Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Despite what many of us may have been told by our parents, teachers, or religious leaders, masturbation does not cause physical injury or harm to the body. We’ve all heard the many myths about masturbation. Here are some of the leading myths:
• Masturbation leads to blindness
• Masturbation causes you to become impotent later in life
• Masturbation leads to decrease in penis size
• Masturbation permanently reduces libido, desire, and/or sexual performance
• Masturbation permanently reduces the quantity or quality of semen

We are happy to report that all of these myths and misconceptions have been proven to be false by the medical community.

Despite the fact that there are no physical health consequences that may result from the practice of masturbation, there are emotional aspects that should be taken into consideration.
Masturbation may have negative social consequences if one becomes preoccupied with self-pleasure to the point that it interferes with one’s job and one’s social relationships.

Most of concerns associated with the act of masturbation stems from the guilt within a person.
As far as ejaculation time is concerned People have very different stamina levels and it can even vary depending on the physical circumstances and psychological issues
The ejaculation itself usually lasts around couple of minutes only.
From your description it seems circumcision will help you. You can consult a urologist for the same.
Regarding the cost of the treatment, it depends on the place and varies from hospital to hospital. The total cost of medicines, duration of stay in the hospital are also variable according to the associated problems and complications.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Reduction in size of balls without any pain or discomfort is not indicative of any pathology or urinary infection. This can happen due to contraction of dartos muscle.
Please do not worry. This is a normal finding.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
