The National Institute of Health states that 3-9% of adult men experience Peyronie’s disease. This represents between 130 million – 290 million men worldwide, though the number may be even higher because patients do not always seek medical help.
The curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease (bent penis) may gradually worsen and become more difficult to treat over time, so it’s important to seek Peyronie’s disease treatment as soon as possible.
