Penile Curvature

Some men experience a normal curvature of the penis. Their erect penis may bend in an upward or downward curve or to one side of the body. A bent penis is a rather common condition. After all, penises vary in size and shape. It can cause significant stress and anxiety between men and their sexual partners. Unless a bent penis causes pain or interferes with sexual intercourse, it is usually not a serious problem.

What causes penile curvature?
  • Scar tissue inside the penis from past trauma (Peyronie’s Disease)
  • Congenital abnormality

Some common conditions this symptom is linked to include:

Erectile Dysfunction

Peyronie’s Disease
