Why does my penis appear bent?
A bend in your penis with or without pain may be Peyronie's Disease. This is caused by scar tissue that develops in the wall of the cylinders of the penis. Some cases are so severe that penetration is not possible. Fortunately, there are effective treatments including creams, pills and injections to soften up the scar tissue. There has been encouraging results with a new penile traction device as well. However, in some cases surgery is necessary to straighten the penis.
