All About Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie's disease (PD) is a condition in which a plaque forms on the penis after trauma or with chronic inflammation. It causes hardened tissue, pain, and an abnormal bending in the penis, which results in pain with erection and sexual dysfunction. Below, you will find information and resources on PD.
What Are the Symptoms of Peyronie's Disease?
Symptoms 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.
Some men with the condition develop scar tissue elsewhere in the body, such as on the hand or foot. Men with Dupuytren's contractures -- scarring in the hand that affects fingers -- seem to be more likely to get Peyronie's.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
Doctors don’t know exactly why Peyronie's disease happens. Many researchers believe the fibrous plaque can start after trauma (hitting or bending) that causes bleeding inside the penis. You might not notice the injury or trauma.
Other cases, which develop over time, may be linked to genes. In some men, injury and genes could both be involved.
Some medications list Peyronie's disease as a possible side effect. But there is no proof that these drugs cause the condition.
Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease
Historically, Peyronie’s has been treated via invasive surgery. But, The P-Treatment for Men offers a radically different, and infinitely more comfortable solution! Dr. Dunn curated an integrative protocol, which incorporates, PRP (stem cell) injections, ESWT (shockwave therapy), mitochondrial health, pharmacology, and supplements. Additionally, during treatment, she applies proven wellness modalities to enhance your body’s ability to heal (such as acupuncture and meditation visors.)
The results are healthier tissue, plaque reduction (or complete disintegration), improved vasculature and greater enjoyment during sex!
