Three Common Penile Problems, Part I

We all know that men have a very serious connection with their penis, and just because it can be a source of great pleasure, according to, it can be a source of considerable anxiety as well. In this three-part series, I'm going to talk about the most common problems men face. To learn about the first one, Peyronie's disease, just


Peyronie's disease is really just a fancy name for a crooked penis. While it can also present itself as a bump or thickening area, it's most commonly a curvature.

Symptoms include a lump or thickening along the shaft, a bent appearance, a painful erection, an inability to maintain an erection, or the inability to penetrate during sexual intercourse. While the cause of Peyronie's disease is still unknown, some experts believe it's caused by an excess of scar tissue due to an earlier injury (hitting or bending of the penis).

Though Peyronie's disease most often doesn't require treatment (it can go away on its own), vitamin E, injected steroids, or anti-inflammatory drugs can help treat pain and improve sexual function. In severe cases, surgery is considered in order to remove scar tissue or to shorten the unaffected side of the penis.

Pretty interesting, huh? To learn about the other two most-common penile problems, tune in tomorrow and Friday.

This is a very interesting post. I've never really heard too much about it because men certainly aren't going to talk about it.
