In brief: Here are some ...
It's a sexually disabling penile condition resulting from local scar-like tissue hardening in the thick confinements (tunica albuginea) of corpora cavernosa, leading to pain in some and penile curvature at erection for all.
Usually, happens to middle aged with mean age at 53, but possible in younger or older. Its cause is idiopathic (unknown), though maybe coexisting with Dupuytren's of palms.

In brief: Scarring of penis
Peyronie's disease is scarring and inflammation of the lining of the chambers of the penis.
This is usually from the result of previous penile trauma including sexual activity. In most cases, patients, cannot remember an inciting event.
