    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.

    This sounds like you may have given yourself an infection. Another possibility is similar to what happens when we try to pop pimples, but the "popping" is incomplete and they swell up into an embarassing lump. I'd give it a few days to see what happens. If it starts to go away on its own, then nature is taking care of it. If it swells more, or becomes painful, time to see a doctor.

    My right foot is always swollen, when I walk for some time.No other areas is swollen. What is the problem of this area, please help! This swollen foot does not have any pain and discoloration.

    I've had a sore throat for about a week now, I took a look today and can see that my tonsils are very swollen (patchy red and white) with a few white spots on them. My glands are very swollen as well. My tonsils are gradually getting more swollen. However, I have no other symptoms of tonsillitis; Having had it a couple times in my childhood I know its not that.

    My 9month son has a very swollen tongue. He has been to hospital with it and we have been told that its just the way its developed. Lately he has it sticking all of the time and also has lumps on his neck which the doctor says is just swollen lymph nodes. it is only one side that is swollen and the same side of his neck with the lumps. Could this be the same problem as the boy from the monday night programme? Who would i have to ask my doctor to refer me to?

    Hi I am 21 year old male. This morning I had sex with my girlfriend and then about half an hour later we had oral sex, and while she gave me oral sex my penis suddenly started to sting for about a minute then I looked at the back of my penis and there was a red swelling starting on the back of my penis it was only painful for that whole minute but there is no pain now and it is not painful when I urinate, it is still swollen with a soft lump near the top of my foreskin but there's also a line that is a tiny bit swollen which is reddish and it runs down my penis. I have no idea how this happened and not sure if its linked to this or Lymphocele. But I am a bit worried as this has never happened to me before.

    Hi, a few weeks ago me and my partner had vigorous sex. During the sex I heard a popping noise. I didn't think nothing of it. The following morning when I woke up I noticed a raised lump at the base of my penis and the left hand side of my penis was swollen near the top of it. The swelling went down after a few days but I have now noticed that the veins running up the shaft of my penis are very swollen and I can feel every single one. When my penis gets erect I can then feel a small ball shaped lump just below the head of my penis under my foreskin and in the process of it getting erect I get a small ache. I went to my gp and he gave me a muscle cream and anti-inflammatories but it doesn't seem to be taking it away. I'm actually getting worried now that this is something more serious. Can you help?

    Hi, I'm a 19 year old male and am currently having irritations in my penis. I've never had any problems before. I currently have a small clog of white lumps which leak small amounts of a liquid substance. I also have red dotting on the helmet of my penis. As well as this, either side above my penis, feels swollen and bruised and is very sore when I put pressure on it. It's just where y appendix is. I'm not sure if these have any link between them, but would greatly appreciate if someone could help me as its really bringing me down. Thanks.

    Hi Neil. Have you tried putting yoghurt on the head to soothe tenderness. Also try diaper cream. I know it sounds odd but toddlers usually have these same symptoms and diaper cream does the trick. Good luck with your penis and what not.

    I'm not even pregnant and I'm having the same exact symptoms. I do oral with my boyfriend but that's It and every time It happens to me it gets somewhat swollen and heavy feeling. It always happens I'm 16. I hope nothing serious is going on. The first time it was really swollen, like the whole thing, but every time he does it now it just gets red around the vagina and semi-swollen , but this time whenever I walk or sit down I feel like I'm sitting on something or like ssomething is pushing against my opening. Please reply, anybody. :(

    My penis hurts when I pee and it's swollen on the back of the head on the foreskin I think that's what it called but the skin the covers the penis and really hurts when I move or walk

    It can mean several things: 1) assuming you have a foreskin, it could mean that you have an infection under your foreskin. You need to keep the underside of your foreskin clean by washing regularly; 2) assuming you have a foreskin, it could mean that you haven't washed in a long time and lots of gunk has built up under your foreskin - not infection, necessarily, but just plain dirty gunk. Washing it should take care of it; 3) again, assuming you have a foreskin, it could mean that you've gotten the foreskin pulled back too far and it's acting like a rubber band now and chocking the glans (head). If this is the case, you need to get to an emergency room ASAP because this is dangerous.

    last week i was at a party, and one thing lead to another and i had sex, but the condom split. Ever since the left side of my penis has been swollen and i have noticed little lumps appear all over my penis, which i can squeeze and white striings stuf comes out what should i do because im to embarrassed to tell my mum, and i dont talk to my dad. i would go to the doctors but its 10mile away and im too embarassed to show it to any one
