Peyronie's Disease: is internal scarring of the penis resulting in curvature and/or pain upon erection. The pain, curve, or blood constriction can cause ED. Many cases resolve on their own. Others need medication or surgery. Vitamin E studies have not been very positive. Here's a link http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400667/For-Men-Only-Peyronies-Disease.html Usually men over 50 get this. Peace and good health.

Here are...: Thus far, what we've known is as follows: The "scar formation" - Peyronie's plaque - interferes the proper shut-off of venous flow to maintain and sustain the high blood pressure inside corpora cavernosa as penile arteries inflow for erection. Besides, at age goes, many affected men may have some dysfunction of local vessels and nerves for regulating erection so ED ensues. More? Ask Doc timely.
