I know what Peyronie's Disease is but am uncertain what you mean by "withdrawal of the penis". Peyronie's Disease is commonly found in older men. It is a curvature of the penis as a result of calcification that has built up inside the penis. This can make it difficult for men to penetrate and can be extremely painful.
The sooner men go for treatment the better. Today there are good safe surgical techniques with good outcomes. Refer your dad to a urologist who will diagnose and treat him.
