Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
The description fits with one of the following---
1. Penile edema.
2. Penile abscess.
3. Penile cellulitis.
You need physical examination to come to a diagnosis.
The treatment is based on the diagnosis.
Kindly take medical advice asap as it is a risky ccondition and you need to go to the ER.
