Response from Men's Sexual Health:
Thank you for getting in touch. Because you have given us very little information, it is difficult to provide you with more detailed assessment of your condition.
Mens Penis come in all different shapes and sizes, most curve up when erect, some to the side and some not at all. However if you are noticing more of a bend, a distinct curvature when erect, that is either painful, making sex difficult, urination tricky, and wasn't previously like this, then it could be a sign of Peyronies Disease.
It is more common than most think, one in a hundred men suffer from it, but because men don't typiclally discuss concerns it doesnt get discovered. It usually occurs in middle age, although younger and older men can develop it too. It is a connective tissue disorder involving the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis, usually on the upper or lower side. Treatment is usually surgery based, but not the only option.
However like said at the begining, due to the lack of detail you provide, it doesnt mean this is what you have, but its an option. Consider the questions asked, does it hurt, is urination difficult, is sex painful? Regardless of the answers you should see you GP/Doctor soon to discuss the concerns where he will be able to give a proper diagnosis. Feel free to get back in touch and provide more details or ask further questions.
