I contracted Dupuytren’s contracture 30 years ago. Did having DC predispose me to PD?

Dr. Levine answers: This is an interesting question, as up to 30% of men with Peyronie’s disease also have Dupuytren’s contracture. It may be that there is a similar genetic process here resulting in a site specific scarring in the hand and in the penis. You might talk to other male family members to determine whether they have evidence of Peyronie’s or DC.

Previous I am a medical student and I’m interested in finding more about Peyronie’s disease. Is it possible to develop PD after transurethral resection of the prostate?
Next I had a piercing in my penis (a PA) a couple of years ago. When I had it stretched to 5 mm, it appears the “lump” in my penis and the bend occurred. Have you heard of this before? Is it coincidental?
