Plaque or Blood Vessels?
« on: September 20, 2018, 12:15:08 AM »

How can you tell the difference if you're pressing on a plaque or a blood vessel? I have several hard blood vessels. Currently I have flaccid curvature, and I also have occasional turtling, but, idk if that's because I havemt worked out forever. I know cardiovascular haealth has a lot to deal with bloodflow too. Are there ant other growers on this forum that can help me please? I'd appreciate the help.

Hey program,

I'm asking myself pretty much the same question, since last year now...

When I try to palpate the plaque in flaccid state, I happen to touch very hard spots, or very hard lines (especially on the dorsal zone, from the base of the penis to the top; and also a similar cord-like thing on the right of my shaft), but they do not correspond to the areas where I do have a plaque according to my urologist (which performs an ultra-precise ultrasound every month). This phenomenon seems to be amplified by traction.

So, yes, if anyone has an idea...

I’d rely on an ultrasound to determine if it is plaque.

Yes. Will do. And are flaccid ultrasounds just as accurate? I'm beginning to wonder if I even have this because the only thing I have is hourglassing when flaccid only. I think I'm definitely out of shape, I did I just myself last year exactly a year to date. I have erections and what not. Also slight soreness, but, that maybe due to not masturbating for a long time. Any thoughts? Also I haven't lost any size. My waist is like 45 and hips like 49 so I'm definitely over weight. But for safety measures I've been using heat therapy and also gentle traction until I reach a Peyronies specialist. Also I think age and activity level have a lot to deal with this. My libido is normal I believe.
