This incredibly rare condition begins from birth. The congenital penile curvature is not diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease because it does not occur due to a build-up of scar tissue. The disease causes men to have a curved penis every time they have an erection, and the curvature appears to not decrease as the patients get older.
Unlike Peyronie’s disease (that can occur because of an injury to the penis later on in a man’s life), this curvature is present in patients from the moment they are born.
Men born with penile curvature exhibit signs of a curved penis when it becomes erect. Also, the problem of curving will have occurred ever since their first erection. Moreover, the curved penis can cause erections, and sexual intercourse, to become very painful.
Treating this condition depends on the form of the curvature. If there is severe curving that stops the patient from having sexual intercourse, they are recommended surgical treatments that can correct the curvature. However, if the patient’s curvature is mild, and does not cause pain during an erection or sexual intercourse, then usually no surgery or medication is required.
