Urology/pain in penis


I have been having discomfort and some pain upon erection. There has been a feeling of constricture near the base on the top side. There is also some curvature, but I don't know how abnormal it is. Recently I had a urology exam where the doctor squeezed my flaccid penis hard and I felt a sudden increase in pain.  Since then my penis has been sore even while flaccid.  Today I went for a second opinion, told the doctor about the first experience, and he proceeded to do the same test, applying pressure to the tender areas even though I told him it hurt.  Now I'm even more sore and not sure what to do. There is also more pain upon ejaculation. I don't have anything detectable on exam that would indicate peyronies, like a nodule, but the pain is far worse than was prior to the examinations.


It is extremely unlikely that the examinations caused any significant damage.  Peyronie's disease is by far the most likely cause of your symptoms.  I can only suggest an examination by a urologist at a tertiary care university center where they can give you some better answers.
