One particular problem that has received increasing attention in recent years is Peyronie’s disease, a condition in which painful, hard plaques form underneath the skin of the penis leading to penile curvature.
Peyronie’s disease (also known as induratio plastica penis) is an acquired inflammatory condition of the penis. The principle manifestation of Peyronie’s disease is the formation of a plaque (a segment of flat scar tissue) within the tunica albuginea of the penis. This plaque can usually be felt through the penile skin. This plaque is not a tumor but it may lead to serious problems such as curved and/or painful erections.
