Tear / Hole in Penis Corona?

Just before I begin; my understanding of the term "corona" is that it is the skin that connects the back of your shaft with the penis head. As shown on http://teenhealthsource.com/puberty/male-anatomy-parts-2/

Anyway, I have found a small circular tear/hole in this connecting piece of skin and I am feeling very worried about it.
Here is a crude diagram I drew: http://imgur.com/PVhZvaH

I presume it has resulted from masturbating - how else could it have occured? Will it heal? If so - how long??

Thanks for any help

Hi!
The region you are discussing is the frenulum. This can tear during masturbation and can heal on its own. However, if a major artery is injured or if you have diabetes or fungal infection then healing may be delayed. If the tear does not heal by 5-7 days then please consult your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
