Penile curvature is a condition in which the penis exhibits an abnormal curvature during erection. This curvature can be congenital, meaning present from birth, or acquired, developing later in life.
Acquired penile curvature occurs when an individual develops an abnormal curvature of the penis later in life, often due to a traumatic event or a medical condition. Common causes of acquired penile curvature include diseases such as Peyronie's disease, penile trauma, or previous surgeries.
Symptoms of congenital penile curvature include an abnormal curvature of the penis during erection. The curvature can vary in intensity and direction, with some individuals having a mild curvature and others having a more pronounced curvature. In some cases, the curvature may cause pain or difficulty in sexual intercourse.
Symptoms of acquired penile curvature are similar to those of congenital penile curvature and include an abnormal curvature of the penis during erection. However, in acquired penile curvature, the curvature may develop gradually over time and may be associated with pain, difficulty in sexual intercourse, or erectile dysfunction.
To determine the most appropriate treatment for congenital and acquired penile curvature, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
