In brief: Safe and healthy

It is safe to masturbate.
Make sure you do it in the privacy of your home and as long as it does not interfere with your ability to function or overake your life there is nothing wrong with that. People have physiologic needs and sometimes they need to be met. This can be healthy for body and mind.
