User :   HI, my penice leans from the base to the right at about a 40 or 45 deg angle. Just started this about a month ago. It didn't slowly move that way, it started suddenly. Any help would be great.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   IAM.,DR XXX
User :   nice to meet you
Doctor :   PLEASE let me post
Doctor :   HAI
Doctor :   May i know you age?
User :   38
Doctor :   do you have any local pain?
User :   no
Doctor :   Was therea ny history of trauma?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Most men do not have a straight penis. A slight curvature of the penis upwards, downwards or to the side is already apparent at birth.
Doctor :   If the curvature does not cause a problem during sexual intercourse and does not increase, treatment/surgery is not necessary.
Doctor :   However, if the penis curvature increases and creates problems in sexual intercourse, it should be treated.
Doctor :   Penis curvature may also cause psychological problems in the men affected. Treatment is also advisable in this case.
User :   it doesn't curve it leans from the base
Doctor :   If a penis curvature occurs suddenly, after injuries or inflammation, we refer to acquired penis curvature, the so-called induratio penis plastica.
User :   just started this
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   The penis should under no circumstances be straightened by the use of force. This could result in injury to the cavernous body and permanent impotence.
Doctor :   It may be possible to successfully treat a freshly acquired penis curvature with medication
User :   I can move it straight with no problem but it goes right back
Doctor :   An alternative is penis curvature surgery. There are two surgery methods. Shortening by a gathering seam or a lentil-shaped incision which is subsequently sewn up.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   do you have problem with intercourse?
User :   yes sometimes
Doctor :   ok
User :   I have to hold it up straight to go in
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   One substantial disadvantage of the operation is that the two methods result in a shortening of the penis.
User :   its like the right side doesn't get as hard as the left
User :   we don't want that, its small enough as it is
Doctor :   so do you smoke?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   do you have diabtetes?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Many cases of deviation of the erect penis are caused by Peyronie's disease. This is a condition where the covering of the erection bodies lose elasticity and become fibrous creating a plaque or hard nodular area.
Doctor :   Since this plaque doesn't stretch, the penis bends during an erection. The exact cause isn't known, but is thought to be due to some level of trauma or injury to this area which may not even have been noticeable.
User :   ok
User :   what can I do about it
User :   no
Doctor :   anyway you need to get examined by an urologist?
User :   just not ae hard as it use to be
User :   ok
User :   thank you
Doctor :   so it can be poor blood supply
User :   ok
Doctor :   due to some blood vessel disease
Doctor :   so do check your blood sugar and blood cholesterol
