Statistically speaking, Peyronie’s disease is fairly uncommon. Peyronie’s disease impacts only about 2% or the male population.
Peyronie’s Disease is marked by a curvature of the penis. While the condition is not very common, for men who suffer with Peyronie’s it can have a significant negative impact on their sex-lives. Although not too many men have Peyronie’s, we do know that for some reason, the older you get, the more likely it is to occur. A recent study in the Journal of Urology found the “prevalence of [Peyronie’s disease] to be 1.5% for men aged 30-39, 3.0% for men aged 40-59, 4.0% for men age 60-69, and 6.5% for men age 70 and older.
So, while uncommon, the condition is not exactly rare. Also, I would say the statistics are probably lower than the real incidence of Peyronie’s, because, as with most conditions of “male sexuality”, Peyronie’s disease likely goes under reported. In any case for those who have the disease, it can be an uncomfortable, painful and embarrassing condition.
Peyronie’s disease is what we refer to as a “fibrotic tissue disorder,” which is caused by non-cancerous “fibroids” characterized by the presence of excess collagen, which is often referred to as “scar tissue or “plaque.” In the case of Peyronie’s disease, this fibrous tissue forms below the surface of the penis. The scar-like lumps result in a penis that is curved when erect. The curvature can make it difficult, or impossible, to engage in normal sexual activities.
We do not really know what causes Peyronie’s. It is not genetic, but it does run in families, and it is often the result of a known injury such as from bike riding, or even vigorous sexual activity.
Until recently, the only treatments available to repair the curvature of Peyronie’s disease were prescription drugs and/or surgical intervention.
Is There an Alternative to Drugs and Surgery for Peyronie’s Disease?
It is very common for men with Peyronie’s disease, to also suffer from ED. There is a treatment for Peyronie’s disease that does not require taking potentially dangerous drugs, or having invasive surgery. It is a procedure that was originally developed as a drug-free treatment for any man with erectile dysfunction (ED). As it turns out, it is also the ideal treatment for men with Peyronie’s disease who may also be suffering from ED because of the condition.
It does this with Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP is created by separating stem cells, and healing proteins from the red and white blood cells normally found in a sample of your blood.
When painlessly injected into the penis, PRP increases blood flow, and restores your ability to get an erection. However, unlike Viagra, it not only increases blood flow, it stimulates the healing and regrowth of erectile tissue damaged by Peyronie’s Disease.
The P-shot for Peyronie’s has been shown to restore normal erectile function, and also straighten out the curve typical of the disease. This makes the Gains Enhancement an effective treatment for Peyronie’s, even in men with PD who do not have erectile dysfunction.
