Question: Dark Purple Spot on Penis


 hockeyguy30 - Tue Mar 09, 2010 4:51 pm

I'm a little worried...two nights ago I was aroused masturbating and except of usually allowing for ejaculation, I held it tight to try and see if I could hold it back. I was successfully able to do it other then a little bit of semen dripping out. However, I noticed a dark purple spot (shown in pic) on the head of the penis with a two other smaller spots (not shown) and now I'm scared and I would like to know what it is and how they go away..Theres no pain, no itching or anything like that.

Any help is definitely appreciated.

User avatar Hello,What you have developed is a small superficial hematoma ie a small leakage of blood in to the skin due to presssure applied during masturbation.
This should settle in a couple of days.
If it persists you can show your doctor.As of now no medications may be necessary.
Best wishes.
