Peyronie's Disease & Prostate Cancer

Patients who have been through surgery for Prostate Cancer, may notice that their penis becoming increasingly bent when they have an erection. They may also experience pain, a softening of the penis head and partial erectile dysfunction. This is likely to affect up to 1 in 5 prostate cancer patients.

Our clinician has consulted with 1000's of men who have overcome prostate cancer, and now suffer bends in their manhood and problems with Erectile Dysfunction (ED).

Penile Trauma and Peyronie's Disease

Any form of injury to the penis can cause Peyronie's disease, and surgery is no different.

Surgery causes inflammation and swelling, leading to a build-up of scar tissue and fibrous plaques and the onset of PD. Although often a cause of severe personal stress, this is not cancerous. PD restricts the penis from expanding and causes the bend. The scar tissue will also restrict the healthy flow of blood leading to a softening and partial ED. Most patients will notice this change over a 12 - 18-month period. There is also a chance that during surgery the penile nerves are stretched or severed. If they have been severed, then it is not possible to have an erection. But if they have been stretched, a degree of erection will be possible.

Revolutionising Peyronie's Disease Treatment

In the vast majority of cases, Focused Shockwave along with EMTT and Nanovi Therapy, can be used to breakdown and dissipate the scar tissue, increase, and revitalise blood vessels (Angiogenesis) and improve nerve tissue (Neurogenesis) – enabling the penis to be straightened and erections easier to achieve.

As a result, many men who have been through Prostate Cancer and subsequently suffered from Peyronie's disease, are able to resume a satisfactory sex life without pain.
