What are the treatment options for Peyronie's disease?

If you have a milder form of the disease, are not experiencing any pain in the penile region and are not sexually active, it is possible for you to choose not to have any treatment for the disease. This is not recommended, but is an option for those who have no difficulties having sexual intercourse.




This is the technical name for the method used to stretch the penile tissue. A device is worn on the penis in order to stretch it to improve the length and lessen the deformity.


Penis Pumps


This causes traction in the penis which works the same as the previous device. A vacuum is created around the shaft of the penis to improve shape and length.


Oral medication


Medicine taken by mouth is usually prescribed to those with this condition. It usually includes the following: para-aminobenzoate, colchicine, propoleum, pentoxifylline, vitamin E, tamoxifen and acetyl-L carnitin. However, the para-aminobenzoate is only used under UK license for those who have Peyronie's Disease.


Topical medication


Medicine which is applied on the surface of the penis where the lump is has proved some success. Something known as a topical verapamil has had successful results after prolonged use. Patients who used this type of medication saw an improvement in the shape and curvature of their penis in about 9 months or more. It improves the scar tissue by lessening the thickening of the injured area.


Injectable medication


Medicine such as verapamil has been used to treat this condition. It is directly injected in the plaque of the penis and has proved to deliver some results with those suffering from pain in their penile shaft. Results have shown to improve the bend of the penis and reduce the pain caused by the buckling around the penile lump.


Electrical currents


Iontophoresis, which is the medical term for this procedure is when electrical currents are delivered to the penis. This is done after the application of medication is spread on the penis surface. This type of procedure aims to penetrate deep into the tissue of the penis in order to improve the penis where it is greatly affected.


Studies have shown no significant results for this procedure, while other doctors claim it is an effective means of treating the problem.




This is the most effective means of treating the condition. It can only be done once the disease has reached a mature stage, which is probably around 12 - 18 months after the first symptoms start to manifest. However, surgery does not come without any risks, as there is a chance of permanent penile distortion and there can be further shortening of the erect penis. Those who have tight skin around their penis might need to be circumcised before surgery can take place.
