After sex or Masturbation with or without ejaculation. skin & vein at top of penis is tender to touch. painless at rest. 49. no medications.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

this could be due to vasculitis of the vein in the penis or due to small blood clot in the vein.

an ultrasound of the penis can check the veins there for blood clots.

do you have a doctor you can see or a urologist who can examine the area

and order an ultrasound of the veins to check for inflammation or blood clots?
