Does Peyronie's disease plaque always have to be on the top of shaft even if the damaged area is on the right?

Does Peyronie's disease plaque always have to be on the top of shaft even if the damaged area is on the right?

On the same side ...: Although the location of the plaque of Peyronie's disease is more commonly on the dorsal (top) aspect of the penis, it can be at any location of corpora cavernosa (the paired sponge body chiefly responsible for erection) and restricts the expansion and extension of these corporeal body resulting in penile curvature at erection.

Check their society: Most all diseases, pathology, etc, have a society/organization dedicated to that interest. They would be the best source for information. Games like healthtap are for fun (as stated on their website) and online rating sites are highly unreliable since anyone (including nonpatients, rival doctors, fired staff, etc) can post anonymous reviews.

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?

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
