Is the kinking a recent development or has it been like this for long?

Very recently

Hard lump under the skin and bending of the penis usually is self-explanatory and indicates a most probable diagnosis of Peyronie's disease.

But it still needs to be confirmed by a doctor preferably a urologist.

It is a rare disease that has a lot of experimental treatments because no treatment is foolproof.

As a rule, if there is no pain and it is not hindering your sexual performance, no treatment is required.

Usually, oral medications are very less effective in Peyronie's disease. Most of the treatments are locally directed like injections into the penis and shockwaves etc. The last resort is surgery to remove the plaque.

You should see your doctor who can discuss these options and get the best available treatment for you.

If you have any doubts, please let me know.
