    I'm 17 and i small swelling appeared on the side of my penis. Im average size, just under 6 inches. The swelling was quite tender, and now its gone. but my penis kinda hurts when im getting an erection but not when i have one. also, my erections dont seem as full or strong as they used to be and its harder to get an erection and they are less frequent, which is worrying. any help on what this could be would be great. PS. im not sexually active and havent had sex, so i know its not an STD

    my right foot has been swollen for the last five years approx. it was x rayed and there was nothing broken. ive never had swelling of any other body parts and my left foot is normal. i stopped wearing high heeled shoes as a result and i have to buy bigger more comfortable shoes as the right foot needs more room to be comfortable.when im wearing the flat shoes the swelling doesnt appear so bad but if i was to wear high heels for a day, the swelling increases. the swelling is at the top of my foot and also there is a hard swelling at the right front of my ankle.

    I am 15 years old and have very noticeable swelling around the base of my penis on my right side around the prostate area. It is very tender and it is most noticeable when I have an erection. The swelling continues into my scrotum area for about 2cm and it looks like an extra testicle at the top of my scrotum. I have to urinate regularly and it sometimes keeps my up at night. I have no pain when I ejaculate or urinate though and there is no blood. Anyone that can help me or has gotten over these symptoms please help me, I am very worried..!

    You just need to c a urologist for a massage and Antibiotics. You'll probably b good as new i a week. God bless you Son.

    Anyone recognise my condition. I have been suffering for 6 years with periodic rigors & systemic shock symptoms that leave me with a swollen penis. I have seen 6GPs, a sexual health clinic & am currently seeing 3 consultants: urologist, dermatologist & immunologist who all say they have seen nothing like it. The swelling is all the skin covering the penis, not just the foreskin. It used to go back to normal after a few days but is now persistantly swollen, although this varies in degree. At its worst the swelling spreads to the scotum and the skin dries out and splits open torn apart by the swollen lump beneath. Now I have a persistant lump they plan to do a biopsy. At its worse its about the size and weight of a grapefruit but usually the lump is no bigger than half a hen's egg.

    I play a lot of sports and although normal for your penis to shrink, I've recently noticed that when exercising when my penis gets sore and achey, it feels irritable and feels that it needs to be scratched but there's no specific area of itching feeling. Also, it now takes hours for my penis to go back to it's normal size. I've also noticed with an erection that there is a non painful soft swelling along the shaft of the penis.

    The swelling will go down, it just takes a while, I found after my recent hydrocele operation that after about four weeks the swelling reduces down alot and you can walk normally again. Warm baths can be a nice relief, keep an eye out for your wound opening up and for infection, it took 3 weeks of antibiotics for mine to go away and for the wound to seal completely. It does take quite a while for everything to go back to normal size though.

    It will definately go away - 3-4 weeks

    Hello. Just over a year ago I was diagnose with an ovarian cyst which caused much pain and swelling of my abdomen. I had the cyst removed aswel as a fallopien tube, due to swelling. Since my surgery my consultant told me that the swelling to my abdomen would lessen, but this dosent have seemed to happen. I have tryed to exercise to lessen the swelling. Have you got any tips or ideas which may help, as the swelling reduces my confidence?

    I found this out, its Lymphocele This is a hard swelling that suddenly appears on the shaft of the penis after sex or masturbation. It happens when the lymph channels in your penis are temporarily blocked. Lymph is a clear fluid that forms part of the body’s immune system. The swelling should soon subside and will not cause any permanent problems. basically anyone else who has this problem, it might be caused after masturbation, remember to keep it clean and try to use less lubricant if you want to avoid this, but it is harmless anyway

    This is natural if you are not circumcised. The best way is to ensure that the foreskin closes the head of the penis but if you leave it retracted, the foreskin might keep swelling and you will have a difficult closeing it and imagine how more paininful it will be to walk around with a retracted penis because it will become too smaller than head of menis. If the foreskin is swollwen and the penis is closed, you are lucky. You might stay for sometime in this condition but try to open and clean the little opening till it is able to retract completely as the swelling subsidises. For how long, if its your first time it will heal after 2 weeks but if its the second time it might take even 4 months. Be patient. The main coz in my case was because my girlfriend had used a poor quality aphrodiasic lubricant.

    im 51 going through the menopause having burning up feeling head hurts but most belly swelling up like im 7month preg is there any thin that can take the swelling down im not taking anythin as all my family hve past away with cancer and iv bin told H R T can bring cancer on quicker. i would be very gratefull if u could tell me what i could do to get swelling down,

    I had an infection in my penis when I was around 10 or 11 years old and had to have an injection to stop the swelling. When it eventually died down, the infection went away and I've cleaned my penis thoroughly everytime I have a bath or shower. Since then, my penis hasn't grown much whatsoever and I'm 17 years old, coming up to 18. I haven't had sex yet and it's making me very conscious about having my first time and an unusually small penis. Any help?

But last year february 2012 i stopped masterbating n then masterbated in march 2012 i.e. after 1 month (approx) and i noticed later that i had swelling on my penis (the skin, everything inside the skin was fine i guess) and that lasted for 1 whole day.

    Hi I am 25 and have really bad White vaginal discharge. It soaks my underwear every day. I am also very swollen and sore. Sex is very painful at the moment due to the swelling and I can't go out for to long as I get so uncomfortable and painful. I have tried thrush creams and wearing loose cotton underwear and clothes. I noticed it started when u had my son 4 years ago. I had stitches when I had him and most of the swelling usually starts at the end of the scar. The swelling has been there for about 3 months and the pain too. Please help.

    I suffer from Lymphodema in the lower left leg after conatcting Strep A Septacemia (April 09). I had severe swelling when I left the hospital. Once the severe swelling subsided I found my leg swelled if I did not move regulary. The only treatment I was offered (that worked) were compression socks which helped to a certain extent. I only used these for a few months and just put up with minimal swelling. In February I went on the Cambridge Diet and I lost 3 stone and that coupled with drinking 4 litres of water a day has resulted in no swelling at all, although the leg (mainly the ankle) are only slightly bigger than the right. Although the programme highlighted the serverity of the conbdition it was disapointing that drinking water can help such a condition. Enjoying the series!
