How will Dr. Lowe diagnose Peyronie’s disease?Treatment will begin with a thorough assessment, including a physical exam and complete medical history. Dr. Lowe can usually detect scar tissue in a non-erect penis. If an erection is necessary, you will be given an injectable medicine that causes the penis to become erect. Further testing is seldom needed. However, Dr. Lowe may recommend imaging tests to verify specifics about the nature and location of the scar tissue or plaque build-up causing symptoms.
