A new study says that men who have bent penises possess a higher risk of many forms of cancers. The condition is called as Peyronie’s Disease and affects men after 40. It is caused by scar tissue, called plaque that forms inside the penis and makes it to bend upward or to the side. Researchers say that a gene that is behind the bent penises could have links to cancer. As per a leading Hyderabad daily, scientists in Houston, Texas, studied more than 48,000 men with the condition and a million with erectile dysfunction. They claim that those with a bent penis were ten percent more likely to develop a tumour. The research further revealed that 42 percent were more likely to get stomach cancer, almost 20 percent more prone to skin cancer and 39 percent more likely to get testicular cancer. They were also 43 percent more likely to get stomach cancer, almost 20 percent more prone to skin cancer and 39 percent more likely to get testicular cancer. Most men with this disease can have sex but for some, it’s difficult or painful. Experts say that it is not necessary to go for treatments as the condition can fade on its own as well.
