Thanks for your question. Lots of people have concerns about their penis, such as its size, length, or shape. When a penis has a curve that can be due to:
- a congenital problem, which means the person was born with it
- the forming of scar tissue inside the penis, such as in Peyronie’s disease
- an injury
- or another issue.
Sometimes people may also notice pain in their penis, problems urinating (or peeing), problems masturbating, problems ejaculating, or pain with sex. If you notice your penis has a curve it’s important to speak to your health care provider to figure out what’s causing it and to get the right treatment.
Here’s a tip on how to bring it up with your health care provider: “My penis has a curve, is that okay?”
