Many men have a slight curved, bent penis, especially when they are fully erect. In fact, a penis curve, bend that is less than10 degrees in angle, and has been evident since childhood, is perfectly normal and nothing to be concerned about. However, when the curved, bent penis occurs after childhood it may lead to prevention of normal sexual activity, then this is considered to be a problem, and medical advice should be sought.

Curved, Bent Penis Causes

There are five common causes of a curved, bent penis. ,most of which, can be treated with proper and adequate penis care. These are as follows:

Hypospadias – Typically a congenital defect, Hypospadias occurs when the opening of the urethra, or urinary tract, is not placed in the correct position. This can cause a curved, bent penis, especially as the male ages and the penis grows.

Penis Fracture/ Injury – the most common cause of a penis curve, bend occurs when the tissue of the penis ruptures. This usually happens when the penis is erect during sexual intercourse or masturbation.

Peyronie’s Disease – A condition that may occur in as many as 10% of men, Pyronie’s Disease predominately affects men who experience a rupture or tear of penis connective tissue and results in the formation of fibrous tissue that can pull or bend an erect penis.

Urethral Stricture – This is a narrowing of the urethra of the penis. The urethra is the tube where urine passes from the body and where seminal fluid, in men, is ejaculated from.

Curved, Bent Penis Symptoms

Hypospadias – A downward curve, bent penis when erect, is the most common, however the penis may also spray when urinating, or the foreskin may be ill formed and resemble a hood. In addition the sufferer may also prefer to be seated when urinating.

Penis Fracture/ Injury – A popping sound may be heard and the penis will become painful. A noticeable penis curve, bend may also appear.

Peyronie’s Disease – The penis can become inflamed, and a lump may appear on the surface of the skin. There will also be an obvious (extreme) curve, bend in the penis, and erections may be painful.

Urethral Stricture – Urination and ejaculation may be painful, and urine may spray when visiting the toilet. In addition, a burning sensation or pain may be felt when urinating and there may be a need to urinate frequently, with a minimal amount of urine being passed. This condition may also result in a penis curve, bend becoming an issue.

Curved Bent Penis Treatment

Abstain from all sexual activity including masturbation, until diagnoses of the condition has been made. Otherwise, considerable damage to the penis could be done, which may result in an increase in scar tissue and reduced sexual function.

Hypospadias – If uncircumcised, the bent, curved penis will have the foreskin removed, and then, if needed, surgery to correct the misaligned opening of the urethra will take place.

Penis Fracture/ Injury – Surgery is needed to repair the damage to the penis, otherwise it is highly likely that scar tissue will form in the area and may cause further penis bending.

Peyronie’s Disease – In some instances, Peyronie’s Disease will rectify itself without any medical intervention. Other forms of treatment may include ultrasound, corticosteroid injections, grafts, surgery, and penile implants.

Urethral Stricture – After a medical consultation, antibiotics may be prescribed to alleviate any infection and inflammation. If the Urethral Stricture continues to be a problem, then surgery may be needed to enlarge the urethral passage.

In any cases, the initial form of pevention that should be considered is the use of a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil), daily. These products contain essential vitamins and minerals that care for and maintain the health of the penis, moisturize and protect the penis and aids in healing.
