie’s plaque, that much can be done to help the body heal and correct the Peyronie’s problem.
