Doctor:How can I help you ?
User:Hi, I have an odd question. I am a little paranoid about peyronies disease
Doctor:Ok, please proceed
User:and today I was doing a peyronies plaque check where I stretched the flaccid penis about half way and searched for a plaque
User:I could not find anything. But when I was checking for a plaque I felt a momentary moment of pain
User:and im just hoping I didn't do any damage. Can I safely assume that if there is no bruise or swelling that I did not do enough damage to cause the damage that could lead to peyronies disease?
User:If the tunica is not filled with blood it must be harder to damage, but also if i damaged it there must be a visible XXXXXXX on my penis from the trauma correct?
Doctor:Need not worry
Doctor:And yes there would be a visible XXXXXXX and a local swelling if there was a damage
User:so is what I said correct? About there needing to be a visible sign of trauma? And the tunica less easy to damage in the flaccid but stretched state?
User:ok great, so I never need to worry about peyronies if something doesn't cause a bruise or swelling on my penis? Correct?
Doctor:and a minor injury like one you imagine is also not enough to trigger fibromatosis (Peyronies)
Doctor:As I said need not worry
User:ok great. While I got you on the line here. I often have soreness in my vas you know what might be the cause or solution to that?
Doctor:Is such soreness frequent ?
User:ya kind of. I know its the vas deferens cause after i had hernia surgery i noticed how that felt on the right side of my vas deferens. But ya i feel it frequently
Doctor:Then you may be needing a test called dopplar which will find out the cause for the same
User:ok, i'll give that a shot. thanks
Doctor:Treatment depends on the cause which may range from antiinflammatory medications to surgery
User:its not annoying enough for me to undergo surgery
User:basically if the pain is not that bad can i just live with it?
Doctor:Yes, but if its becomes frequent then you may have to go for the test
User:but like it would never cause other problems if left untreated?
Doctor:As i said the complications also can be expected based on the cause
User:ok fair enough, i'll go in for some tests. Would I ever need surgery to prevent other stuff from happening depending on the cause? or could i get by with just treatment depending on the cause? like is there any cause that would make me absolutely have to get surgery?
Doctor:Yes, there are some causes which may need surgery only
Doctor:and yes treating it will prevent complications
User:meh, oh well, hopefully that wont be the case.
User:thanks you've been very helpful
Doctor:You are welcome
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me
Doctor:Bye for now
