Peyroni's disease often proceeds benign, and suddenly appeared plaques in a penis, disappear independently within 6 — 12 months. If it there is no disease will not pass independently any more and will perhaps demand treatment. Symptoms of a disease of Peyroni (a chordee, pains, frustration of an erection) can progress towards improvement or deterioration within 1 — 1.5 years after their emergence. After these terms conservative therapy as a rule is not effective, and results of surgical treatment are stablest.
Chordees can be inborn and acquired. They are characterized by lack of plaques in a white of cavernous bodies. However at cavernous bodies there are tyazh of connecting fabric (chord) which cause chordees. Inborn and acquired diseases of an urethra (a hypospadias, a stricture) can be other reasons of such curvatures. The expressed curvatures occur at 2 — 3% of all men. Small curvatures take place much more often and are not considered as pathology.

Antagonists of calcium (a drug injection verapamil in a plaque) apply proteolytic enzymes (lidaza), Dimexidum, steroids (hydrocortisone), etc. to topical treatment. For physical therapy use фонофорез the specified medicinal substances, laser therapy and so forth. However all these methods have very low performance and often serious side effects. If conservative treatment did not help within 1 — 2 years, offer patients operation. Surgical treatment of a disease of Peyroni and chordees most effectively.
