Why does my penis hurt?

Why does my penis hurt?

Penis pain can be a symptom of many conditions. The most common are those with injuries, allergies, sexual transmitted infection (STI), and urinary tract infection (UTI).

Most common causes of penis pain

The most common causes of penis pain are:

  • Viruses that cause sexual transmitted infections
  • Bacteria that cause sexual transmitted infections
  • Other infections: Bacteria can cause bladder infections, urinary tract infections or urethritis (inflammation of the urinary tract).

A less common cause of penis pain

Less common causes of penis pain are:

1.    Stones in the bladder: They can break and cause pain as they pass through the urinary tract.

2.    The scar tissue on the shaft of your penis: is caused by repeated injuries and infections. Scar tissue causes a curved, painful erection.

3.    Allergic reaction: this may be due to soap, detergent or poisonous vines.

4.    Skin disorders: These can spread to the genitals and may be infectious or caused by an autoimmune disease.

5.    Poor hygiene: In uncircumcised men, bacteria associated with poor hygiene can cause Gran infections and inflammation under the foreskin. Your front skin may also be swollen and tight, with or without infection.

6.    Prostatitis: this is swelling and inflammation of the prostate.

7.    Sickle Cell Anaemia: This can cause Priapism, the medical name for painful long-term erections.


Rare and unusual cause of penis pain

The following are less common but possible causes of penis pain:

  1. Insect bites: mosquitoes, mites, spiders, etc.
  2. Human bites during sexual activity
  3. Injury due to difficulty in inserting or removing the urinary tract catheter
  4. Multiple collisions: road accidents, work accidents, etc. Hit an object like a baseball. Or go on horseback, by bicycle or by motorbike
  5. Priapism: This is term for an erection that lasts for hours and is actually painful and harmful. This can lead to gangrene as blood is trapped in the penis, loses oxygen, and is unable to nourish your tissues.
  6. Penile fracture: can occur during aggressive or uncoordinated sexual activity and is usually caused by an accident or falling partner into an erect penis. The erectile tissue under the skin can rupture, causing severe damage, pain and bruising.


When penis pain is urgent

Seek immediate treatment for penis pain if:

  1.  A painful erection that lasts 3-4 hours.
  2. Very difficult to urinate.
  3. Severe blow to the groin following an accident or sports injury.
  4. Fracture of your penis.

When seeing a doctor for penis pain

All kinds of pain and irritation in your penis that last for hours or longer, you should see a doctor. Especially if there are other symptoms of the disease accompanied with it.

Home treatment for penis pain

For mild injuries and inflammation, ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce penile pain symptoms.

 Frequently Asked Questions On Penis Pain

Here are some frequently asked questions about penis pain.

1. Why does my penis hurt when I urinate?

The most common cause of painful urination is inflammation of the urinary tract (UTI). Men can also develop inflammation of the urinary tract from a sexually transmitted Disease (STD or sexually transmitted infection, STI) or an enlarged prostate which is more common in older men. Other causes of painful urination affect bladder stones, some anti-cancer drugs, and kidney treatment.

2. Why does my penis hurt when I get an erection?

There are several possible causes for a painful erection. One such cause is called Peyronie's disease, which causes scarring along the inside of the penis, which stretches and hurts when the penis is erect. In addition, priapism, or prolonged erections (4 hours or more) can also cause pain, which can be caused by drug therapy, especially injection into the penis. It can also be caused by sickle cell anaemia.

3. Which STD Causes Penis Pain?

Most sexually transmitted diseases (or sexually transmitted infections) can cause pain in your genitals. Usually, chlamydia, gonorrhoea and herpes can cause pain in your genitals, but if you suspect you have a sexual infection, it is very important to get treatment as soon as possible. These infections usually don't go away on their own and put your sexual partners in danger.

4. Why is the tip of my penis itchy?

If you have a foreskin, the tip of the penis becomes itchy and mild sexually transmitted infections cause swelling in the area. This is common with poor hygiene and increased secretions, causing bacteria and fungi to grow and can cause itching. If you experience severe genital itching, contact your doctor for an evaluation.

5. Why does it burn when I urinate?

Painful urination can be caused by inflammation of the urinary tract. This is usually the result of a sexual infection (STI) or a urinary tract infection (UTI). Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia, along with herpes, are some of the most common sexual infections and can cause pain in the genitals. If you suspect you have sexually transmitted infection, you should seek medical evaluation and treatment immediately.
