The dorsal vein on my penis appears much larger and I am noticing transient groin discomfort. I am a 22 year old male. What could this be?

The dorsal vein on my penis appears much larger and I am noticing transient groin discomfort. I am a 22 year old male. What could this be?

Dorsal penile vein: If you are sexually quite active, it is normal for your dorsal penile vein to enlarge since sex involves increasing blood flow to the penis, holding it for a while (erection), and then letting it flow out through the veins. The transient groin discomfort could well be due to venous congestion or engorgement, somewhat analogous to the "blue ball" syndrome. It is benign and will resolve. ...Read more

I have superficial veins popping up on the dorsal part of my penis and they're really dark, I'm a 1st year medical student and idontknow what that is?

Answered yet?: I remembered this was answered. Most likely, it's a branch of penile dorsal vein, which has its own normal variation in its diameter, number, and distribution. But I wondered that "popping up" meant - recently occurring. The easiest thing to do is to ask one of your clinically related attending (since you're a medical student) to take a look at and palpate it so this riddle could be solved. Best.. ...Read more

Pain in groin on right side above the penis root. Pressed slightly to check and feels like some swollen veins at the painful spot.20 yo male. Cancer?

Probably not: The most common cause for pain in the inguinal region is the development of a hernia. Not a likely spot for a tumor. See your physician and get it checked out. ...Read more

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

Could I get help the dorsal vein on my penis is swollen?

Probably not need...: The visibility and diameter of penile dorsal veins highly vary but carry no clinical significance as long as you're well and sound in erection for coitus. So, usually, no intervention is required, and not worth the trouble. Of course, overindulgence and obsession in every aspect of life will negatively impact desirable healthy living, and sex is no exception. ...Read more

What to do about the dorsal vein on my penis is swollen?

May be normal: If the vein collapses when pushed on, is not tender, and there is no surrounding redness or increased warmth, then it can indicate overall hydration status, but is not likely a problem. If any of the above are present, then you should see your Dr or Urologist for evaluation. ...Read more

What causes thrombosis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis? (The main prominent penis vein)

Blocking blood flow: Use of "cock rings", cords, or other types of devices that block the flow of blood through the vein for a prolonged time is the most probable cause. There are also blood clotting disorders such as anti cardiolipin antibodies that iincrease the risk of clotting. Inflammation from an infection can also cause clotting/thrombosis. ...Read more

If the penile dorsal or super fiscal vein became damaged, would penis become permanently retracted? What r other symptoms?

Usually minor issue: It sounds to me from your description that you have soreness to the dorsal vein of the penis for trauma. Usually this is a self limited issue and will resolve in time. Can try antiinflammatories like ibuprofen and heat sometimes that helps resolve the issue. This should not result in a retracted penis. Other symptoms other than soreness would be firmness felt along the vein ...Read more

Here are some...: If the thrombosis of superficial vein of the penis as defined occurred solitarily, erectile function should not be affected, but not saying ED will never happen in the future because life is a constantly moving, changing, evolving event to conform the reality that life is a constantly changing adjusting dynamic process of struggle to cope with reality, certainty, & uncertainty of daily living. ...Read more

Many possibilities: Penile masses can vary in etiology from cysts, fibrous plaques, malignancies, superficial thrombophlebitis, and more. An ultrasound in addition to an examination by a urologist could elucidate the condition further. The article describes Mondor's Disease, a case of superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis

Does a thrombosed on the superficial dorsal vein of penis effect erections or leak of the penis? Every feels ok just a clot on the supericial dorsal vein I think? Doctor said it just takes time. Its being over three months.

Sclerosing lymphangi: This sounds like a condition called sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis. (Google it -- you can find photos to compare with your situation.) It's harmless and your doctor is right: it will clear up, but takes time. It doesn't typically cause erectile problems, urine leaking, or other symptoms. ...Read more

Too much sex: Perhaps you need to give your body a day or two break. I am known here on health tap for telling men that masturbation is normal and common and without any health risks. But, too much can be too much. Sometimes our skin and organs need some time to recover so they can function properly. ...Read more

I am a 22 year old male I am uncircumcised... During intercourse I noticed my penis was bleeding...what wouldcause this?

Torn tissue: The mechanics of sex will stretch and twist tissue. Sometimes this will produce small tears in the frenum, or attachment of the foreskin. That should be visible to close examination (mirror might help). If this comes out of your pee hole, it is unexpected and should be evaluated by a urologist. ...Read more

I'm 22 year old male. Took Accutane aged 20 for period of 6 months. Did it stunt my height (closure of bone plates) and stunt my penis growth?

Unrelated: Linear growth and penile growth are more or less finished by the age of 17 in most males & slowed significantly in others. If you went into puberty about the same time as your friends, it is unlikely that you would grow after 19. ...Read more

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Probably normal: Every male has "small white bumps" on the penile skin, normal sebaceous glands and hair follicles. If you are sure this is new and/or abnormal, see your doctor or a dermatologist. In the meantime, this description doesn't sound at all like genital warts. And common skin warts don't get transmitted to the genital area, so that's really not something to be concerned about. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi I'm a 30 year old male and my penis keeps oozing a clear and sticky substance. I have no groin pain or tesicale pain.?

Get checked: A penile discharge often indicates an infection. If you have been having unprotected sex it could be due to a sexually transmitted disease. If not, there are other infections that can do this. So get checked out. Avoid intercourse until seen, either way. Other causes are possible as well, but you need to see a doc to find out. If you have fever, vomiting, or increased pain, get seen at ER. ...Read more
