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 After a biking trauma I have erectile dysfunction and pain when sitting. Erections are rare without desire and my penis is curved and sticks to my body. I am 22, do I suffer from PD?
Next I have been riding a bicycle for 60+ years, and continue to ride daily. I often have penile numbness after a period of time in the saddle. Could this be a cause of PD, and cause further exacerbation of my PD? Do you have any recommendations on bicycle saddles, or bicycle types, that would hep reduce penile numbness/trauma? Thank you.
