I just noticed my urethra , on one side is swollen there's a little red dot and it's swelled up first time I have got this what could it be ?

Herpes in theory, but those are generally MULTIPLE shallow ulcers and first episde is usually severe.
Local irritation can occur w/out infection. ...Read more

Its size widely varies and will slowly increase over time. Clinically, it's painless most of the times, but it may irritates and bleeds. ...Read more

After I pee then wipe, there is bright red blood. My urine seems light colored though. Is it possible that it's just wound at the end of my urethra?

After I pee then wipe, there is bright red blood. My urine seems light colored though. Is it possible that it's just wound at the end of my urethra?

Need check up: Bleeding anywhere in the body is a cause for concern. So watch yourself more closely and use white (toilet paper)paper to wipe.

Penile injury?: I cannot imagine what "penis exercises" you might have been doing. What's the purpose? Or do you mean you were masturbating? Anyway, it sounds like you injured yourself. (I hope you didn't insert anything into the urethra!) If you fractured your penis (bent it painfully when erect), it could be dangerous. Better see a doctor ASAP for diagnosis and advice, preferably a urologist. ...Read more
