Unclear, more info: Large, prominent veins of the penis are not abnormal. Maybe you have penile sclerosing lymphangitis, which causes a firm cord. The cause isn't known, but probably not masturbation. However, if you mean your penis curves when erect, that's a different and more serious problem, probably not caused by a vein or PSL. Surgery may be necessary. Discuss further w/ urologist or get 2nd opinion. ...Read more

I'm concerned that you "used to" bring yourself to orgasm and that you're trying not to do so, perhaps from misguided fear. Talk with your physician or a sensible grown man, maybe Dad ...Read more
