Hello
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Due to massage and pressure on penis injury to capillaries (small blood vessels) occurred which resulted in small collection of blood. It resulted in swelling and redness. It usually fades in a week but as you have mentioned that it has increased a little, this happened probably because continuous self checking of the lesion again and again. If there is no pain and fever then there is nothing to worry. Don't take undue stress, just take any NSAID drug like Ibuprofen to relieve inflammation and apply ice twice a day at affected area to relieve swelling. It will subside in a week.

Hope that clears your doubt. If you have more questions you can ask again in follow up. If you are satisfied with conversation then please review.

Thanks

Hello again

If fever occurs then you can take Paracetamol tablets only to control temperature. It good there is no pain, the little swelling will go in some time. Apply cold compresses for edema and swelling.
