Signs You May Have Peyronie’s Disease

Stages of Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s disease progresses through two stages, known as the acute and chronic phases.
Acute Phase – The acute phase generally lasts between five and seven months, although it can persist for 18 months. This phase is when plaques begin to form on the penis, causing painful erections and increasing bending or curvature of the penis. Most plaques form on the top of the penis, but plaques along the bottom and sides are possible and can cause complex bending complications.
Chronic Phase – The chronic phase begins when plaques stop growing and developing. At this point, there should be no further curvature of the penis, and a reduction in pain is likely.
