Pain in the penis can occur in any area of the organ – the base, shaft, head, or foreskin. There are a wide variety of conditions and factors that can cause penile pain, such as:
- Balanitis (infection of the foreskin and head of the penis)
- Penile cancer
- Peyronie’s disease
- Priapism (condition that causes an abnormally prolonged, painful erection)
- Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
When experiencing penile pain, a male may also experience an itching, burning, or throbbing sensation along any area of the penis. The urologic specialists at the University of Miami Health System have years of experience in diagnosing and treating the wide range of possible causes of penile pain.
