swelling on the upper side of the penis, have pain on movement .
Last week, as soon as i woke up in the morning,i felt like masterbating which i did by lying down on my blanket. But as soon as  i came i held my penis with my hand to stop the flow of the semen and went and discharged the semen in the toilet.Just seconds after this i saw my penis swollen up from the top and the bottom side,I dont know wheter the swelling is because of masterbating or was it already there when i woke up. There was pain also but after 2-3 days the swelling was shrinking and had become soft and the pain was also getting less but again it appeared last night and the swelling became a little bit harder. The swelling is like a lump on the top part of the penis where the penis statrs from the body and also i think there is a swollen vein or something like a hard wire preceding it which also pains on touching or any movement of the penis. there is a sliht swelling on the other side of the penis also. Its making me worried, i havnt been to a dcotor thinking that it will get better.

Looking forward for your help.
thank you

Difficult to say without evaluation.  You can consider being evaluated for a UTI or STD.  Urine tests like a urinalysis as well as tests for gonorrohea and chlamydia can be considered.  

Penile vein thrombosis can also result in a swollen vein.  If this is the case, it can be conservatively treated with aspirin or anti-inflammatories.  Further evaluation can be made with an ultrasound of the affected area.  

I would obtain an evaluation by a urologist for a more definitive diagnosis.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
