Harms of masturbation

Q: Can you kindly tell me what are the harms of masturbation.

A: When masturbation has been declared impermissible and a sin, then this alone is sufficient for a believer to refrain from it. A believer does not need to know the physical harms in order for him to refrain.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

الاستمناء حرام وفيه التعزير ولو مكن امرأته أو أمته من العبث بذكره فأنزل فإنه مكروه ولا شيء عليه كذا في السراج الوهاج (الفتاوى الهندية 2/170)
