Swollen Vein?

I'm pretty sure I have a swollen vein in my penis, right under the head like on the collar. It's like a little soft bump and it's like a dark purple. I've had it for a little while now actually, and never really thought anything of it until now. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do and how to make it go away? If I left it alone for too long, is it possible that it will never go away? Like do you have to react fast or does it go away whenever you start treating it? Because I've had it for a while.

By the way, I would like to try and do this without going to a doctor if possible because I'm only 15. Any help is much appreciated.

Any help is much appreciated.Fordyce spots: small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and which usually affect younger men. They may occur as a solitary lesion, but frequently appear in crops of 50 to 100. They are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted – which they are not! They are abnormally dilated blood vessels, covered by thickened skin. They may bleed if injured or even during intercourse. They are not infectious and their cause is unknown. Although a number of approaches have been tried, there is no simple, reliable treatment to remove them. Troublesome bleeding spots can be sealed with a device that uses a small electric current (electrocautery).Eh?Hope I could help.

  • Thanks for the help, but I don't think that is it. I read that forcyde spots are usually found in groups of 50-100. I only have 1. Please keep the suggestions coming.
