Management and Treatment of Congenital Penile Curvature

One of the most common sexual health problems in men is penile curvature.

If penile curvature, a congenital or advanced condition, is seen from birth, you have no chance of treatment other than surgical intervention.

Our patients naturally wonder how to understand penile curvature and how to treat penile curvature. While erect, your penis should be straight at a 90-degree angle. If it is to the right, left, down, or up, this is a deformation and is called penile curvature.

If you suffer from penile curvature, do not worry. You can overcome this problem with Dr. Yaşar Başağa, the best urology doctor in Turkey.

What Are the Symptoms of Penile Curvature?

If you have penile curvature, you will not experience any pain. Of course, there are some indications to detect this condition, some of which you can find below.

  • Detection of congenital penile curvature mostly occurs at puberty. Earlier detection is possible only after a detailed examination.
  • As your urethra is at the bottom side of your penis, your urine does not come out from the normal place, you have difficulty. (Hypospadias, detailed information below)
  • When you have sexual intercourse, you feel pain during your erection.

What Causes Congenital Curvature of the Penis?

If you have congenital penile curvature, you are probably wondering why it is caused. In the structure of your penis, there are 2 spongy tissues and 1 other spongy tissue that carries the urinary tract in the vein that allows you to get an erection. Before birth, one of them cannot develop sufficiently, in this case, penile curvature occurs.

In addition, in hypospadias, which is a type of penile curvature, popularly called the sunnah of the prophet, your urethra is not in a normal position. This causes you to experience penile curvature immediately after birth.

How Is Congenital Penile Curvature Treated?

Treatment of congenital penile curvature is performed to correct this problem by surgical method. The surgical technique to be used may vary depending on the extent of the curvature and the anatomical structure of the person.penile curvature yasar basaga

The Nesbit procedure is a surgical technique used to treat Peyronie's disease, which causes scar tissue inside your penis. With the operation, a part of it is removed and your penis is straightened.

The Nesbit procedure is performed under general anesthesia, so the patient is anesthetized during the surgery. The surgery usually takes 1-2 hours to complete. The recovery period may vary according to your general condition, you can be discharged after 1 day of observation. At the same time, most patients can return to their normal activities within a few weeks.

It is necessary to monitor your recovery process after penile curvature surgery. If you experience pain, you can use prescribed medications. It is recommended that you do bed rest, avoid exercises that force you, and consult your doctor before returning to sexual activity when recovery is complete.

However, it should be kept in mind that full recovery may take several months and sexual activity should not be performed for the duration recommended by the surgical specialist. This period is on average 1.5 months. Following your doctor's instructions carefully after the operation is very important for a successful treatment outcome.

Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications in the treatment of congenital penile curvatures, such as bleeding, infections, deformation, and penile insensitivity. It is very important that you discuss all the side effects and benefits with an experienced urologist before deciding on surgery.

Who Can Have Penile Curvature Surgery?

Eligibility for the treatment of congenital penile curvature is determined individually by a qualified urologist. Factors that are usually considered when determining your candidacy for the procedure are the degree of curvature of the penis (must be over 30 degrees) or deformation, the size and location of the scars, your general health and medical history, and your expectations and goals.

It is important to remember that the Nesbit procedure is considered a last chance in the cure of this disease because there are other treatment options that can be tried first, drug therapy or physical therapy may be tried.

Surgery is mostly only recommended for you if you have difficulty having sexual intercourse or have a self-confidence problem due to penile curvature. It is also important to establish realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery. The procedure may not completely eliminate the deformation, but the success rate is over 90%.

Does Penile Curvature Prevent Have Children?

The question of whether penile curvature can prevent us from having children is another question that many of our patients wonder about. While the answer is mostly no, it totally depends on the case.

If your urethra is close to your testicles from birth, this makes it harder for you to ejaculate during sex. Therefore, it can create an obstacle to childbirth.

In addition, your penis may have some degree of curvature and may cause pain during sexual intercourse, but this may not be an obstacle to having children. However, the erectile dysfunction problem due to Peyronie's disease can prevent you from having children. When you experience this, you should definitely consult your doctor.
