Most commonly pain in penis occurs with erections and may or may not be occurring during sex.

Most common cause of penile pain in this situation is Peyronie’s disease which can cause pain with or without penile curvature.  Frenulum breve, a short frenulum of the penis, may also cause penile pain with erections and during sex. Short frenulum can also cause small tears and bleeding, typically on the underside of the penis.

Treatment depends on underlying cause. Learn about treatment options for Peyronie’s disease and frenuloplasty for treatment of frenulum breve.

Causes of penile pain without erections.

Pain in the penis when it is not erect is less common.  Most common causes for penile pain when there is no erection are trauma, neuropathy, and referred pain. These include:

Treatment depends on the underlying cause of pain and may involve oral medications or injections. Surgical treatment is sometimes necessary.
