Peyronie’s Disease is a benign disease of the connective tissue, which may be inherited or may occur as the consequence of minor damage within the elastic envelope of the penis, said “Jutarnji”. It is characterized by the solid collagenous plaques of the envelope of the penis, which can lead to its curvature.
The disease most commonly affects men between the ages of 40 and 60 years, explains Dr. Dinko Hauptman, a specialist urologist with the Urology Clinic of the Clinical Hospital Center Zagreb.
– Men in the Republic of Croatia still don’t contact us because of the shame. Unfortunately, not much attention has been paid to this disease and no specific treatment has been conducted until recently. With andrology professional development and training of several specialists urologist, Peyronie’s Disease can be successfully treated in Croatia. The consequences of untreated Peyronie’s Disease can be impairing the quality of sex life of men and women, and it affects the confidence, which can lead to depression – said the doctor Dinko Hauptman.
Although there is no data currently on the number of people suffering from the Peyronie’s Disease in Croatia, the world’s data show that the number of infected is at least five per cent, although it is estimated to grow to as much as 20%.
Peyronie’s disease can be treated surgically, and with non-surgical methods – from vitamin E pills to injections of steroids into the affected area, but the evidence is lacking for those methods about effectiveness.
