I woke up three hours ago and I still have an erection

Patient : I woke up three hours ago and I still have an erection what do I do
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. Sometimes the erection can s tay on for a really long time, if it lasts beyond 4 hours, you need to go see a urologist. If you have a tight foreskin, it could be due to blockage of venous drainage or paraphimosis. This can be diagnosed only on physical examination. Hope this was helpful, Regards.
