I was told that if you had a curve in your penis, it had nothing to do with it not sitting comfortable in your pants when you're having an erection, yet I read this: Quote:A cross-section of the penis (left) displays the internal cavity that runs the length of the penis and is divided into two chambers (corpora cavernosa) by a vertical connecting tissue known as a septum. It is believed that, during trauma such as bending, bleeding might occur at a point of attachment of the septum to tissue lining the chamber wall (center). The bleeding results in a hard scar, which is characteristic of Peyronie’s disease. The scar reduces flexiblility on one side of the penis during erection, leading to curvative (right).Source: http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/peyronie/index.htmI had no idea. Whenever it hurts a bit down there during some random erection, I never give it any thought as I was told it was harmless.
Reason of Curving
Key word is TRAUMA.... Normal bending is not trauma.
And normal curvature is very different from Peyronie's disease. In normal curvature there is no scar tissue.
What qualifies as trauma?Would a bruise have to show?Thanks for the reply by the way, I feel kind of stupid posting it now. I just felt that all those years I had had a false sense of security EDIT: I thought the scar tissue talked about was inside, so impossible to see, and the picture on that page doesn't look much different - or maybe I just don't know
I'm not really qualified to say exactly, but the injury/blow I would think, would need to be fairly significant.
The actual cause of a curved penis -- unrelated to trauma or pyronie's disease -- is due to the growth of the penis itself.
The penis curves left or right when the two sides of the penis do not grow symmetrically. Being one side grows more or faster than the other.
Just throwing that out there for those who didn't know.
