I have swelling just below the head I my penis on my penis shaft?

Inflammation.: Swelling of the skin around the head of the penis could be a sign of inflammation or even a penile skin infection known as balanitis. I recommend carefully cleaning the foreskin with soapy water, keeping it dry, and having your primary care provider or urologist look at it as soon as you can.

Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

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.

Inguinal hernia surgery16 days ago-have some scrotal swelling. To my surprise this afternoon the base of my penis shaft is swollen. Is this normal?

Inguinal hernia surgery16 days ago-have some scrotal swelling. To my surprise this afternoon the base of my penis shaft is swollen. Is this normal?

Yes, to be expected: The area where your hernia was repaired (inguinal canal) is able to communicate with the tissues around the penis and the scrotum. However, new swelling at this time (> 2 weeks out) sounds like it needs to be seen and evaluated. Contact your surgeon to be checked out. Good luck.

What are these two small bumps in the bottom left side of my penis shaft?

Many Possibilities: They may be normal glands or hair follicles, however, they may also be genital warts (hpv). They would need to be seen to diagnose more accurately.

I have a cluster of flesh coloured lumps bottom end, upper-left side of my penis shaft. I have tried freezing them off but they don't disappear fully.

Stop freezing: They are most likely HAIR FOLLICLES and are in the layer BELOW the epidermis! THEY ARE NORMAL. But if they "bother" you see a Dermatologist! Hope this helps Happy New Year Dr Z

Dark/Soft/unchanged long time size bump on the middle of the bottom side of the penis shaft. Surrounded by a dark skin and looks like a line goes down?

Dark/Soft/unchanged long time size bump on the middle of the bottom side of the penis shaft. Surrounded by a dark skin and looks like a line goes down?

Bumps on penis: The bumps may be ingrown hairs, pimples, or warts, they may also be due to an std. So, it may be minor or a bit more involved. In any case your doc can determine what it is and treat it. Dark damp places can make all of this worse. Plaque is also a possibility, especially if your penis curves. The very best to you.

Can a lump on the bottom of the penis shaft be potentially testicular cancer?

Can a lump on the bottom of the penis shaft be potentially testicular cancer?

I'm not: Clear what you mean by bottom. Base means where your penis attaches at the pubis, bottom to me means along the shaft from base toward glans/foreskin if you still have one. Testes are in the scrotum. When you have such a consern, since I can't see it, you should show it to someone that knows normal from go to the urologist.

Get checked: What caused the swelling? Are you sexually active or using condoms? Any unprotected sexaul relations or protracted masturbation? I advise no manipulation or mediciation onless pain or rash. Additionally, if sexually active, get checked for sexual infection.

Sebaceous Cysts: These common scrotal and penile blocked oil glands or hair cells are not to be worried about. This is normal skin and a normal condition that some men get off and on as they age. If the spots get swollen and red then you may want to see your family doctor.
