Home > Patient & Family Resources > Health Library > Peyronie's Disease
Peyronie's disease is caused by scar tissue in the penis, which makes the penis curve during an erection. For some men, this curving can cause pain and make sexual intercourse difficult or impossible.
Peyronie's disease usually affects men who are 50 and older. It rarely gets better on its own. If a man chooses to be treated, his options include medicines or surgery.
