What is the Prevelance of Peyronie's Disease?

Statistics about how many men are affected by Peyronie's Disease vary widely.  The reason for that is, most men do not report it or go see their doctor for diagnosis. Recently Dr. Jon L. Pryor wrote that an autopsy study suggested Peyronie's may have a prevalence of 22 percent.   That's right! He said 22%.  That number indicates that Peyronie's is very under-reported.

He also stated that Peyronie's Disease is fairly common, yet most men and physicians don't know anything about it.  Some men develop Peyronie's in their 30's, but there is an age related increase as men age.
