Question
Almost 29, a few genital questions
============================
I'm going to be 29 in a few days. I haven't paid too much attention, but over the past couple of years, I would notice that my penis bends to the left fairly noticeably when erect. It looked like the right "chamber" was concave and the left one was convex. Secondly, I get a minor hourglass deformity near the base of my penis when flaccid or barely erect. Strangely enough, it can gradually look more like normal over the course of a few minutes after the skin can relax, but it still happens frequently. The last thing is, I have a very small bump mid-shaft underneath my penis, it's about the size of a small pimple, but not a pimple.

Some back history is that for a number of years while taking certain medications that threw my libido into high gear, I might caused myself some trauma through masturbation. I'm no longer required to take them and have stopped that habit, but now I want to make sure that if I caused myself any harm that I need to find out what it is and take care of it. I also thought I had a bad rash or jock itch because my scrotum would scale and the whole area would get red and puckery, very irritated looking. I started using cetaphil to wash with instead of soap and have already noticed improvement in skin condition.

Does any of this sound like I should seek medical help? I don't want to let a potential problem go unchecked. Thank you.

Dear,

The angulation of penis to one side is normal and most of the right handed men shall have angulation towards left side. We really don't bother about angulation if it is less than 30 degrees as it does not lead to any problems while having intercourse.

Hourglass deformity when non erect or partially erect is also normal. The penile structure needs to be evaluated only when erect and hence stop worrying about it.

Small swelling on the penis can be there because of fat collection or some vessel calcification. In either of the two circumstances it does not need any treatment.

It is good to hear that you have reduction in scrotal itching post switching over to Cetaphil. However, I shall still like you to apply antifungal powder twice daily for at least 3 weeks to get long term relief from itching.
