A member asked:

Can varicose veins in penis cause corpus cavernosum damage and chronic erectile dysfunction?

ED: Varicose veins do not occur on the skin of the penis. They are just normal veins seen through the thinner skin of the penis. These normal veins have no association with erectile dysfunction nor corpora cavernosal blood flow.
