Stand Up for Peyronie's

Why we need your help

Around 1 in 20 UK men suffer from Peyronie’s disease, which causes the erect penis to bend and shorten, and can be painful as well as making sex difficult or impossible.

Our research has found the true extent of how the illness also affects mental health.

A staggering 60% of men admit they have suffered depression following their diagnosis, with a quarter saying it has negatively affected their relationship - 1 in 10 relationships have broken down completely. A quarter of men with Peyronies (24%) are no longer sexually active.

20% of those surveyed felt they would be laughed at if they talked about their condition with the result that over in ten sufferers have not told anyone about their problem – not even a doctor.

For those men who have visited a doctor, 45% felt their doctor wasn’t helpful, with 15% told nothing could be done to help and 40% not offered any treatment at all.

We are fundraising to provide greater support for men with Peyronie’s disease and raise awareness. Your donation will help us to reach out to men with this isolating condition.
