Dear customer

Thank you being online.

The symptoms you have described of penis starting to curving up is suggestive of a condition called Peyronie's disease.It is an abnormal curve or bend in the penis during an erection.It happens because of development of hard, fibrous layer of scar tissue (plaque).The plaque develops on the upper or lower side of the penis in layers containing erectile tissue.When the penis is erect, the scar tissue pulls the affected area off at an angle.This causes the curve in penis.

This is not a serious or dangerous condition & is not an emergency.As you are not getting an early appointment,it is okay to wait for this time & consult the specialist accordingly.

The treatment varies from prescription medications & intralesional injection(shot directly into the scar tissue) to the surgery.So I advice you to schedule the appointment with urologist for the physical examination & treatment accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

As you do not have any pain in penis & having bent/curve in penis-Peyronie's disease seems to be the most probable cause of your symptoms.It is an abnormal curve or bend in the penis during an erection.It happens because of development of hard, fibrous layer of scar tissue (plaque).The plaque develops on the upper or lower side of the penis in layers containing erectile tissue.When the penis is erect, the scar tissue pulls the affected area off at an angle.This causes the curve in penis.

Please do not worry.You can consult the doctor later as you are not getting an early appointment.This is not a serious or dangerous condition & is not an emergency.Because the symptoms of Peyronie's disease can improve without treatment,it is generally advised to wait for atleast one year or longer before attempting to correct it surgically.

So bottom line is I advise you to please do not worry.You need to wait & watch your symptoms & consult the doctor as you are getting an appointment 2 months later.
