What are the differences between penile plaque, sebaceous cyst, & epidermal cyst on penile shaft? Or, are they same? Thanks.

Different: Although the sebaceous and epidermal cyst are nearly the same, the plaque is deeper in the layers of the layers of tissue of the penile shaft.

I have multiple under the skin "cysts" or plaques (1-2 cm)" on the penile shaft around glans. I am otherwise normal. What are treatments? Thanks.

I have multiple under the skin "cysts" or plaques (1-2 cm)" on the penile shaft around glans. I am otherwise normal. What are treatments? Thanks.

Cysts/Penile Shaft: If the patient remains asymptomatic, and generally, it does not get in the way with either urinary or sexual function no treatment is necessary. The only time that you need to get rid of sebaceous cyst on shaft is when there is complication caused by trauma or infection and this would require surgery.

If I notice Peyronie's disease plaque on my penis. Should my penis definitely bend when erect?

UsuAlly bends: The 2 main symptoms of Peyronies is curvature on erection and penile pain on erection. Usually there is a bend but might only be slight and barely noticeable

I may have a plaque in penis as my penis curves more than before&sometimes I feel a little pain when penis is flaccid. Will this plaque increase?

I may have a plaque in penis as my penis curves more than before&sometimes I feel a little pain when penis is flaccid. Will this plaque increase?

Listen to your body: Peyronie's disease is an uncommon disease that occurs generally in men between 40 to 60 years of age. The disease is associated with curvature with erection and difficulty with penetration. Re-evaluate what is going on. Pain when the penis is flaccid would not be from peyronie's disease but could be caused by irritation of the urethra from masturbation.

Please explain what fibrous plaque looks like on a penis?

Please explain what fibrous plaque looks like on a penis?

Here are some...: Fibrous plaque is designated to describe the hardened tissue developed in certain part of the confinement of penile sponge bodies leading to its poor extensibility and penile curvature at erection, i.e., Peyronie's disease. The size, location, & extent of its occurrence widely vary along its course of development, evolution, etc. So leading to wide range of symptoms and curvature. More? Ask...

Diagnosed by feel: Fibrous plaque, as occurs with Peyronie's disease, can be felt on the upper side of penile shaft. Penis will also tend to curve upwards with erection.

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top (dorsal) of my penis?

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top (dorsal) of my penis?

Penile Trauma: If you had trauma on the right side of the penis you would not develop a Peyronies plaque dorsally. I must say, I have never seen a 16 year old with Peyronie's disease and I doubt that what you are feeling is relating to Peyronie's disease. You should see a physician to help determine what you are feeling.

How long does it take for Peyronie's disease plaque to develop after a trauma to the penis? It's been 6 months and no palpable plaque on injury site

How long does it take for Peyronie's disease plaque to develop after a trauma to the penis? It's been 6 months and no palpable plaque on injury site

No worries: It lists in your conditions that you have "bent penis" & that you were seen by a urologist. You are 16.The bend, assuming it is gentle curve & not 30 or more degrees is most likely cogenital curvature. If there was a plaque the urologist would have felt it or obtained an ultrasound. If a plaque was going to happen it would have done so in 6 months. Relax.

If a teen is going through puberty and gets peyronie's disease. If he gets plaque removal surgery, then can his penis still grow larger after?

If a teen is going through puberty and gets peyronie's disease. If he gets plaque removal surgery, then can his penis still grow larger after?

Question Peyronie's: This would be very unusual for a teenager & thus wonder if this is an accurate diagnosis. Teen in question may have upward curvature of his penis as a congenital defect. If so might be amenable to some surgical correction. Second opinion by an experienced pediatric urologist might be considered. Penis will noe grow larger if puberty incomplete.

Did wearing restrictive briefs until after puberty cause my penis, when erect, to curve straight up? No plaques or pain so don't think it's peyronie's

Did wearing restrictive briefs until after puberty cause my penis, when erect, to curve straight up? No plaques or pain so don't think it's peyronie's

No: I don't think so, but, then again, there really isn't any way to prove your theory. The real question should be, does it matter? If the curvature isn't painful to you or your partner, it probably isn't a big deal.

If a tern gets peyronies disease and is still going through puberty; can his penis still grow after plaque removal surgery?

If a tern gets peyronies disease and is still going through puberty; can his penis still grow after plaque removal surgery?

Unknown: There are many studies of penises and much work studying terns. However, I am unaware of any study of the terns' penises. Most birds do not have a penis. Most birds have a little lump called a cloaca. So it is unlikely a tern would get peyronies disease.

Does Peyronies disease always present itself with noticeable plaques or scar tissue on the flaccid penis? Or are there cases with no plaques but bend?

Does Peyronies disease always present itself with noticeable plaques or scar tissue on the flaccid penis? Or are there cases with no plaques but bend?

Yes: You may have congenital curvature from chordee or corporal mismatch. But not all bent penises are from Peyronie's plaque.

Can a man's mind and brain impulses affect the penis tissue? Or is it just blood flow? This question is in regards to peyronies plaque

Can a man's mind and brain impulses affect the penis tissue? Or is it just blood flow? This question is in regards to peyronies plaque

Peyrones. . .: These are two different issues: Peyrones is purely physical--it has nothing to do with your mind/your brain. Peyrone's does not make it impossible to have erections. However, as you know, it can create a 'curvature'. Issues with the brain/with your mind, that result in problems with erection do occur often, and are more often due to stress/distraction/fatigue/desire (or lack of it).

My penis curves to the left after having a vigorous hand job, i'v been to a specicilist he did'nt feel any placque and said I don't have pyronies?

My penis curves to the left after having a vigorous hand job, i'v been to a specicilist he did'nt feel any placque and said I don't have pyronies?

Not to worry,,,: This is not likely to cause Peyronie's disease, unless there was some hard trauma resulting in scar tissue, like during rough sexual intercourse. There also might be some genetic issue as those who've got it have plaques in places like in the hand. If this doesn't always happen and you've got no pain or erectile dysfunction, it's highly unlikely you've got it, especially after a normal exam.

Plaque: Is composed of several things but principally is made of a sticky substance called Mucopolysacceride. It also contains bacteria and other stuff that should not be left on your teeth. Plaque is the result of bacterial action on your food and components of your saliva. Here is an article with more details: https://en. M.wikipedia. Org/wiki/Dental_plaque

What causes blood plaques?

What causes blood plaques?

Can't answer: Not sure what is meant by blood plaques. Do you mean blood clots or cholesterol (atherosclerotic) plaques? The general process is damage - either acute or chronic - to the lining of the blood vessel with adherence of platelets, inflammation and subsequent plaque.
