What is Peyronie’s Penile Curvature Treatment

The penis is composed of two cavernous bodies, of a mass of spongy tissue surrounding the urethra (the tube through which urine flows), and of a glans, or head, at the tip. The two cavernous bodies are covered by a thick, elastic membrane called the tunica albuginea, which creates an erection by increasing the penis’ girth and length. Peyronie’s disease is caused by the development of localized fibrous segments in the tunica albuginea of the sponge-like region of the penis which in turn causes it to curve during an erection.
