Does Peyronie’s disease cause Erectile Dysfunction?
by Jacob Samual

A formation of hardened tissue in the penis, which causes pain, distortion and curvature during erection, indicates symptoms of the Peyronie’s disease. The plaque develops on the upper or lower side of the penis in layers containing erectile tissue. It begins as a localized inflammation and can develop into a hardened scar. In many cases, curves and pains result in erectile dysfunction. If there are several areas of plaque incomplete erection may occur.

What causes Peyronie’s?
The causes of Peyronie’s disease are unknown. But let us analyze a few of them.

Trauma or injury
Doctors differ in their opinion when some declare the root cause of Peyronie's as trauma related. Others point out some injury or damage of nerves in the pelvic region as the main cause of disease.

Autoimmune disorder and collagen abnormality
Men’s immune system may not respond normally in many cases. Connective tissue abnormality can also be another cause.

Blood pressure and heart medications cause side effects like Peyronie’s disease in some men. Seek doctor’s advice before it gets too late.
