Hard corpus cavernosum in flaccid state, discomfort, occassional sharp pain

Hi, I noticed that in the flaccid state my corpus cavernosum is hard. This problem seemed to occur out of nowhere and has lasted for 2 years. Just now it is starting to cause pretty constant discomfort/occasional sharp pain. Everything else seems to be completely fine, no testicular pain , no discharge , no sores, just the hardened corpus cavernosum. Any ideas? Thank you

I would suggest that you have an ultrasound scan of the soft tissues of penis without and with a pharmacologically induced erection. This would be able to tell you if there is a plaque along the corpora cavernosa in which case you probably have an entity known as Peyronie' disease which is associated with induration of the penis with mild to moderate discomfort in it's initial stages. This test will also be able to quantify the blood flow to the phallus and indicate if there is a likelihood of erectile dysfunction which often coexists with Peyronies disease. The treatment would eventually depend on what is detected on the scan.
Hope I have been able to help you.
