Site of curvature: Peyronie's disease occurs when the normally elastic tissue within the penis is replaced with non-elastic "scar" tissue ("plaque"). This can often be felt at the site where the penis is curving: it will be harder than the surrounding tissue.

Every life event...: Every life event always displays itself as a pattern of full spectrum; so does Peyronie's, resulting in a wide range of penile deformity and its related symptoms. Physically, an obvious plaque is palpable and becoming matured over 6-12 months. Despite the tissue change life a scar, most cases are idiopathic with only a few having traceable Hx of penile injury during sexual activity.

Same, but ...: Plaque is a specific descriptive term to denote the shape of the scar of Peyronie's disease, and scar tissue is a general term to describe the common microscopic picture of healing/healed tissue after injury by various reasons, resulting in disruption of local circulation and cell arrangement. The plaque may widely vary in size & shape so some plaques are barely palpable, and others, obvious.
