I suffered a penile injury six years ago and was diagnosed with peyronies 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.

Peyronie’s disease does not typically result in an intermittent deformity. It is due to a scar within the jacket tissue (tunica albuginea) around the vascular tissue of the penis. If the scar is persistent, this would suggest Peyronie’s disease, and in the area of the scar, there is diminished elasticity resulting in the noted deformity. The variation that you may be noticing may be due to the variability in the rigidity of the penis; the more rigid you get, the more apt you are to see the deformity, which may worsen with greater rigidity. If the deformity is not interfering with sexual function, then no further treatment is necessary, and importantly, over the long term, 3-5 years, often times, mild Peyronie’s plaques, simply resolve.

Previous 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.
Next I was diagnosed in 2000 with PD. My original doctor suggested I let time pass and see what happens. Luckily, I listened to others and went to a specialist. I was treated with medicine for a year and the pain eventually went away. About 3 weeks ago, I began noticing a burning pain, but it had come from time to time as I healed, but I have no other problems. My question is, can the pain that I am feeling now be the result of some remaining scar tissue loosening, or am I headed for another bout of PD?
