Major swelling, need HELP please
Please excuse me from posting here, but this seems like the most reasonable website to turn to. I’m currently somewhat embarrassed to go to a doctor and ask about my problem, but if it doesn’t go away or if no one can assist me here, I guess I’m going to have to. Anyways here it is…
For no reason whatsoever, I developed nasty swelling on my penis. This is not a joke so don’t be laughing or anything. On my left side, right below the head of the penis there is swelling… The best way I could describe it is like a… hmm… vein like thing that appeared. I’m uncircumcised and my foreskin constantly is moving over it, which I don’t think is helping. The swelling’s height is about 1/3 of a centimeter and it’s about 2.5 cm long. It is parallel to the edge of the head of the penis, hence not extending down the shaft.
It had appeared about 1.5 weeks ago, then died down a little. Now it is back. I first noticed it after I got, ahem… handjob from my girlfriend. I don’t know if that’s in any way relevant to it, but that’s when it appeared.
Honestly, it is pretty blood embarrassing to be even writing about this. Does anyone have any clue as to what it is or what I can do about it? It’s not all that painful thankfully though. If anyone has any clue or tips I’d sure appreciate it. If not I guess I’ll have to go to a doctor, because this is getting to be a problem that is not going away. Thank you in advance for any help you might offer.
