The bent penis continues to be the bane of many men, as most men suffering from this disorder are afraid to even approach a doctor due to the perceived social stigma attached with it. In fact, it would be wrong to even call the condition a disorder at all, as a lot of men have this condition.Possible causes of a bent penis include:
Inherited collagen abnormality.
Injury to the penis.
Medications, especially beta blockers.
Peyronie's disease is the most common cause of bent penis. It is an ailment where the internal tissue of the penis gets infected and turns to scar tissue, resulting sometimes in dramatic bending of the penis in any one direction. The disease is generally caused by the development of a hard tissue on one side, resulting in the penis bending severely.In most cases, a bent penis doesn't require evaluation or treatment. However, a severely bent penis or curvature that causes pain or interferes with sexual activity should be checked out by a doctor who specializes in sexual and urinary problems (urologist).Despite the reluctance of most men to take some remedial action, having a bent penis is a problem that can be surely solved. Of several methods advocated by experts, certain exercises can help straighten a bent penis, or even surgery may be done in some cases. The success of the latter in either enlarging or straightening the penis is, however, a most unconvincing proposition at best.The specialty of the exercises is that they have no side effects, and they can be comfortably performed in the privacy of a man's home. No special guidance or devices are required for them. It is an all-natural method of penis straightening with zero levels of risk involved.No non-surgical treatment for Peyronie's exists. And steer clear of any physician recommending bizarre treatments, including steroid injections into the plaques (which don't help). Radiation and ultrasound are of no benefit. Oral potaba, which is often prescribed in huge quantities, is of no benefit.When the disease process stops, there is usually some residual distortion of the penis but the vast majority of patients are able to function adequately sexually. However, if there is enough distortion of the penis to preclude sexual intercourse, surgery is possible.
