Peyronie’s disease is a condition that is characterized by the formation of plaque underneath the skin of your penis, which causes your penis to bend upward, downward, or to the side. It can lead to erectile dysfunction and make it difficult – or in some cases, downright impossible – for you to have sexual intercourse.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
The exact cause of the disease remains unknown, but there are several factors that can contribute to the formation of plaques in the penis, which in turn leads to Peyronie’s disease.
Injury to the Penis
It is one of the most common causes of Peyronie’s disease in men. If you injure your penis while having vigorous sex with your partner or as a result of an accident, it can lead to a scar tissue buildup in your penis.
Accumulation of scar tissue on the top or dorsal side can cause your penis to curve upwards. If it is on the bottom, it can cause your penis to curve downwards. If it is on the side, it can cause your penis to curve sideways.
In some cases, there might be a significant amount of scar tissue buildup all-around your penis, which can cause the shaft of your penis to narrow considerably.
Other factors that are known to cause Peyronie’s disease include
- Autoimmune disorders
- Connective tissue disorders
- A family history of Peyronie’s disease
- Prostate cancer treatment
What are the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease?
The most common symptoms of the disease include
- Penile curvature
- Narrowed shaft
- Hard plaques or lumps that can be felt through the skin of the penis
- A sense of discomfort or pain in the penis, especially when it is erect
In addition to this, you are also likely to exhibit erectile dysfunction symptoms like soft erections or the inability to maintain an erection for as long as you want.
How to Treat Peyronie’s Disease?
One of the most effective treatments currently available for Peyronie’s disease is GainsWave – a shockwave therapy that is designed to break up the plaques in your penis and stimulate the growth of healthy erectile tissue.
In this treatment, high-frequency, low-intensity shockwaves are directed at your penis to break down the buildup of scar tissue and to remove the micro plaques in the blood vessels. It can increase blood flow to your genitals, reduce penile curvature to a considerable extent, and help you achieve fuller, longer-lasting erections.
The treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive, and does not require you to take any medications. It only takes about 20 to 30 minutes and does not cause any adverse side effects in the vast majority of cases. It gives better results than penile injections and is far less risky than surgical solutions.
This is why GainsWave is widely considered one of the most effective erectile dysfunction treatments available today. The all-natural GainsWave treatment is offered by Superior T, which is one of the most reputable and trusted sexual health and wellness clinics for men in Texas.
