Patient Comments: Peyronie's Disease - Possible Causes

If known, what do you think was the cause of your Peyronie's disease?

Comment from: Buddy, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: July 11

I am prone to Tinea Versacolor, a skin condition that results in blotches on my skin. I usually get it on my upper body. But shortly after it appeared on the head of my penis, I began to suffer the pain and scar tissue of Peyronie's. I never had any injury to that area. Since no one seems to know the cause of Tinea, I suspect there is some causal relationship.
