Peyronie’s disease rarely goes away by itself, but it is treatable. Your doctor may recommend avoiding medication at first in favor of watching and waiting to see if Peyronie’s disease resolves itself.
In some cases, the symptoms may remain the same or worsen over time. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can improve bothersome symptoms, like curvature, shortening, and pain.
Modern treatments do not require surgery or drugs, which means that active men can continue operating at maximum capacity while watching their symptoms disappear.
Risk Factors of Peyronie’s Disease
While Peyronie’s disease is generally caused by penile trauma, often by vigorous sexual intercourse, it can also result from sports or other types of accidents. There are risk factors of which to be aware that may cause it to develop quicker or worsen over time.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the risk factors for Peyronie’s disease include:
- Age: Peyronie’s disease can occur in men at any age, but the increase in age directly correlates with an increase in the risk of developing this condition. While a small amount of curvature is normal, a more prevalent occurrence in men over 50 may signal that something else is causing it.
- Heredity: Our genes play a significant role in our health, and it is a factor that is out of our hands. If your father, grandfather, or uncle developed Peyronie’s disease, it is more likely that you will develop the condition as well.
- Connective tissue disorders: The delicate tissue of the penis is similar to that of other connective tissue found on other parts of your body, like the cord that stretches across your palm. If you are experiencing connective tissue disorders in other areas, then you may also have a higher risk of developing Peyronie’s disease.
There are other lifestyle factors that may contribute to the disease, like diabetes, and erectile dysfunction that have the possibility to increase your risk for developing Peyronie’s disease, according to a study published by The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The good news is that Peyronie’s disease is a treatable condition that does not require surgery or tremendous “downtime,” according to Mayo Clinic, which allows you to keep living your best life.

Treatments That May Alleviate the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease
If you and your doctor determine that Peyronie’s disease does not go away on its own or symptoms keep worsening, then you may want to consider non-invasive treatments to alleviate the symptoms of the condition. There are a few treatment options, including the Priapus Shot (P-Shot), regenerative therapy, and GAINSWave® therapy1.
P-Shot® is an effective option for men with Peyronie’s disease. It works by injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a therapy that will improve the function and shape of the penis.
The treatment does not require surgery or prescription drugs. Your doctor can facilitate it in less than 30 minutes. The results are dramatic by correcting the bend while reducing pain.
Regenerative therapy with stem cells is another effective treatment option for Peyronie’s disease. Your doctor will inject stem cells derived from fat into the penis. The stem cells will seek and remove foreign particles like plaque. This strategy will also straighten your penis, whether flaccid or erect.
If injections are not a viable treatment option, your doctor may recommend that you undergo a procedure known as GAINSWave® therapy1. It is a natural solution that uses low intensity, high-frequency sound waves that break down the scar tissue or plaque to open up blood vessels to create new ones. A study published in the Korean Journal of Urology concluded that this type of treatment is minimally-invasive, safe, and satisfactory for patients.
This treatment will increase the blood flow and reduce penile curvature while correcting the potential of erectile dysfunction.
What You Can Do to Help the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease Go Away
As you can see, there are several viable options that you can take to reduce the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease without heavy prescription drugs, invasive surgery, or side effects. Working with a medical health professional that understands these issues and associated treatments is highly advisable for the best outcome possible.
A GainsWAVE® doctor may also recommend that you make adjustments to your lifestyle including exercise, diet, and a reduction in alcohol consumption. The better your overall health is, you will see better results that are more easily understood by the medical provider you choose.
