Peyronie’s Disease a Concern for Men with Dupuytren’s Contracture

Research has shown that some men with Peyronie’s disease also have Dupuytren’s contracture. But scientists were unsure to what extent the reverse was true. How many men with Dupuytren’s contracture have symptoms of Peyronie’s disease?

They surveyed 85 men with Dupuytren’s contracture about their sexual health, especially their erectile function and discovered that:

  • 26% of the men had symptoms of Peyronie’s disease.
  • 91% of these men had curvature.
  • 55% had loss of penile length.
  • 40% said that they had sex less often because of the symptoms.
  • 73% said they felt bothered by their situation.

Many of the men also said they would consider treatment for penile deformities.

If you or your partner are experiencing changes in your penis, be sure to talk to your doctor.
