Hard Flaccid Syndrome

What is Hard Flaccid Syndrome?

Hard Flaccid Syndrome is a condition affecting the penis and is of unknown aetiology among men.  It is a hugely distressing condition and at Core Body Clinic our age range is18 to 40.  It is characterised by penile stiffness when the penis is in a flaccid state and flaccid size.  The penis is essentially stiff to the touch, it is engorged and rubber in texture, and is often accompanied by a change in size or shape of erection.  There may be a loss in nocturnal erections and it may require a greater degree of stimulation to achieve an erection.  However, the most common reason for someone seeking help is because of alarming changes in penile shape and size.  There is a feeling of embarrassment, loss of confidence and often deep anxiety. It is different from peyronines disease because there are no visible signs of tissue scarring and plaque formation. Nevertheless, it is a distressing and poorly understood condition.

Prostatitis and CPPS

Chronic Prostatitis or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndome (CPPS) are often considered Synonymous where pain in the pelvis is of a persistent nature and at Core Body Clinic in Reading, Berkshire we see a large number of men who have been suffering for a very long time.   In Prostatitis, there is often as an infection affecting the prostate gland.  However, only about 5-10% are actually bacteria related with the vast majority related to inflammation or non-specific pain syndromes. Prostatitis can affect all men at any age and accounts for about ¼ of all pelvic pain conditions, genital or urinary conditions in young to middle aged men.  Where pain persists after a period of time and after medicine has failed to resolve pain, CPPS or Chronic Prostatitis is a diagnosis assigned.
