    slight throbbing pain

    It started last night, but there is a slight throbbing pain on the left side of the tip of my penis. Right below the head of my penis. I haven't had sex in the last 6 months and there isn't any bumps or anything. Just a slight throbbing pain. What could this be? And what should I do?

    There is no pain that is normal in your penis. If you have absolutely no explanation for the sensation, you should see a doctor. Keep in mind that most GPs will know nothing about penises and that you may need a specialist.

    There is insufficient information in your description to make any guess.
