Some men with Peyronie's disease improve without treatment. Other men have mild symptoms that can be tolerated. Because they do not interfere with sexual activity, these men may choose not to seek treatment.
Only a minority of men eventually will require surgery.
Peyronie's disease does not develop into cancer or other serious conditions.
