According to the doctors, the penis can naturally curve as men get older. But it may also be a sign of a serious disease linked to cancer.
Dr. Matthew Mintz from Maryland, US, explains that it’s normal for some men to have a more bent penis because the two tubes that fill with blood in order to give an erection can be different sizes. Also, the skin on the organ may affect how curved it appears – the older you get and your skin gets looser, the curve can look more pronounced, informs dailymail.co.uk.
What few people know is that a bent penis can be a symptom of a condition known as Peyronie’s disease (which affects up to 7% of males).$44.12
Experts recently linked this condition with a higher risk of various cancer (including testicular, melanoma and stomach).
Signs of Peyronie disease include scar tissue, erection problems and pain, and a significant bent.
