How Bent?: Almost all penises have some curvature when erect. Small amounts of curvature do not affect function. Severe bends, usually due to trauma or scar tissue, are not as common and may require surgery to make them functional for sex.

10%: Peyronies disease, the bent penis syndrome, affects around 10% of men and can vary in severity.
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Only slight chance: Of developing bend if man grew up with a straight penis. Peyronie's disease or a penile fracture are the 2 causes of a secondary bent penis. Boys born congenital penile chordee and many boys born with hypospadias have a bent penis. Occasional boy has a deviated penis with a sideways bend.

Peyronie's dx: Bent penis is caused by peyronie's disease, a scarring of the corporal bodies or the inner shaft of the penis. A hard plaque or knot may be felt at the bend. Although vitamin E and a drug called potaba may be helpful, severe cases may require surgery. A new injectable drug is available but very expensive and unlikely to be covered by insurance.

Get evaluated.: Penile curvature can be normal with an erection. However, there are certain disorders, such as peyronie's disease, which can cause penile curvature as well. This can range from mild curvature to severe angulation of the penis. If the degree of bend is interfering with intercourse or with urination, see a urologist for evaluation.
