Recently, I noticed a kind of two bumps/cysts (about 3-4 mm) beneath the skin of my inner foreskin, close to the glans. One is showable, the other not. The one that is always seen varies its size according to erection level (small in the flaccid state, bigger while erect). After ejaculation, they become noticeble, both of them. Most of the time I feel some discomfort and pain in that area, mostly after ejaculation.
Well, I have bad news and maybe good news:
- Bad news: yesterday I went to an Urologist and I have Peyronie´s Disease;
He told me there´s is no totally effective treatment. Vitamin E may help, as well as an extender, injections and, as last resort, surgery.
As for the not so bad news: it´s not at very serious level, according to the doctor. He also said he´s convinced it will improve an disappear over time.
He told me to buy Vitamin E supplements and take it for about 3 months. It should help. If things get worse, I´ll have to take injections in the penis and, if necessary, surgery...
My upward curvature is not very sharp, but my major problem is the discomfort/pain I fell most of the time, and everytime I do PE
, the pain in that area seems to increase. When I use the Bathmate at higher pressures I feel that area of the "cysts" hurting...! But strangely, it seems that the time I feel most discomfort is after ejacuation.
I also saw that L-Lysine will help with "cysts" disappearing.
So, I have some questions I´d like you to aswer me, please:
1 - Should I do something specifically for the pain go away? I mean, stop having sex, masturbating, etc?
Answer: No. Do not stop having sex. Make sure there is plenty of lubrication to avoid excess friction and try to be careful during intercourse and do not let a woman be in the superior position (on top). Use care when masturbating. Hopefully, the fibrotic plaque/nodules you are experiencing are in the inflammatory/acute state and will resolve spontaneously on their own in due time. Most cases of peyronie's will resolve without the need for surgery. Mine did not.
2 - Will L-Lysine help me with the "cysts" disappearing?
Answer: No. They are fibrotic nodules/plaques. Vitamin E is also useless but can be taken as an added measure. Colchicine, PABA or Pentoxifylline may help at this early stage of the disease. I would not advocate any injections at this point as it might produce further unnecessary trauma. ESWL is also useless and can cause more trauma. As far as traction goes, think of it this way. You CAN stretch a scar but it is still there. Don't do traction as this can make the scarring worse.
3 - (The one that bothers me the most): will I be forced to stop PE? I do streches, jelq and sometimes Bathmate. I haven´t done it for about a week.
Answer: Yes. Sad to say, but many who attempt to enlarge their penis through "natural" means will do damage to their best buddy. The penis was not meant to be warmed up, then stretched, choked or put through unnatural vacuum forces. Would you over inflate your tires to make them bigger? Putting your penis through further trauma from PE will likely make your recovery from peyronie's unlikely and possibly make your curvature/deformity worse. I am a member over at Thunder's as well (Curveball7). After years of PE, I gave up. Nothing improved curvature and none of my friends had gained size either. Very few will gain from manual PE. Most will gain nothing but will lose precious time. Some will injure themselves. I have doctors on both sides of my family and they both said that it is nonsense. After speaking with Professor Dr. Sava Perovic and Dr. Paulo Henrique Egydio, two of the best andrologists and urologists in the world, they both confirmed what my uncle and grandfather told me. Don't do it. It doesn't work in the vast majority of people. It can do more harm than good. Men are desperate to enlarge their penis and will believe many unscrupulous claims. Many experience the placebo effect or a temporary increase in size that subsides (never cements). You are free to believe what you will. As an honest and caring human being, I cannot and will not advocate/recommend manual penis enlargement. You could be the type of person who does gain permanent penile size. You are more likely to be a lottery winner. Ask yourself this... What good is a large penis if you cannot achieve erection? I rest my case. Try eating healthier, exercising (esp. cardio), getting 8 hours of sleep each night. This will do more for your lil' buddy than years of torturing him; and he'll be more likely to serve you in the years to come.
Please, would you help me? What should I do?
Answer: I am always willing to help. I hope and pray this information helps you. I'm a friend and my intentions are genuine. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask.
Thank you so much.
