 4 Smart Ways to Manage Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s disease can cause significant penile pain, distress, and embarrassment. But you don’t need to suffer in silence with this treatable problem — here are four simple ways you can effectively manage the condition.

Talking about intimate parts of the body isn’t easy, especially when they seem “not normal.” However, without these conversations, people often miss out on the treatment strategies that can address the issue. Sadly, experts assume this is often the case with Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s disease involves the penis and scar tissue. When scar tissue forms inside the penis, it causes a curve to develop as well as bent erections. For many men, this makes sexual encounters uncomfortable and even painful. Worse yet, it can leave people feeling as if their body betrayed them, which triggers distress, depression, and anxiety.

Signs of Peyronie’s disease include:

  • Penile pain, with or without an erection
  • Shortening of the penis
  • Significant bend to the penis
  • Hard bumps or bands of scar tissue under the skin of the penis
  • Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
  • Penile deformities, like indentations or an hour-glass shape to the shaft

Our team at Salutem Bio-Performance, Inc., offers advanced diagnostic testing and treatments that address all aspects of men’s health, including sensitive topics like erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.

Have you noticed penile changes that could indicate Peyronie’s disease? Here are a few ways to manage your condition.

1. Get support

The most important thing you can do if you notice signs of Peyronie’s disease is to seek professional help. Not only can a doctor offer treatment options, but it’s essential to find support for the stress and emotional challenges this condition can cause.

Support for Peyronie’s disease might include:

Peyronie’s disease may cause pain and distress, but the right support can provide tools to ease your symptoms and emotional strain.

2. Medication

When you have Peyronie’s disease, medications could help. You either take these drugs orally or injected directly into the penis. In some cases, medications get used in combination with other therapies intended to reduce curvature and pain.

3. Shockwave therapy

In addition to medication, shockwave therapy could provide relief. This therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), uses painless shock waves to break up scar tissue, trigger cell production, improve circulation, and relieve pain.

A shockwave therapy session usually takes 45 minutes or less, and we may recommend a series of treatments to provide the best results.

4. Surgery

If you have severe or disabling Peyronie’s disease symptoms, we may recommend surgery. There are a variety of surgical procedures to address this condition, ranging from removing scar tissue to inserting a prosthetic penile device. 

At the end of the day, you don’t have to suffer in silence with Peyronie’s disease. If you’ve noticed the signs of this condition, we can make personalized treatment recommendations to address your symptoms.
