While the symptoms that can be encountered in the case of penile curvature can sometimes be felt and seen, sometimes they can occur as a result of a physical examination by the physician. We can list these symptoms as follows:
- Pain during erection,
- Small and hard tissues on the back or body of the penis,
- Erectile dysfunction or difficulty maintaining an erection
- Visible curvature in the form of the penis,
- Reduction in penis size,
- Difficulty having sexual intercourse.
If the curvature of the penis develops due to the Sunnah of the Prophet, symptoms such as inability to urinate forward, scattered urination, frequent urination, difficulty urinating or feeling burning while urinating may occur.
Treatment of penile curvature is also done according to the cause of the curvature and the severity of the curvature. If the curvature of the penis is caused by the sunnah of the prophet, the only way to solve the problem is surgery. During this surgical procedure, the urinary hole is moved to where it should be, and if the curvature has developed, this situation is corrected.
In the acute phase of penile curvature (Peyronie's) disease that develops later, drug treatments and NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory) drugs or PDE-5 inhibitors can be used for the complaints of the disease. Shock wave therapy (SWT) can be applied in this phase.
In patients who have passed the active phase, the disease has not progressed for at least 3 months, and the penile deformity has not progressed, different treatments can be applied according to penile curvature-deformity and accompanying erection problem.
The curvature is corrected by surgery in patients with severe deformity and no loss of erection. Penile prosthesis is placed in the same session for those with concomitant erectile dysfunction. In patients who are not suitable for surgery or do not want surgery, drug injections (Clostridium histolyticum collagenase, interferon) can be applied to the plaque.
With the right physician choice and the right technique, successful results can be obtained from penile curvature surgery.
