What You Need to Know About Penile Curvature
What are the Causes of Penile Curvature?
Common causes of penile curvature or bent penis include congenital penile curvature, frenulum breve, penile torsion, Peyronie’s disease, scar tissue after circumcision, penoscrotal webbing.
Penile curvature is very common and if mild and does not cause any functional problems may not require treatment.
What is Congenital Penile Curvature?
The congenital penile curvature is a common finding in men. Typically, the penis is a little curved when fully erect. Men typically recall that they always have had this minor curvature. Less commonly, the curvature may be lifelong but more severe and may require treatment.
What is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease is caused by scar formation in the penis. Scar ‘contraction‘ causes the penis to curve. Sometimes men may experience pain/injury to the penis prior to the appearance of scar tissue and curvature but many men do not recall any injury to the penis.
What is Frenulum Breve of the Penis?
Frenulum of the penis is a skin connection between the glans penis and the shaft of the penis. It is located on the underneath of the penis. In men who have short frenulum or if it shortens due to inflammation/scarring, the tip of the penis “glans” may curve down when the penis is fully erect. Penile frenuloplasty can cure this problem. Penile frenuloplasty is performed at New York Urology Specialists.
What is Penoscrotal Webbing?
Penoscrotal web is higher than the normal connection between the penis and the scrotum.
What is Torsion of the Penis?
Torsion of the penis refers to rotation of the penis usually counterclockwise so that urethral opening looks sideways. The problem is usually congenital (men are born with it), but may occur after penile surgery.
