A disorder in which one or more small areas of plaque (fibrous tissue) develop in the penis. This abnormality causes painful erections and difficulty with intercourse. A man may experience a mild aching in a specific area of the penis well before any lump or plaque can be felt. The areas usually develop on the upper side of the penis but are sometimes found on the underside. The plaque may be painless, but the ability of the penis to become erect can be affected. The penis may be curved when erect, with resulting pain. As time goes on, the plaque may spread, causing more bending of the penis or discomfort.
