I suffered a penile injury six years ago and was diagnosed with Peyronie’s but since then have been told that I am healed. I continue to see a deformity on and off. Is this permanent or will this too eventually go away.

It may be that you never did have Peyronie’s disease, as most men who develop true Peyronie’s disease develop a scar which does not completely resolve spontaneously. Other processes which might result in more complete resolution may be a “slow healing wound” which ultimately resolves. Deformity of the penis associated with Peyronie’s is not a come and go kind of problem. Typically, as a result of the scarring, it prevents expansion of the involved tissue, resulting in the deformity, which would be seen consistently with erection. Therefore, if it is a problem which is intermittent, this may reflect either variability in the quality of your erection or a non-Peyronie’s type problem.

Previous I recently developed some curving in my penis. The penis is slightly curved even when not erect or aroused. Also there is some difficulty in urination. How likely is it that this is PD? Also should I completely stop masturbation?
