In brief: No

Masturbation will not make your penis smaller or cause any other ill-effect.

Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

In brief: No, ....

Multiple orgasms have not been known to cause shrinking penis; so multiple masturbation.
Excessive? How Excessive are you referring to? But it is known anything excessive equates to overindulgence & obsession, which may bother "normal" life as described in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter05.html. More? Contact me and I can help.
