Hello everyone. I try to live a clean life. That seems to be important when dealing with these kinds of things because I know people think right off the bat that when you are concerned about something about your penis, you must be "Promiscuous", have sores, std's or other strange things going on with your private parts. I am very careful where my penis goes. For the past five years that has only been in my wife. I am in my early 50t's and have never had this problem before.
Here's my story. A few weeks ago I noticed something different about my penis. I check it often along with the rest of my body. Just under the rim of the head of the penis there is something like a vein about two inches long. Part of it is narrow and the other half is kind of puffy. During sex it seems to get bigger and harder. In all the reading I have done suggest it is lymphocele and that there isn't much to worry about.
I went to a Urologist and he said it wasn't lymphocele. I forgot what he called it but he thinks it was always there after I was circumcised at birth. I don't think he is correct because I always check my self, but then I am not a urologist. He did ask me if there was any discomfort during sex or any other time. At that time I said no but shortly after that visit I noticed during sex it was uncomfortable. I can't call it pain but kind of like if your socks had a crease in them while you were walking, or if there was a rubber band just under the skin there. There is a very tiny pinch when it is squeezed. I am going for a second opinion Monday but I just wanted to see what others have experienced, if you have had this excised, or what a doctor has to say. I have attached a photo of it but don't know if WD will allow it. This photo was not meant to offend in any way.
