new plaque
« on: August 11, 2019, 11:09:45 AM »

Hello all,

39 y/o with odd presentation. I posted initially in December 2018 as I had a dorsal plaque but no pain or curve.  I had an mri which was completely normal.  At that time i had a biopsy.  It's a long story but was biopsied in the wrong spot and had to be redone.  I'm still not sure if my doctor biopsied the right spot. 

Anyways, after that I saw dr. Levine who said i just have peyronies, get on pentox etc.  I had been stable until last week I noticed a BB size lump up toward the base of my penis deep in the middle.  I'm not sure if this is on the septum.  I'm pretty sure it wasn't there before. 

I have a follow up with dr Levine next week.  Do you guys think this is weird that a new plaque would pop up this late after my initial one?  I dont remember any new trauma (same as the first plaque). Should I ask dr. Levine to redo the biopsy?

It is different for everyone. My plaque has grown considerably. Some have continuing reactive periods. Some are stable for long periods of time. It varies. And new plaque doesn't always equate to new or worsening deformity. It's not a 1:1 type of thing. Not sure what you mean by biopsy. Assume you mean ultrasound?

Onset of symptoms pain (stinging like a wasp) was @ 6/2018. Do not remember how curve developed. Pain upon erection.

My main concern was to rule out cancer given I an young and never had injury plus no initial curve.  I'm wondering if others have had plaques pop up when they technically should be in a stable phase.  In wondering if this is just peyronies or I should be concerned for something else like sarcoma.

For some (rare) there is no such thing as a "stable" phase. As far as cancer, nobody can diagnose that from behind a keyboard. But very unlikely. Go to a qualified doctor. Particularly a peyronie's specialist.
