I am 36 years old, I am able to get an erection, but it does not appear to have the same shape when I am lying on back, and when I try to correct this, it hurts. What can I do?

Dr. Levine answers: It is unclear as to whether you have developed Peyronie’s disease or some other type of scarring within the penis causing the deformity. This is certainly something that should be evaluated by a urologist with an interest in sexual dysfunction, as if Peyronie’s disease is discovered, it may be worthy of some form of nonsurgical treatment.

Previous Along with the indentation, and the lump when I am flaccid, I also have trouble maintaining fuller erections, and I have noticed pain at times even when flaccid. Is it safe to try and maintain erections, masturbate and/or have sex?
Next I was diagnosed with PD about 2.5 years ago. Today the pain is gone, and I have sex although my penis is never as hard as it was before. I was wondering what were the chances, if any, of the PD recurring?
