Can penis weight hanging with a pe hanger such as Malehanger be used as a remedy, or even a cure for a condition like Peyronie's Disease? For many men, this is a valid question. Considering the 'standard of care', or common treatments available these days for Peyronie's Disease, hanging some weights from your penis a couple times a day may not seem like such an "extreme" idea.
First, what IS Peyronie's Disease?
Peyronie's disease is penis problem caused by scar tissue, called plaque, that forms inside the penis. It can result in a bent, rather than straight, erect penis. Most men with Peyronie's disease can still have sex. But for some, it can be painful and cause erectile dysfunction. Depending on the symptoms, you may opt for observation, medical or surgical treatments.
What Causes Peyronie's Disease?
Doctors don’t know exactly why Peyronie's disease happens. Many researchers believe the fibrous plaque can start after trauma (hitting or bending) that causes bleeding inside the penis. You might not notice the injury or trauma.
Other cases, which develop over time, may be linked to genes. In some men, injury and genes could both be involved.
Some medications list Peyronie's disease as a possible side effect. But there is no proof that these drugs cause the condition.
What Are the Symptoms of Peyronie's Disease?
Symptoms may develop slowly or appear overnight. When the penis is soft, you can’t see a problem. But in severe cases, the hardened plaque hampers flexibility, causing pain and forcing the penis to bend or arc when erect.
In most cases, the pain eases over time, but the bend in the penis can worsen.
Some men with the condition develop scar tissue elsewhere in the body, such as on the hand or foot. Men with Dupuytren's contractures -- scarring in the hand that affects fingers -- seem to be more likely to get Peyronie's.
How Do Doctors Diagnose Peyronie's Disease?
Tell your doctor about anything, such as an injury, that happened before the symptoms started.You’ll get an exam in which your doctor will feel the hardened tissue caused by the disease during an exam. It’s not always necessary, but if the penis has to be erect for the exam, the doctor would inject a medicine to make that happen. There’s a chance you may need to get an X-ray or ultrasound of the penis. It’s rare, but in some cases where the doctor's exam does not confirm Peyronie's disease, or if the condition develops rapidly, your doctor may do a biopsy. That involves removing a little bit of tissue from the affected area for lab tests.
How might a pe hanger like Malehanger help with a condition like Peyronie's Disease?
According to the National Institutes Of Health, stretching the penis through "traction therapy" aka, penis stretching with a device like Malehanger, has shown favorable results in men suffering with Peyronie's disease. I have also seen anecdotal and first hand testimonials from my own customers via private emails saying they are seeing improvement in their condition after just weeks of use.
