According to a study, penises come in all shapes, sizes and colours but new research suggests that men, especially older men, with curved penises could have an increased risk of cancer.
A curved penis, more than 15 degrees, could be a sign of Peyronie’s disease (PD) – a connective tissue disorder involving the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis – affecting one in 20 men in the United Kingdom.
Peyronie’s disease causes a man’s penis to stiffen and bend due to a build-up of plaque in the penal shaft.
The results suggested that it is more common in older men and typically affects five percent of guys over the age of 50. The first warning signs are a painful erection or a lump in the shaft of your penis when it’s flaccid. Dr Seth stated that the bend usually comes later but not always.
The research is presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.(ANI)
