Peyronie’s disease is the development of scar tissue in the penis. We do not always know what causes Peyronie’s; however, most times Peyronie’s the result of an injury or decreased blood flow. Peyronie’s can cause pain and/or curvature of the penis and may also result in a decrease in penile size and erections.
