4 months ago I vigorously masturbated for an hour and caused upper penis shaft swelling. Subsided and now have many new penis veins. Is this a concern?

These may gradually regress with time depending on degree/frequency of masturbation going forward. Regardless, the presence of these prominent veins do not pose any threat to your health. ...Read more
