Does masturbating using rusty hand cause tetanus ?

I touched some rust with my hands and then after sometime, about an hour, I masturbated with the clothes on. Can I get tetanus or any disease?

Tetanus is not known to be spread this way. It is always better to wash your hands before touching anything because other infections can also spread. No need to worry. Just follow proper handwashing procedure. Tetanus only spreads by contact of wound with anything contaminated with soil or dust.
