If your penis has a slight curve to it, your penis is normal. However, when your penis has a severe curve or is crooked you may have developed what’s called Peyronie’s Disease and is sometimes (incorrectly) referred to as Chordee. A baby boy born with a curved penis has Congenital Penile Curvature (chordee).
What is Congenital Chordee?
Chordee is a congenital penile curvature birth defect in boys in which the penis is bent during an erection. This is a condition developed from bands of tissue pulling on the penis, making it appear bent or curved. It usually happens at the very end of the penis tip (glans). Most often, the curve is typically bent downward or to the side and is apparent only during an erection. Sometimes there is extra foreskin on the top of the penis, giving it a hooded appearance, which can also be a sign the child has chordee.
Chordee is often discovered shortly after birth when a doctor is checking for Hypospadias, a condition in which the urethral opening is located on the underside of the penis rather than at the tip. In some cases, the parents first notice chordee (curvature of penis) without hypospadias within the first few months of the child’s life. Sometimes chordee is not discovered until the boy reaches puberty, as the curvature becomes more apparent during an erection.
Chordee is seen in 1 of every 200 births of male children. When a man develops a curved penis later in his life, then he has Peyronie’s disease. Chordee usually does not have a negative impact on boys during their childhood. However, it but can inhibit sexual function later in adulthood, along with mentally and emotionally affecting the man.
Congenital Chordee with Hypospadias
Congenital Chordee can occur with Hypospadias, a condition in which the urethral opening is located on the underside of the penis rather than at the tip and sometimes all the way back toward the testicles, which is diagnosed at birth. Hypospadias can cause problems with passing urine standing up, and it can also interfere with sexual function.
What Causes Congenital Chordee?
Congenital Chordee can happen when the penis suddenly stops growing while a fetus is developing during pregnancy for various reasons and occurs around the 10th week of pregnancy when the tissues that form the penis usually curved around the penis. If the child is born with a curved penis, this means the tissues may have stopped developing around that time and remained curved.
A circumcision done while a child’s penis is inflamed can also cause chordee. This is because thick, scar tissue pulled the penis up or down, causing it to curve during the healing process.
Symptoms of Chordee
- Penis Curved – Either upward or downward. The curve can start anywhere from the base of the penis near the testicles or at the beginning of the glans (tip of penis).
- When Hypospadias is Present – Urine may splash or go in an unintended direction when urinating.
What is Peyronie’s Disease (PD)?
When a man develops a bend in his penis (curvature) later on in life, he is diagnosed as having Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease is when scar tissue (also called plaque) builds up inside the penis and causes the penis to bend up, down, or to the side, depending on the location of the scar tissue, during an erection. Some men may not have a curved penis, and may have an area of indentation or “hourglass” appearance because the scar tissue goes all the way around the penis making it narrow like the neck of a bottle or the center of an hourglass. A concern of having fibrous scar tissue thicken is that it can restrict the penis from stretching out and cause a shortening of the penis. The Peyronie’s disease occurs from repeated injuries to the penis, either during physical activity or sex causing the man to develop scar tissue on the penis.
A man with Peyronie’s disease may find sexual intercourse difficult, painful, or occasionally impossible (erectile dysfunction). Peyronie’s disease can affect 1 in 10 men.
Who is Likely to Get Peyronie’s Disease?
- Age – More likely to happen to a middle-aged and older men.
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – A man that has difficulty getting and keeping an erection are more likely to develop Peyronie’s disease.
- Prostate Cancer – Men who’ve had surgery for prostate cancer are at an increased risk.
- Autoimmune Disorders – Such aslupus, can cause Peyronie’s disease.
Peyronie’s Disease Symptoms
These symptoms can develop gradually or appear suddenly:
- Curvature of Penis – Upward, downward or bent to one side
- Scar tissue (plaque) – Under the skin of the penis
- Painful Erections
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – Difficulty in have or maintaining an erection
- Shortening of Penis
- Penile Deformity – When the penis is erect it may have narrowing, indentations or an hourglass-like appearance, with a tight, narrow band around the shaft of the penis.
- Mental Health Issues – Emotionally a man with Peyronie’s disease may cause body image issues, anxiety or even depression. It can also put a strain in a relationship and in other aspects of life.
Are Congenital Chordee and Peyronie’s Disease Treatable?
Congenital Chordee – In the medical world, Congenital Chordee will be addressed with a surgical procedure to straighten out the penis by removing the fibrous tissue causing the penis to bend. The surgery is usually is done when the child is between 6-18 months old. If the child has Hypospadias with the Chordee, a surgical procedure will be needed to correct the urethra by moving the urethra to a new area on the penis.
Peyronie’s Disease – As for Peyronie’s disease, in the medical world there are nonsurgical therapies (i.e., injections, oral medications, and traction) that are used to break up scar tissue, along with several surgical procedures to remove the plaque.
How Homeopathy Can Address Congenital Chordee and Peyronie’s Disease
There are several homeopathic remedies for chordee and Peyronie’s disease.
Congenital Chordee – Depending on the intensity of the curvature of the penis, the child may have to have surgery to correct the curvature. You may want to first consider using Homeopathy for a period of time to see if a homeopathic remedy will address congenital chordee and use surgery as a backup plan if needed, especially if scar tissue is causing the chordee. When a child has Hypospadias, the urethra will more than likely need the surgical procedure to correct the urethral opening. Homeopathic remedies can be used to help the healing process after a surgical procedure.
Peyronie’s Disease – In Homeopathy, Peyronie’s disease can be addressed with a homeopathic remedy to help dissolve the scar tissues (plague) and address any of the other symptoms a man can have with curvature of the penis.
Thiosinaminum Helps Cat with Scar Tissue on His Penis
One of my clients contacted me asking if Homeopathy could help dissolve scar tissue. She proceeded to tell me about her male cat (10 years old) having a problem peeing due to scar tissue around his penis. She explained that he could only pee from a very small opening. She observed that he was in the cat litter box for a while straining trying to pee. She had taken her cat to the vet to see why her cat was having a problem peeing. The vet was able to remove the scar tissue making the opening bigger, but the scar tissue kept growing back. After removing the scar tissue multiple times, her vet said the only way to resolve the issue was to do a Perineal urethrostomy (PU). “What?” I said, “Your vet wants to cut off his penis?” “Yes, “she responds frantically, “and I don’t want to do this. I am calling you as my last resort to see if Homeopathy can dissolve scar tissue, before taking these drastic measures.” I told her there are Homeopathic remedies for dissolving scar tissue, and according to your description, your cat needs the homeopathic remedy Thiosinaminum 30c.
My client gave her cat Thiosinaminum 30c once a day, and within a week or so the scar tissue started dissolving. The cat was able to pee a little easier with less straining. She continued giving her cat the Thiosinaminum until the scar tissue was completely dissolved and the cat was peeing normally. The best part was he could keep all his body parts! I know we are talking about the scar tissue of a cat’s penis being address with a Homeopathic Remedy, however, Thiosinaminum is also one of the Homeopathic Remedies that can help dissolve scar tissue for Peyronie’s disease, too. Thiosinaminum 30c will be taken the same way as the cat had taken it, once daily at bedtime.
