I’m 65, have had minor PD symptoms in the way of excessive swelling during erection & slight pain and slight curvature of the tip of the penis beginning about 6 months ago with no injury as the cause. My urologist detected a slight mass at the base of my penis on the top side. I have a history of keloid scarring from two surgeries and successfully reduced scarring to minimum by repetitive, aggressive massaging of the scars. Might this work with PD?

Keloid scarring is not at all the same problem as what occurs with Peyronie’s disease. Men with Peyronie’s disease rarely have keloids and vice versa. Therefore, although it may feel better and may result in some benefit, there is no clear evidence that massage is beneficial for preventing progression of Peyronie’s disease. Should you notice that there is progression of your deformity or worsening of pain, then more definitive evaluation and treatment is in order, and can be obtained by consultation with an expert in PD.

Previous I’m 56 and was diagnosed with PD 9 years ago. I am diabetic, and was also diagnosed with Dupuytren’s contracture. In the last few years, my erections have really shrunk. I used to have about a 6-inch erection now my erections are about the size of my thumb (both in length and thickness). My wife and I haven’t had sex in about 6 years and I can’t even discuss this with her. Over the last 13 months I have added Plavix, Toprol XL, and Zocor to the insulin I take. Is there anything that can help me or is there something else coming along in the next year or two?
Next I’ve had Peyronie’s disease for about 6 years. I can still get adequate erections and achieve intromission. However, there appears to be loss of sensation on one side of the penis which makes it difficult to reach orgasm, causing frustration for me and my partner. Could this be treated and/or reversed?
