Swelling at opening of penis


Q: At the opening of my penis where urine comes out of ,it appears to be swollen and sometimes red.On the underside of my scrotum there is a swollen,protuding,redish vein...or atleast I think its a vein.I have been tested for chlamydia,gonorrhea,and HIV AIDS which all came back negative.I have not had it examined yet but I have a appointment this weekend for this problem too get checked out.I've had this problem for about 7 8 months now and there hasnt been any pain or discharge.Too me,I feel as if maybe the tube which carries out urine and sperm is inflamed or infected.I'm 21 years old and sexualy active.I have had anal sex with one girl a few times with no condom which I heard can be bad for your penis but I am not sure if this may have caused this issue.I have included a picture and hope you can give me an Idea of what it may be.My worst fear is finding out it is something life threatening.So if you can please take a look at the pictures and shed some light on what it may be I would so greatly appreciate it.Thank You.
