Pain In The Tip / Shaft of Penis

What is penile pain?

Penile pain is any pain associated with the base, head, or shaft of the penis. It can also affect the foreskin. An itching, burning, or throbbing sensation may accompany the pain. The pain can vary depending on what underlying condition or disease is causing it. If you have an injury, the pain may be severe and occur suddenly. If you have a disease or condition, the pain may be mild and may gradually get worse.

Any type of pain in the penis is a cause for concern, particularly if it occurs during an erection, prevents urination, or occurs along with discharge, sores, redness, or swelling.

There are a variety of causes for penile pain including peyronie's disease, priapism, balanitis, STIs, UTIs, injuries, phimosis & paraphimosis, or cancer.
