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
Causes for prominent veins? Over the past few days I've noticed my veins are showing more and more of them are visible everywhere above my pelvis.
Veins showing: Veins are closer to your skin surface than arteries are. Maybe like like most young healthy women you are exercising and trying to keep your wt down. In doing that you may be burning some of your subcutaneous fat and so your veins become more prominent. Just a thought. See a dermatologist. ...Read more
Usually not.: Although a pelvic or abdominal tumor can lead to an increase in pelvic veins seen on the skin, there are more frequent causes such as malfunctioning (refluxing) valves in the saphenous system or even in the ovarian veins (pelvic congestion syndrome).A ct of the abdomen and pelvis as well as a leg venous ultrasound will help to make the diagnosis. See a vein specialist. ...Read more

Vascular problems: You'll be denying your providers and yourself some possibly important information regarding how to treat your vascular problem.

Consider it practice for Tx decisions. I hope it goes well - be strong! ...Read more
I feel pain in my pelvis area pre & port urination. Sometimes my right testis vein swells& epididymis tender&swells. Had e.coli but now cleared no UTI?
Have calcified vein in pelvis. Radiologist report says unidentified ideology. (Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT?
Not sure.: Sometimes a phlebolith can't be differentiated from a distal ureter stone on xray, and a CT is done to make the distinction. Perhaps the calcified vein is a larger vein than the small veins associated with phleboliths, and further evaluation is needed. But I can't be sure based on limited info. Try discussing the need for a ct with your doc. ...Read more

Cannot get a erection when I pull my foreskin behind the glans and it hurts when I start to have a boner?
Depends on details: If a guy can get an erection with the foreskin covering the glans, he can get an erection with the foreskin pulled back behind the glans. If he is new to having erections with the skin pulled back, then parts of the foreskin and the frenulum (the piece at the bottom of the glans) may still be tight and may hurt during an erection (but shouldn't hurt anymore after 10-20 erections of good duration). ...Read more
