No: There is variation in the size of penis, as with other body features. It is how to approach and treat your partner that is more important than your size. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

You're fine: That's a little smaller than the average guy but perfectly use-able. A smaller guy gets harder and has been control over stimulating the woman's best nerve endings which are up front. You won't be too big for any potential partner, and it's a plus if you're receiving oral love. Don't compare yourself with the "perfect bodies" or freaky guys that you may see online, and be glad for health.

Yes: in all likelihood what you're describing is Peyronie's disease. I recommend you be evaluated by a urologist
