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?

Dr. Levine answers: Any traumatic event to the penis could possibly activate Peyronie’s disease in the susceptible individual. It is not exactly clear to me where your piercing is located on the penis, but usually it is in the area of the urethral opening of the penis which is well out of the area where Peyronie’s disease occurs. Therefore, it is more likely that you had a separate, maybe silent injury to the penis most during intercourse that activated this process and therefore I think it is more likely coincidental and not due to the piercing.

Previous I contracted Dupuytren’s contracture 30 years ago. Did having DC predispose me to PD?
Next I have been diagnosed with Peyronie’s for 5 years. During this whole time, I have experience continual pain that diminishes with steroids or Torodal. This pain disrupts my normal life. Have you any comments or suggestions to help the pain to subside and is this much pain associated with PD?
