It seems that the onset of PD occurred within a few weeks of having a cystoscopy. Could this have been the factor in getting my PD?

Dr. Levine answers: It is unlikely that any type of urethral manipulation would trigger Peyronie’s disease unless it resulted in a downward or ventral bend of the penis. This would suggest that urethral trauma may have activated some inflammation and scarring on the undersurface of the penis causing the downward curve. Most men who present with Peyronie’s disease have either an upward or lateral curve, which may have been triggered by other silent trauma. Therefore it is highly unlikely that this was due to any type of urethral manipulation including cystoscopy.

Previous Is there any correlation between other autoimmune disorders, such as lichen planus for example, and the occurrence of PD, or the prognosis of the condition?
Next Since trauma and micro-trauma are widely accepted as a major cause of PD, what is believed to be the level of risk from intralesional verapamil (ILV) treatments? Also, does the aging process make the tunica more subject to damage from ILV treatments?
