What causes swelling in the penis?

I have a swollen penis around the neck area. It would only causes pain if I pressed it which normally it wouldn t hurt at all. I don t have a problem peeing, and no unusual liquid comes from it either. It started last 2 days, when I woke up feeling chills and caught mild fever. I feel really painful in top right area of my pubic zone where I believe there s a lymph nodes. It more painful when I put a pressure on it. As for today, the pain of that area somehow reduced but it still painful if I press it. I didn t realize my penis condition until I took a shower about an hour later. I read about a possible cause of my problem may related to lymph channel inflammation which I found out earlier but it doesn t relate about the pain on the lymph node area. Please advice me what should I do. I met a non specialized doctor, and she gave me an antibiotic because she said it probably caused by an infection from my penis. Thank you very much in advance.

Hi,

You could have infection of penis.
I would advise you to do USG of penis and testis.
You may need antibiotic for 1 week.
