Peyronie's Treatment

Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy, in which high-energy rays are aimed at the plaque, has been used to treat Peyronie's disease. Like some of the chemical treatments for this condition, radiation therapy appears to reduce pain, but it has no effect at all on the plaque itself and can cause unwelcome side effects.
Other Experimental Treatments
Researchers have tried injecting chemical agents directly into the plaque associated with Peyronie's. These agents have included:
These types of treatment methods are still considered unproven because the research studies only included small numbers of people and lacked adequate control groups.
Steroids, such as cortisone, have produced unwanted side effects, such as the atrophy or death of healthy tissues.
Another treatment for Peyronie's disease involves iontophoresis, the use of a painless current of electricity to deliver verapamil or some other agent under the skin into the plaque.
