I think it started in July (not certain) . I don't remember injuring it. There is no real pain but it is difficult during intercourse. I cannot send a photo

Well, at this point your best -- and really only -- option is to have a complete examination of your penis by a urologist. You will also need some laboratory tests for any possible systemic contributing factors.

The sooner you can be seen by a urologist the better as some conditions only get worse with time.

Does this make sense to you?
