Hello there,

There are two issues here, one is curvature of the penis and the other may be erectile dysfunction.

 

It is not uncommon for males to develop Peyronie's disease (acquired curvature of the penis). There are medical treatments with steroids, injections of medicines into the penis, and systemic therapies with interferon but these are often unsuccessful and have numerous side effects- Surgical correction remains the best treatment to date.

 

We only correct this surgically for several reasons- 1. Discomfort for you during sex 2. discomfort for your partner during sex 3. cosmetic reasons (if you really do not like the curvature and want it fixed).

 

Surgery is done as an outpatient and pain post operatively is usually quite minimal.

 

As far as erections not getting as hard as they should, you may have a component of erectile dysfunction requiring medications such as viagra, levitra or cialis.

 

You should see a urologist for further help.

 

Best of luck,

Dr Patel

ya i am not to worried about the curvature of my penis which exist in the middle but my stance is about the root of the penis . which is thin than the remaining area of the penis and when it erects it completely hang 90 degree downwards . it seems that there is no strenth in the base root of my prnis that is emberising situation for me and i can not explain u that how much i suffer syclogically when i see my penis or when i think about it because i have not seen anybody in my life whose penis does not stand up when erected so it make me emberessed infront of my girlfriend
