Hello.

Thanks for posting your query.

What you are talking about is classical description of Peyronie's disease. Usually it happens secondary to trivial trauma during intercourse. The trauma is so trivial that patient does not even remember it.

First and foremost step in treatment is to avoid woman on top position during intercourse and be gentle during intercourse. There are plenty of medications available for treatment of peyronie's disease like cortecosteroid injections, Verapamil injection, Vitamin E, Radiotion therapy, etc. But there is no 100% solution available.

Surgery can be other alternative if it is affecting your quality of sex life.

I would suggest you to see Urologist and start yourself on medications which suits you under his care.

Hope, this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards.
