This deformity may indeed be a manifestation of Peyronie’s disease. This would be determined by physical examination in the flaccid condition where a palpable scar may be noted towards the end of the shaft below the head of the penis on the right side for you. A right sided scar would prevent expansion of the penis on that aspect resulting in the right tilt. It is also possible that if there is no palpable scar, that there may be some disproportion to the elasticity of the penis on the left side, allowing greater expansion on the left, causing the tilting to the right. If the tilt is significant and interferes with sexual activity or causes cosmetic distress, this can be readily repaired with a simple outpatient operation.
