How is Peyronie’s Disease Diagnosed?

Your health care provider may be able to tell if you have Peyronie's disease with only a physical exam. The hard plaques can most often be felt whether the penis is stiff or not. To check how the penis curves, your health care provider may inject a drug into your penis to make it stiff, and may take pictures for study. In some cases dynamic ultrasound, which uses sound waves to get a picture of what's in your body, is used to see where the plaque is, check for calcium buildup, and show how the blood flows in your penis.
