Have you noticed changes to your sexual health or performance? Many men experience symptoms related to erectile dysfunction (ED), and it can be frustrating. But what if the changes are more than just the ability to maintain an erection? Peyronie’s disease is a condition that impacts the shape of the penis as a result of scar tissue. Learn more about this condition and treatment options during a consultation with us at Scottsdale Center for Men’s Health in Scottsdale, AZ.
What Is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease is a condition men experience caused by fibrous scar tissue in the penis. The scar tissues may be a result of penile injury. The presence of scar tissue may cause bent or painful erections.
Common indicators of Peyronie’s disease include:
- Curvature of the penis
- Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- Drop in sexual confidence
- Feeling lumps or bands of scar tissue on the penis
- Pain when trying to achieve an erection
- Shortening of the penis
It is important that each penis is different in shape and size. Some slight curvature may be normal, but it is important to seek medical care if you are concerned.
How Can It Be Treated?
GAINSWave® is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option to reduce the effects of Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction. This powerful treatment uses low-intensity soundwaves and pulses to stimulate blood flow to the penis.
By stimulating blood flow, this helps promote the ability to achieve spontaneous and better erections. It also effectively encourages the creation of new blood vessels as well as the removal of micro-plaque from tissues.
GAINSWave for Peyronie’s disease treatments are relatively short and performed in the comfort of our Arizona office. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities. It is a safe and effective treatment for most generally healthy men, and it treats the root of the problem directly.
When Should I Consider Treatment?
Peyronie’s disease may cause a variety of frustrating effects on life. You may consider seeking treatment if you:
- Do not feel as sexually confident or comfortable
- Experience difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- Experience penile pain (with or without an erection)
- Notice your penis has changed in size or shape
- Worry about the curvature of your penis
