Don't be shy_sign up
« on: June 29, 2017, 11:17:52 AM »

Can I urge guests to take a few moments and register.

This IMO is the only serious site for us guys suffering Peyronie's to be in, so please consider joining in, the more we discuss this the better informed we all become and not (so to speak) suffer in silence.

Peyronie's disease is a connective tissue disorder of the penis that can be likened to arthritis. It is characterized by the triad of bent erections, pain in the penis with erections and palpable penile plaque. Peyronie's disease is quite common, affecting as much as 1 in 11 men despite the lack of public awareness.

Agreed!  Its such a personal situation and this is a great place to support each other.  Its not something you can just chat with buds about so here's the best forum to get info on what's working, how are others coping, what to expect from treatments and what our expectations should be.

Correct, it's not a disease. I dropped the word"disease" and explain it's a condition from trauma, via acrobatic sex, masturbation, injury etc. it should just be called Peyronie's. sometimes I just say arthritis of the penis. I usually tell the crooked man joke. I have to see the humor behind it.

I use disease as folks seem to get it better as a medical condition.  Not sure why to avoid the term.

In my opinion, Peyronies is a disease. Not a contagious one, but disease that is disfiguring part of your body.
But everyone can call it as he wish :) it will still be there.

Guys, this is not a disease or virus, you cannot catch Peyronie's, it's simply
scar tissue!!!



Mixed feelings on this one. You do catch a virus, but there are other diseases that you don't catch. You can be genetically disposed. An example would be diabetes. Definitely considered a disease in the medical community, but you don't catch it.

Peyronie's disease is a connective tissue disorder of the penis that can be likened to arthritis. It is characterized by the triad of bent erections, pain in the penis with erections and palpable penile plaque. Peyronie's disease is quite common, affecting as much as 1 in 11 men despite the lack of public awareness.

The commonality is debatable, since most studies reported a incidence between 0,5-3%. The studies that report up to 9% are done by urologists from questionnaires to patients, of course people who go to urology consultation are more likely to have Peyronie's disease than general population. The same thing with Diabetes, or Erectile Disfunction patients which are even in bigger percentages (15%+).

Also edited to add: I got ostheoarthritis in other parts of my body, and I have to say that the diseases are pretty different. Arthritis has a very slow progression with some pain, but no deformity as such for many years and no loss of functionality yet. Peyronie's your penis is perfectly fine one week, in the next week is deformed and with a noticeably smaller erection. The progression is incredibly fast compared with arthritis. I got no experience with rheumatoid arthritis though.

I don't know if the real incidence is actually up to 10% of men, but I'm likely to believe it. Consider that this is the one that is most reported in most recent studies and that peyronie's most known specialists, who deal with larger numbers of patients (e.g. Levine or Lue), usually report this percentage. Besides, if you take a look at older papers, it was generally reported a percentage of spontaneous remission beetwen 8-13%, but I've never read anywhere on the web of this occurence (and there are even older papers where it was claimed that spontaneous remission was up to 50% of the patients!).

I read that OP don't consider Peyronie's to be a disease, but I feel to disagree. I think that this argument is biased by a common misconception: peyronie's disease is not the plaque; it's rather a localized inflammation that can lead or not to the developement of fibrosis. In Europe this condition is more generally called with the latin term "induratio penis plastica" (that means "plastic hardening of the penis") and this can lead to misunderstandings, because it refers to the most likely result of TA's chronic inflammation and not to the inflammation itself, which is fibrosis' cause and, ultimately, the actual disease.
