In brief: Fungal infection
A fungal infection in your hands is contagious to yourself and to other persons you touch.
That answers your question.

In brief: Get treatment
It is important to have the fungal infection on your hands treated, it is not expensive, but left untreated will damage the nails and invite other infections.
You are not more likely to get fungus on your penis by masturbating than you are already at such risk.
