User :   this happened awhile when i was a teenager. I was masterbating pretty hard and then the middle of my penis swelled up and it hurt bad! i let it and after a couple of days the swelling went down but now there is a black line in the middle and its tightening it like a rubberband. what is it a can it be fixed?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
Doctor :   I have seen the query.
User :   well
Doctor :   some times the scar formation is a bit too much
Doctor :   That can feel like what you have mentioned.
Doctor :   It will surely subside in a couple of days
Doctor :   I shall give you a smal l list of medication to take : User :   this happened 10 years ago. when its not erect its tight in the middle of the shaft but when its erect it looks fine
Doctor :   May I know , before that whether the tightening is gripping on it horizontally or vertically ?
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   horizontallyy
Doctor :   Ok, Are you able to retract the fore skin properly , till the glans ?
User :   yes i think
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Ok, How about erection, is it painful ?
User :   no
Doctor :   It is just the gripping affect ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   After erection, Does it allow ejaculation ?
User :   yes
User :   urinating is fine also
User :   the only way i can describe it like a rubber band tightening the middle of the shaft
Doctor :   Ok, The best thing I would suggest is the excission of the band - black band like that is causing problems, it can be a possibility causing the tightness
Doctor :   That would require a GP or Primary's physical examination.
User :   so i should make an appointment with my primary
User :   get it looked at
Doctor :   Yes that would be better, and if required I feel it is a bed side procedure and will hardly take 3-5 mins. with a xylocaine gel.
User :   thankyou
