Did my pediatric circumcision result in penile curvature?

To answer a couple of questions/points regarding my circumcision. Firstly I was circumcised for medical reasons and, although not quite four at the time, I couldn’t tell you if it was really explained to me at the time and  as it was for medical reasons there wasn’t going to be much choice for me in the procedure. Secondly, even though i was very young it didn’t affect me growing up that I had been circumcised or now as I am proud to be circumcised.
As far as the curve goes, I had wondered myself if my tight circumcision had contributed to this but as the curve starts about halfway down the shaft am not too sure.
Cheers
Chris

Good morning Chris,

Although could occur on rare occasion we see very few overzealous or aggressive pediatric
circumcisions.  Babies have remarkable capacity to regenerate and correct a less than optimal result.  Have you noted this condition since a young boy an did you acquire this in
adolescence or adulthood?

More likely you are one of 3% of men who have a noticeable bend of their penis on erection.  Typically this is caused by
female above traumas, but could also be your rolling over a nocturnal erection without your even being aware.

The remedies include traction, medications generally speaking do not work that well.  Surgery usually does but reserved once your curvature is stable for a good 6 months and during this time you are pain free.  The AUA in their most recent advisory has stated they do not believe Vitamin E to be efficacious.
