I am a 29 yr old with a circumcised penis, I have never had an std and am quite particular about partners. I have pretty much ruled out the possibility of an std, and have no common symptoms related to any std.

I have noticed in the past few months a few protruding (1\2 to an inch in length) veins? or vein like obtrusions under the head of my penis, wrapping around from front to back. At first I thought they were newly developed veins (I'm assuming that veins move and newly develop in the penis?) - but after intercourse recently, they swelled up and looked almost full of fluid. This has never happened before, and the intercourse was not extremely long or intense. Thankfully they decreased after a few days of no disruption, but they are more noticeable than before. They feel almost like veins, but have no color, and are cloudy. They move like veins when touched but no vein color is apparent.

I am scared they are not veins, and instead something much more serious. I would appreciate any input.

They do not hurt, but are sensitive to the touch.

Have I just developed new veins in my penis or do I have something to be concerned about?

  • I have the same exact problem on my penis just below the head. I was scared to so i went to the doctors on 10-13-09 and had them checked out. I just came out and told him that i have been masturbating more than normal, plus the last two times that i have jacked-off i stroked it very fast very hard. He told me that i probably traumatized it, he gave me an antibiotic to take for ten days and to lay of the masturbating and if it does not go away in ten days to comeback. i am sure the doc know that a guy uses hand lotion to *******f with and that maybe i some how got some inside of my penis. i hope this is it, if it is I will be a lot mor gentle with my penis. for your info: mine doesn't hurt in anyway, if i touch it or i am peeing or when i come, but it does scare me, I sure would hate to lose it.

  • I'd also get your blood sugar and cholesterol checked.
