What causes a curved penis?

Curved penis or bent penis generally occurs when sponge-like spaces don’t expand when you become sexually aroused. This is often due to typical differences in penis anatomy, but sometimes scar tissue or another problem causes a bent penis and painful erections.

In most cases, small penile curvatures are considered physiological, as irrelevant from a functional or aesthetic point of view. The properly pathological curved penis can instead cause problems during sexual activity, as it prevents penetration or makes it painful for the partner. Also, it tends to be more easily affected by traumatism.

Possible underlying causes of a Curved penis include:

  1. Peyronie’s disease (a curved erection caused by one of many underlying conditions)
  2. Injury to the penis
  3. Autoimmune disorders
  4. Inherited fibrous tissue (collagen) abnormality

What causes penile curvature?

Penile curvature, when not Peyronie’s disease, is a congenital condition, meaning men are born with it. The deviation can be lateral (to the right or left), dorsal (upwards), or ventral (downwards), and, generally, it is more evident at puberty or in adulthood.

Is a curved penis normal?

It’s common for the penis to curve slightly to the left or right when it’s erect. But if you have a more significant bend in your penis, which may cause you pain or difficulty having sex.

What is Peyronie’s disease?

What is Peyronie's disease?

Peyronie’s disease is a penis problem caused by scar tissue, called plaque, that forms inside the penis. It can result in a bent, rather than straight, erect penis.
Peyronie’s disease causes the penis to become curved when it’s erect. The condition mostly affects men over 40 about 6 out of 100 men, although it can happen at any age. Peyronie’s disease is a penis problem caused by scar tissue, called plaque, that forms inside the penis. It can result in a bent, rather than straight, erect penis.

Most men with Peyronie’s disease can still have sex. But for some, it can be painful and cause erectile dysfunction.

Peyronie’s disease symptoms and signs

Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease may develop slowly or appear overnight. When the penis is soft, you can’t see a problem. But in severe cases, the hardened plaque hampers flexibility, causing pain and forcing the penis to bend or arc when erect. In most cases, the pain eases over time, but the bend in the penis can worsen.

The symptoms of Peyronie’s disease include:

  • The first thing that’s noticed is painful erections. (pain in the non-erect penis is rare)
  • Then over a few months, the penis gets curved or bent: this can be bent upwards (the most common form of Peyronie’s), or bent downwards, or bent to the side.
  • After about a year the curving or bending of the penis will stop and stay the same. At this point, the pain usually goes away.
  • Occasionally the curved penis goes back to normal without any treatment.
  • Usually, the penis looks normal when soft, and the curve or bend is only visible in an erection.
  • a thickened area or hard lump (plaque) in the shaft of the penis (it’s rare to get more than one plaque) 
  • a curve in the penis when it’s erect (usually it curves upwards)
  • the penis looking misshapen, like an hourglass
  • loss of length or girth of the penis 

What causes Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease is likely caused by minor injury to the penis. This type of damage is most often caused by vigorous sex (such as bending the penis during penetration or pressure from a partner’s pubic bone), through sports or other accidents can also cause it. Injury to the tunica albuginea may result in scar tissue forming in the cells. This scar tissue then forms the plaque of Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease is the result of a problem in the way the body heals wounds.

Peyronie’s disease treatments

There is a range of treatment options for Peyronie’s disease – from oral pharmacotherapy to injections, traction, and surgery. However, only a handful of therapy approaches the indicated efficacy when questioned in controlled trials to share the odds. However, the primary purposes of treating this condition should be diminished penile deformity and improved sexual function, with subsequently improved quality of life. Furthermore, the chosen modality of treatment should address the psychological implications of this disease.

Non-surgical Peyronie’s disease treatments


Medications recommended for use in men whose penis curves more than 30 degrees during erection. The treatment involves a series of penile injections that break down the buildup of collagen.

  • Vitamin E has been used for the treatment of Peyronie since 1949. It is thought to reduce oxidative stress, local inflammation, and deposition of collagen (non-elastic tissue) on the plaque. There are several randomized clinical trials in the literature that analyze its effects and results, most of which demonstrate its total absence of benefit. Only one study shows an improvement in the 6 ° in curation compared to the placebo, but this is not a significant figure. 
  • Potaba: it has been used since 1959 as an anti-fibrotic agent. In a randomized study from 2015, a reduction in plaque size was demonstrated but not in deformity/curvature. It is not used frequently because of its side effects and the lack of scientific data demonstrating its effectiveness. 
  • Tamoxifen: works in theory by reducing the formation of fibrosis. It is not recommended for the treatment of Peyronie due to the lack of evidence of significant benefits. 
  • Colchicine: the treatment aims to reduce collagen synthesis. Although there are two crucial studies with opposite results, treatment with this agent can currently be indicated only when used as “combined” therapy (with other drugs) and not as monotherapy. 
  • Carnitine: not indicated in the treatment of Peyronie. 
  • L-Arginine: works by increasing nitric oxide levels inside the plaque and reducing the synthesis of collagen. Although studies proving its usefulness as monotherapy do not hesitate, this shows promising results when used in combination with other agents. 
  • Pentoxifylline: has an anti-fibrotic role. Several authors recommend its use as a combination therapy.

Nondrug treatments

Nondrug Peyronie’s disease treatments are being investigated, such as:

  • shock wave therapy to break up scar tissue
  • penile traction therapy to stretch the penis
  • vacuum devices

Surgical Peyronie’s disease treatments

If you are suffering from or suspect you are suffering from Peyronie’s disease, we recommend that you consult a urologist specialist as soon as possible.

Surgical treatment of Peyronie’s disease has four objectives:

  • Get a straightening of the penis and minimize any residual curvatures
  • Maintain, restore or increase the length and circumference of the penis
  • Maintain or restore normal erectile function
  • Minimize the risk of minor complications such as hematomas, reduced penile sensitivity, etc.

The type of surgery used will depend on your condition. Your doctor will consider scar tissue location, the severity of your symptoms, and other factors. If you’re uncircumcised, your doctor might recommend a circumcision during surgery.

Depending on the type of surgery you have, you might be able to go home from the hospital the same day, or you might need to stay overnight. Your surgeon will advise you on how long you should wait before going back to work — generally, a few days. After surgery for Peyronie’s disease, you’ll need to wait four to eight weeks before sexual activity.
