What's the name and purpose of the large prominent vein on the top of my penis that seems to originate from the pelvis?

What's the name and purpose of the large prominent vein on the top of my penis that seems to originate from the pelvis?

Here are some...: Most likely, what you see are dorsal veins. Known to us, veins of any organs tend to widely vary in number, course, and distribution as compared to the arteries to any organs. So, if asymptomatic, compressible, and variable at erection and detumescence, leave them alone because what you see is your personal unique anatomical variation. Of course, if still in doubt, have someone take a look. Best.. ...Read more

Can a lump on the bottom of the penis shaft be potentially testicular cancer?

Can a lump on the bottom of the penis shaft be potentially testicular cancer?

Yes: However this can be the cause but where else have you had your penis? If you are promiscuous, it could actually be a urethritis that could cause this as of an infectious origin. See your doc or urologist to be see. Need to have a urine done as well. Must also rule out any STDs. ...Read more

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

Here are some...: Glad the concerned spots are in eipididymides, commonly seen, and benign - not cancer. The surest way to handle them is do nothing if not incurring unbearable mental and physical pain and anguish because surgical removal leaves the affected area with a scar and potentially affecting sperm transportation leading to infertility.
