Erectile Dysfunction Treatments and Peyronie's Disease

MyOnlineDoctor does not prescribe erectile dysfunction treatments to men suffering from Peyronie’s Disease unless they provide a letter from their own doctor. Peyronie’s Disease is characterised by a marked bend in the shaft of the penis. Some men are born with a natural bend in their penis. We are happy to prescribe ED treatments in these cases. However, if you notice a bend developing than you need to get a face to face consultation. We do not believe that an online consultation is suitable for assessing the extent of Peyronie’s Disease and a physical examination is vital. Once you have had a face to face consultation, you may order ED treatments from MyOnlineDoctor on the condition that you have a letter from your own doctor approving you to do so.

Peyronie's Disease is far more common than most people think. In fact, it affects 1 per cent of men aged 40 to 70, which means there are more than 80,000 men suffering from it in Britain. Due to embarrassment, many men are reluctant to bring up diseases that affect the genital organs. As soon as you feel any pain or abnormal lumps in your penis, you need to go to your doctor. If Peyronie's disease is diagnosed, there are treatment options available (see below). Your doctor may also refer you to a urologist for a more specialist opinion.

What is Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie's disease is when a fibrous plaque develops within the shaft of the penis. This plaque will feel like a small hard lump underneath the skin. When erect, the penis bends and looks angular. In some men the bending is so marked that it makes sexual intercourse impossible.

The Main Symptoms

  • A hard lump (fibrous plaque) within the shaft of the penis
  • Pain with erections
  • Bending of the penis when erect

Currently, the cause of Peyronie's disease is not known. It may be that some people are more genetically disposed than others. What is known is that it is not a sexually transmitted disease and unlike impotence it is never a sign of an underlying serious condition.

Treatment of Peyronie’s Disease

In the early stages, doctors generally try to reduce with medication such as anti-inflammatories, painkillers and steroid injections. In around 20 per cent of men, the fibrous tissue disappears on its own. But in many other men, the bend either stays or gets worse.

The good news is that once the condition stabilises, after 12 to 18 months, it can be treated it surgically, which has a high success rate.
