Please help me I don't know what to do, I suddenly have a hard ball (pea sized) on the base of my penis inside the skin after a vigorous masturbation and it's hard. It doesn't hurt that much but I'm worried. :(

It could be a lymphocele. It is not a cause for panic, and certainly not for suicide.



It happens when the lymph channels are temporarily blocked after sex or masturbation. It should resolve soon. It may last for several months, but just get it checked my your doctor to make sure it's not anything else, but there is no reason to panic.

Thank you, I can't afford to go to a doctor because I don't have enough money. That's why I'm being paranoid.
I'm sorry to hear that. Is there any option for low income people where you live? Government plans? Health departments?

If it gets worse, red, hot to the touch, you see red lines coming from it, or it becomes painful, go to the doctor anyway. If it's a lymphocele, it will go away on its own and won't cause any harm.

Now it's getting red and shiny, hurts a little when moved or touched. :(((
Do you keep touching it? Leave it alone, and see what happens. Don't masturbate, don't poke it, don't do anything, for at least 48 hrs. If it continues to get more red, more painful, then see the doctor.
Auntjessie, there's a yellow liquid came out of it and it's itchy
I know you aren't going to want to hear this, but you're going to have to go to the doctor. Have you tried picking at it?
