Brief Answer:
maybe peyronie's , consider seeing an urologist

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that this may be related to peyronie's disease but this would need to be confirmed by a visit to your doctor.

Peyronie's disease is a condition associated with curvature of the penis though this is commonly occurs with pain. There is an area of fibrous or scar tissue within the penis that pulls and causes the curvature to occur

The exact cause is unknown.

An urologist is the doctor that would be best able to assess and treat.

Treatment . There are different treatment plans with varied success: (1) vitamin E- one study , at doses 200mg to 300mg
(2) PABA- potassium aminobenzoate
(3) collagenase clostridium histolyticum- approved in Dec 2013 for this condition
(4)colchicine- normally used for gout, it is also thought to be helpful in peyronie's. It can cause stomach upset

(5) surgery is also an option

In some cases, a combination of oral meds are used to get the maximum result.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Brief Answer:
can spontaneous improvement

Detailed Answer:
HI

In some persons especially with mild cases, there is actually spontaneous improvement.

It may remain the same in some and progress in other cases but it is difficult to determine which path you may follow.
In progression, pain can occur and the curvature can worsen,this may not be the case for you

It would be best to see an urologist for assessment and he or she would also be able to start some form of treatment.

Please feel free to ask anything else
