I have swelling on my penis its been goin on


Q: I have swelling on my penis. its been goin on for 2 days. erection are painful like its going to explode. no blood in my urine. the head feels a lot more hard when erect to the touch. I have not had sex in 2 months and had one partner in the last 3 years. she is std hiv neg. I don't believe whats going on is a std. what are your thoughts?

Symptoms:  Swelling penis painful

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query to ATD,

It is actually difficult to make a comment on the likely differential diagnosis without actually seeing the swelling and local examination but by the description and 2 days history of it with harder glans penis possibly indicates towards an infective condition called BALANITIS, which is infection of the glans and can be treated with a course of antibiotics for a week. As you are sexually inactive for years now, unlikely to be an STD or HIV, so nevertheless please get yourself locally examined by a physician and a local swab may be taken for culture to rule out any infective cause for further delineating the treatment accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query,
