Hi, I'm a 20...

Hi, I'm a 20 year old male and just about a week ago, I had what seemed like a sharp cramp (or charlie horse) at the base of my penis just after urinating. It reminded me of a muscle cramp so I dealt with it similarly to how I would a calf muscle by holding it till it went away which it did. But now, the area does feel a bit unusual; there's no pain but it does a bit sore. I was wondering if I need to go get this checked out or if it'll go away on its on? Could this be from over extortion?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I never had the pain until that afternoon when it happened. I would say relaxing by just not trying to contract my muscles down there seem to make it a lot better.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hm, I'm not on any medication nor do I have an STI if that helps. Okay thank you for your help!

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Where exactly is the pain located now?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Hello Dr. Chip, I would say at the base of my penis, I guess where the pelvis meets it.

Any actual tenderness there?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I would say generally no, it just feels like a bit of tension. Whenever I go to urinate, it does feel like whatever happened last week wants to happen again but so far it hasn't.

OK

This indeed sounds like a cramp around the suspensory ligament of the penis and nothing serious

But if it continues you need to have your prostate checked with an exam and a urinalysis since this may be referred pain from a prostate gland infection

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
