Probably not: Skin edema (swelling) can be caused by vigorously masturbating for a long period of time & not uncommon. This will resolve. Fracture of penis is theorectically possible if penis is forceably bent during masturbation. This would result in a hard, tender & painful bump with penile deviation at site of fracture.This would constitute an emergency and require surgical repair. Hope this is not the case. ...Read more

After masturbating last nigh and this morning 30 minutes my penis is swollen. little pain and it hasn't gone down. half of the tip is miss colored ?

Priapism: By your statement "it hasn't gone down", I suspect priapism which is an urological emergency (http://goo.gl/VofpXc). Change in coloration is worrisome too although "little pain" rather than tremendous pain is reassuring. Still, it's best to go to nearest ER or A&E. Don't wait for permanent damage to set in. ...Read more

Probably not need...: The visibility and diameter of penile dorsal veins highly vary but carry no clinical significance as long as you're well and sound in erection for coitus.
