I am 22. When I see my erect penis, it is curved to the left (slight curve). I feel no pain or lumps during masturbation. Should I seek treatment?

Dr. Levine answers: It is likely that the slight curvature that you see is a natural curve seen in many men. In fact, a curvature of less than 30 degrees in any direction is considered within the normal range, as it is not likely to interfere with sexual activity. Men who notice a lifelong history of curvature, which is severe enough to interfere with coitus, likely have a form of congenital deformity known as chordee. The only available treatment for this type of penile deformity is surgical straightening.

Previous How long is the inflammatory period of Peyronie’s before a hard plaque can be detected?
Next I am 23 years old, and I think I have Peyronie’s. I have a significant bend and three inflamed soft scars on the right on the side of my shaft. The bend is about 45 degrees to the left and very apparent upon erection. However, I do not have any pain when I get an erection and the lumps are soft, not hard. I have been pretty stable with the condition for three years, but I am trying to find an alternative way to treat this. I have taken Potaba with no success. I am currently on vitamin E and I am noticing no difference. I read up on the serrapetase, nattokinase and bromelain for dissolving scar tissue. Is there anything I can do to help this condition?
