Masturbation is good for you.  It is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary for male sexual health.  It keeps your sex organs in healthy functioning condition and flushes fluids through them.  It has even been found to prevent prostate cancer.  Most men your age enjoy masturbating every day or close to it.  You ought to focus on enjoying it and not worry that it is causing problems.  See here: http://www.healthystrokes.com/promasturbation.html.
