Can Masturbation Cause Curvature Of The Penis?

Can masturbation cause curvature of the penis? Curvature of the penis is a natural occurrence in some males.  However, curvature of the penis can be a symptom of Peyronie's disease.  Symptoms of penis curvature is a bend in the penis during erection or narrowing of the penis while erect. 

The chief cause for curvature in the penis is trauma or injury to the penis correlated with sexual activity.  Many males  are often unaware of the injury during the course of action.  Rough masturbation can cause curvature of the penis.  The shaft of the penis can be injured due to the hard pulling or bend during masturbation.  The reason for the curvature is due to the wound-healing process after masturbation.  The result of the injury is a collection of permanent scar tissue under the skin of the penis.  The section of the scar tissue is no longer flexible.  When the penis becomes erect, the scar tissue area will not stretch although other areas of the penis will. 

There are currently no risk factors attributable to the curvature of the penis.  Some males have a natural curvature of the penis.  The treatment for this curvature is a Corticosteroid injection into the fibrous band of tissue of the penis.  If medicine does not help and the individual is unable to masturbate or have intercourse due to the curvature, surgery is an option for correction.  Surgery to correct curvature carries the risk of impotence in some cases.  The option of surgery should be a last alternative if intercourse and masturbation acts are a impossible as a result of the curvature.  It is important to take care during the act of masturbation to avoid injury and possible curvature of the penis.
