is it normal to have a big vein on my penis ?

Yes.: There are often large superficial veins under the skin of the penis. These are not a problem. But, they can get traumatized during sex or matusturbation. Sometimes a vein will temporarily get firm or hard. If it gets red or tender, see a doctor right away, as this could be phleblitis (or thrombophleblitis).

See pedi urologist: An experienced pediatric urologist, or a reconstructive urologic surgeon with plenty of experience with urethral reconstruction, are probably the best drs. To deal with this problem. We advise patients that the urinary meatus should reach the the coronal sulcus (groove at base of glans) for satisfactory fertilility. Alternative is to do nothing if functions (urination & sex) are satisfactory..
