I was kicked in the penis six weeks ago. I was diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease this week. I have not had intercourse in a year or more. Could the injury have caused the Peyronie’s disease?

Dr. Levine answers: It appears that the most common cause for triggering Peyronie’s disease is local trauma to the penis, which most commonly occurs during sexual activity when the penis is erect, but a man may develop Peyronie’s disease following a direct trauma to the penis that can occur from a kick, motor vehicle accident or a variety of other situations. Regardless if the individual is susceptible to Peyronie’s disease, the trauma may trigger the abnormal wound healing process, which ultimately results in the Peyronie’s plaque.

Previous I have had a penile curvature for 2 years that also has great pain. Is it a normal side effect of PD to have pain this long or is there another cause to consider?
Next In any of the cases you’ve seen, is stress indicated as a possible trigger for Peyronie’s? I ask, because in me its appearance coincided with a very stressful period of my life.
