I have a raised ring that looks like a vein that goes around the circumference of my penis, right underneath the head. Is this something serious?

Not serious...: If this is a "firm" ring/cord like area behind the head of the penis we usually diagnose as sclerosing lymphanigits which is a thrombosed lymphatic tissue. It is benign and often follows vigorous sexual activity. Antiinflammatory medications may be useful if there's discomfort but it usually resolves spontaneously within weeks to months. ...Read more
