Curved erection

Q: My erections curve slightly to the right. This irritates me, as it looks bad. How can this be fixed?

Dr. Klein: The size and shape of the penis cannot be changed. That’s why it’s so important for each of us to accept our penis exactly the way it is. Besides, no part on our body is perfectly straight or round or symmetrical; every penis has slight irregularities. On the other hand, if your penis is curved so much that erection or urination is painful, this could indicate Peyronie’s Disease. In this case, you should see a physician, preferably a urologist, immediately.
