Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erection pain

11/25/2008

Question:

About a month ago, I noticed a slight pain/twinge in the top portion of the glans of my penis during erections. Since then each erection has continued to have some discomfort around the opening. When experiencing extreme erections it becomes painful at the end of my penis, especially when my urethra constricts. Could this be a prostate problem? There are no signs / symptoms of infection, coloring looks normal, and I only have intercourse with my wife.

Answer:

Could be infection among other reasons. Please see your primary care doctor or your urologist.
