Are penis disorders painful?

Some penis disorders may be painful, depending on the specific disorder and its causes and symptoms. Many disorders that affect the skin of the penis may be painful due to swelling or inflammation. This is especially true of disorders like phimosis and paraphimosis that cause tightening of the foreskin. Penis disorders that cause sores or growths may also be painful. Sometimes, penis disorders may cause pain during certain activities, such as urination or sexual intercourse. If you're experiencing genital pain for any reason, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor.
