Is there any rash on the penis ?

Any recent sexual encounter ?

There is no rash. It's just like swelling that's uneven and seems to put pressure on the uretha maybe when I urinate and also makes the head of my penis sensitive to the touch. Yes I had sex three months ago nearly but this pain has only been a problem for a month now.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Also at times it makes my testicles ache and feel discomfort. I've had a similar swelling before but not like this, it was in the same place around two years ago but it wasn't as bad as this and also didn't effect urinating or make my testicles ache. It was caused before from an ex girlfriend masturbating me for too long and it caused swelling in this place and maybe I have aggravated this ?

thanks for the information

This most likely is an infection in the area. Possibility of urethritis is also there. I would suggest to get it examined and have some lab work done. You will need a course of antibiotic to settle the infection. You can share further details/images as well

Good luck

Do you think I should just see my local gp first and then they will advise me as opposed to going to a sexual health clinic first?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I'm out at work now, can I possibly send an image later today please?

Excessive masturbation can cause pain and swelling in penis but as I said you need to get it examined
