Size is one thing, but what about shape? Some curve just a little bit, while some should be measured with a protractor. Is this some sort of condition, or is it just a normal penis variation?
Many penises curve slightly, particularly when erect, and that’s normal. But the super-curvy ones are a result of something called Peyronie’s disease. We’re not always sure exactly why this happens, but about 1 out of 100 men will develop small, hard lumps called plaques on their penis. These plaques don’t expand the same way that the rest of the penis does. When the penis is limp, you don’t notice. But when the penis “inflates” the plaques cause the penis to curve in one direction or another. A plaque on the top of the shaft (most common) causes the penis to bend upward; a plaque on the underside causes it to bend downward. The plaque itself is benign, or noncancerous. Symptoms may develop slowly or appear overnight. If the case is mild, it doesn’t interfere with sex. But if the bend is severe-and I’m talking about nearly a right angle here-intercourse can be either painful or impossible. A variety of treatments can reduce or correct the problems.
