    Peyronie's Disease

    I have recently been inflicted with this disease. If you have it, you definitely know it. For those who are curious:

    http://www.urologyhealth.org/adult/i...at=11&topic=50


    As I ride 6,000 to 8,000 miles per year, I can't help but wonder if bicycling is the cause.

    Have any other men been afflicted with this?

    Your link's not working, but googling it, it sounds like one of those problems that I, for one would like to avoid at all costs. The website I saw said the cause is unknown. What does your doc say? Did he tell you not to ride?

    My doc did not know that biking was a cause or that it would make things worse. There seems to be so little info on this issue. I guess because it isn't something that you want to talk about. But it appears to be relatiively common (1 to 4%).

    I think this is the correct link.

    So it's a problem middle aged men suffer. I see no reason to blame cycling.

    I had read a little about it when reading about Dupuytrens contracture. I wonder if it might be hereditary like dupuytrens. It really doesn't seem like cycling would do that and if it did all of the recumbent folks would be tellimg us about it. Please let us know as you find out more and for this one please no pics.

    It will allow your diagnostician to use Throckmorton's sign to full advantage.

    Only one of my friends has mentioned having Peyronie's, and he has never been a bicyclist. The problem self-resolved over a few months.

    Colonoscopies and now urologic ailments -- no doubt important topics for 50+ folks like us, but disturbingly off topic. Next we'll be discussing Metamucil and denture adhesives... where does it all end??
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"
