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

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
