Which type of UTI cause penis swelling?

None!: A uti, or urinary tract infection, is an infection involving the bladder (mostly) and the urethra or kidneys (less often). It can cause burning and pain with urination, urinary frequency and urgency. The penis should not become swollen with a simple uti.

4 months ago I vigorously masturbated for an hour and caused upper penis shaft swelling. Subsided and now have many new penis veins.Is this a concern?

4 months ago I vigorously masturbated for an hour and caused upper penis shaft swelling. Subsided and now have many new penis veins.Is this a concern?

No concern: The prolonged masturbation was an overuse injury and trauma to the penis leading to inflammation, redness, and swelling and, as a result, an apparent venous congestion and visible prominence of veins. These may gradually regress with time depending on degree/frequency of masturbation going forward. Regardless, the presence of these prominent veins do not pose any threat to your health. ...Read more

Could excessive and rough masturbation cause balanitis penis aches after masturbation and is in pain and is red and scarred and appears swollen?

Could excessive and rough masturbation cause balanitis penis aches after masturbation and is in pain and is red and scarred and appears swollen?

Certainly can be: That certainly could be the cause (though i'm not sure what you mean by "scarred"). If the symptoms don't resolve after stopping for a few days, i would certainly recommend seeing a physician to make sure nothing else is going on. But swelling and redness can definitely occur on the penis just like they can on any other body part that is used "excessively." good luck to you! ...Read more

Need treatment: Hi Joseph, This has to be uncomfortable. Have you been circumcised? If not you should seriously consider it because the condition usually progresses and removing the foreskin usually takes care of the problem. First, though, you should be checked for diabetes as that can cause balanitis. Good luck ...Read more
