Charlotte's Expert in Peyronie's Disease
What is Peyronie's Disease?
Peyronie's Disease is the build up of scar tissue in the penis that can cause curved, painful erections. The scar tissue build up can be the result of an injury from sexual activity, athletic activity or an accident, even when no specific trauma occurs to the penis. It is a connective tissue disorder as plaque builds up in the penis.
Although the cause isn't completely understood, Peyronie's disease can make it difficult for Charlotte men have or maintain an erection. Sometimes Peyronie's Disease goes away on its own. However, it is unlikely to go away without proper treatment.
