Brief Answer:
damage to corpus cspongiosum muscle

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

If you have normal erection & ejaculation during masturbation then its not a major problem. Considering your age what you currently need is some lifestyle modifications as STRESS & ANXIETY are the main culprits for this type of symptoms. You need to stop smoking, if you are obese kindly lose some weight. Regular exercises has shown to be very helpful.
If the symptom persists kindly visit a Urologist, he will examine your penis and come to a conclusion if there is any damage to Corpus spongiosum muscle, also you may be advised few blood investigations like Serum testosterone levels. Depending on the finding you may be given some drugs for sometime.
Because of your young age my only advise for you is Lifestyle modifications. You can take erection enhancing drugs like Sildenafil, kindly speak with your doctor for a prescription.

Brief Answer:
Surgical correction possible

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
I can understand your problem. Drugs are not much helpful, but it can be taken as a temporary measure. From your history as I already said, there could be damage to the Corpus spongiosum muscle or there could be injury to ligaments which support the base of the Penis. This can be confirmed only after clinical examination. Hence I advised you to visit a Urologist.
Yes there are surgical procedures which are helpful to strengthen the base of the penis, most surgical procedures do plication of these muscles. But it all depends on the expertise of the treating surgeon. If the muscles are too weak, there are chances that your doctor might advise you to go for muscle graft. Hope I have clarified your doubts. Please ask if you have more questions.
If you do not have any further clarification you can close the discussion. Kindly rate & review my answer. Wish you good health.

Dr Arif

so if there is damage, I can take erection drugs in the meantime, and it won't worsen any damage?

Brief Answer:
Drugs can further worsen the condition

Detailed Answer:
H XXXXXXX
I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons.
Coming back to your question, no its not advisable to take these medicines before being examined by a urologist. If the penile supporting muscles are too weak it can harm you more. So kindly get examined yourself first before taking any medicines.

Medicines are an option, but I highly recommend to use them after confirmation by an urologist.
