This is something I've just discovered and have been reading into. I'm wondering if I have it. My penis doesn't bend in the middle, rather the bend starts from the base. My penis is straight but its off center a few degrees to the right, and I've noticed it more since I started PE. I always thought this was because of years of masturbating with my right hand, but do you think it could be peyronie's disease? What are the treatments if this is the case?

You should know that most people have a slight curve which is not a big deal. If you're really worried about it, then you should go and ask your doctor but I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Here's a link if you're interested: Peyronie's disease - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. About the treatments of this disease, it seems that extenders are a good option according to recent medical studies!
Last thing is if you really think that the bend increases with PE, it might be because of uneven jelqing and you should pay attention to your technique, be sure that you use the same amount of strength with both hands. You can also use PE to fix curves. Have a look at this: https://www.pegym.com/forums/beginne...tml#post181332

Hmm, I don't have this disease and my curve is towards my left, which is more apparent when I am flacid to semi erect. It's not a big one, just enough that its noticable. Most likely due to me having under-developed PC muscles. And I do have a huge vein on my lower right part of the shaft. Dunno if that aids the cuve.
So I've just started jelqing against the curve. All of my strokes are against the curve.Future owner of a glorious cock.

Curvature is very common. The incidence of Peyronie's disease has been debated, but it is not very common, and it doesn't usually become apparent before early middle age.
Most of us are asymmetrical. Our faces look different to us when we see our reflection from a pair of mirrors (as it looks to others) rather than just one mirror. Many of us have different length arms and legs. A sizable percentage of women have slightly different sized breasts.
If one corpus cavernosum is a little bigger than the other, the penis will have some lateral curvature.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19138361 is a study using an extender, which decreased the curve by 4 degrees at average during a six month period (and increased length by slightly more than 1 cm).
The results, as such, were mild. However, I believe they would have seen much better results if they had also incorporated some PE routines into it, such as jelqing against the curve. I know my erect curve decreases from PE (but my flaccid curve has increased). Likely the (apparent) increase in flaccid curve is due to the flaccid size increasing by a fair bit and due to that it is simply more visible, I don't think the actual degree is any worse.

It makes a huge difference as to whether one has simply congenital curvature or Peyronie's Disease. Congenital curvature to the left or the right is present in about 13-15% of men. Curvature to the left is more than 4 times more common than curvature to the right. Congenital curvature is not associated with any other symptoms and doesn't get worse. It becomes apparent after puberty.
Peyronie's Disease, on the other hand, occurs in about 1-4% of men (although some have argued it has been under diagnosed), usually becomes apparent at around age 40 or above, and may be associated with connective tissue disorders in the hands and feet. It is often associated with plaque formation in the penis due to chronic scarring, and it becomes worse in 40-50% of men over time, and sometimes leads to erectile dysfunction. Nor is treatment necessarily "recommended" for Peyronie's Disease if the curvature is not great enough to cause problems with intercourse.
