I recently got a pump, still practicing with it. A couple of days ago I guess I broke a cardnal rule. I had an erection and applied the constriction ring. After a few minutes the erection was getting soft. So I pumped it up again and used the ring again. Then I developed a puffed up area like a welt. I imediatly removed the ring. The swelling went down. Now there is some brusing...wich I understand, but there ia also a small lump where the swelling was. Do I just need to relax and leave the poor guy alone for a week or so and let it heal just like any other brusing, or should I get this checked out? I will be 6 years Cancer free May 5th this year.
