Peyronie’s is a scarring disorder of the tunica albuginea, which is the fibrous jacket tissue around the vascular tissue of the penis. The scar tissue can be distributed in a variety of ways, but typically, is either a nodule, cord-like, or can course throughout the shaft of the penis. Having 7 separate lumps is unusual, and if it is only something that is seen in the ultrasound, it may be an over-read. Certainly, the most important aspect is what is palpated during a physical exam with the flaccid penis on stretch, and most importantly, what is noted in terms of deformity when the penis is erect. If there is limited deformity which does not interfere with your sexual function, and causes you and your partner no pain, then I can assure you that nothing needs to be done at this time.

Previous I have had Peyronie’s disease for 7 years and have recently noticed my penis shrinking in the flaccid state and becoming hard all over. When I get an erection my penis is bent 45 degrees to the right and when semi-erect it won’t get fully hard. Is the scar preventing the corpus cavernosum from expanding or is the corpus cavernosum actually turning into fibrous tissue as well? What is the cause of this shrinkage effect?
Next I recently developed some curving in my penis. The penis is slightly curved even when not erect or aroused. Also there is some difficulty in urination. How likely is it that this is PD? Also should I completely stop masturbation?
