Penile Pain is a Common Symptom in Men with Peyronie’s Disease Especially During Early Stages of Disease.

Peyronie's diseasePain in the penis caused by Peyronie’s disease may be challenging to treat.  A number of treatment options are available.  Medications such as Potaba, pentoxifylline, as well as intralesional injection of verapamil, have been shown to be beneficial in men with penile pain.   

Pain caused by Peyronie’s disease typically occurs when the penis is erect or during sex.  The pain usually goes away as soon as the erection is lost.

In some men, pain may be the first and only symptom of Peyronie’s disease.  In other men, penile pain with erections may be accompanied by penile curvature or penile plaque.  In other men, penile curvature may become noticeable after the appearance of penile pain.

Medications such as Cialis and Viagra may also be helpful.

Penile traction devices appear to also help with the resolution of penile pain and may be beneficial when combined with manual penile remodeling.

Studies show that low-energy shockwave therapy can also help with the resolution of pain associated with Peyronie’s disease but does not help with curvature.  Shockwave therapy is available at New York Urology Specialists.

Best Options for Treatment of Penile Pain from Peyronie’s

Medications such as Cialis and Viagra have also been shown to be beneficial in men who experienced penile pain and have Peyronie’s disease as well as erectile dysfunction.  At New York Urology Specialists, we have found these medications to be very effective for many men.

Potaba (Potassium para-aminobenzoate) can also be used for the treatment of penile pain.  Shockwave therapy of the penis can also be used to treat penile pain caused by Peyronie’s disease.

Specific treatment for Peyronie’s disease alleviates penile pain as it helps with a resolution of the underlying process. Our patients often feel improvement or resolution of penile pain symptoms within a few weeks to 2 months after initiation of therapy.

Pain in the penis should not be ignored. Pain is an early sign of Peyronie’s disease. Early treatment of Peyronie’s disease can prevent it from getting more severe and can prevent such unpleasant side effects as penile shortening from Peyronie’s disease.
