Doctor insights on:
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?
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. ...Read more
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... ...Read more
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
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. ...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 more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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?
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). ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Over time our arteries become more narrow and certain conditions speed up the process: smoking, diabetes (and overweight/metabolic syndrome), hi blood pressure, and hi cholesterol. Exercise can slow down the process. Plaque build up in arteries leads to heart attack and strokes. ...Read more

Calcium and platlets: Theory is bacteria damage internal lining of arteries causing small ulcers next invaded by white blood cells and coat of fats (cholesterol), calcium, & a mat of blood platlets, all called plaque. It is as if the arteries have their own patch repair kit. Overtime plaque cracks and process recurs causing buildup that blocks ready passage of blood &, if bore of artery closed off, an heart attack. ...Read more
Family practice: As we age our arteries develope small cracks on its walls. Many things can speed up this process. Smoking, diabetes, hypertension and family history. Cholesterol comes along and tries to patch these areas up. Over time it justs builds up. If we have a high cholesterol or triglyceride the build up is faster. So it is important to correct all those factors to help prevent stroke and heart attack. ...Read more
