Question: Swollen Penis But No Pain?


 lime23 - Mon Oct 22, 2007 6:07 pm

Im a 20 year old male with no previous issues with this part of my body. I woke up today and relized my penis was very swollen but there is no pain or discomfort. Should I see a doctor or do you know what may have caused this?

User avatar Hi Lime23,

If you continue to have this swelling or an erection for more than 4 hours you should have this evaluated since there can begin to be damage to the penis with prolonged erections.

Best wishes.
