Chordee by definition means bend. Your photos suggest there is mild to moderate bend. It looks like that the urinary opening is at the tip. Normally when there is a bend, the opening is behind the penis. You are fortunate.

In your case, it needs treatment if the bend significantly interferes with your sexual intercourse. Otherwise it is best left alone. The function of the organ is to pass urine well and have satisfactory intercourse. If these two functions are ok, then there is nothing to worry.

If you are not able to penetrate into the female organ, then surgical treatment by means of straightening is advisable (chordee correction/orthoplasty). Medical treatment is not very beneficial.

You need to be examined first and an experienced urologist would be able to guide you once a full, thorough examination is done.

All the best.
