Twisted in Two Directions: The Physical and Emotional Suffering of Peyronie's Disease
Peyronie's disease, also known as Induration Penis Plastica, is a condition characterized by the formation of scar tissue inside the penis. This scar tissue can cause the penis to bend or curve during erections, leading to pain and difficulty with intercourse.
This physical suffering is accompanied by emotional suffering as well. Many men feel embarrassed or ashamed about their diagnosis, making it difficult to discuss it with partners or seek medical help.
Some experts believe that plaque buildup in the penis, usually caused by physical trauma or injury, is to blame for those exaggerated curves. Others think it could be a result of genetics or even autoimmune disorders. The bottom line? We just don't know for sure. But one thing's for certain: if you notice any significant bending or shortening of your member, it's time to see a doctor pronto. Don't let Peyronie's plague your member any longer!
Peyronie's disease usually progresses through two phases: an acute phase in which symptoms first appear and worsen rapidly, followed by the chronic phase during which the pain usually goes away, but you may still have a bend or marked shortening in your penis. To diagnose Peyronie’s disease properly though physical exams will take place so that scar tissue can be determined as well as effective treatments discussed with them!
And unfortunately, while there are treatments available, they do not work for everyone and hold major complications.
Urologists usually offer a range of treatment options for Peyronie's disease, including surgical excision. The downside? It will still leave you with some scars and may lead to an hour-glass shaped appearance after surgery! The only other FDA-approved choice is Xiaflex injections which can dissolve fibrous tissue but has their risks too - like dissolving part of your own penis if used incorrectly or administering more than the required amount at one time (which could result in a Fracture Penis).
At Better Life Clinics, we've got two minimally invasive treatments that have shown incredible results in hundreds of studies worldwide. The P-Shot, and Acoustic wave Therapy (AWT). Both the P-shot injections as well as AWT can break down scar tissue causing Peyronies disease symptoms - so-called due to its appearance on penile X-rays!
What do these therapies involve? There's no need for surgery or major recovery time with either treatment because they're quite efficient at doing what needs to be done without incising skin surfaces or causing pain.
If you're struggling with intimacy and noticing visible changes in your penis, it shouldn't have to be a big deal. We know how embarrassing this can feel! But if that's what is making life difficult for YOU- then don’t worry because our board-certified medical director will evaluate you. Together he will tailor a treatment plan giving you the best solution possible to get back to enjoying painless and stronger erections that last longer than ever before!
