I'm 19 and have been experiencing slight curvature of my penis to the left when fully erect even when it is flaccid. After masturbation, I realise a lump on the side of my penis, closer to the base. When completely flaccid after masturbation, this lump is pronounced to the size of a small coin and brings me concerns.

I have been worried about this condition and thus decided to take action about 5 months ago. The GP checked for scarring and found absolutely nothing and told me it may be damaged vein or something rather and just to give it time. He also got me to take an Ultrasound of an area just to be sure. From the scans, my penis seemed to have no scar tissues below the surface and that it was identical in structure to the right side. The doc ruled out that it was thrombosis and time will heal it.

It has been 5 months and i'm still getting this lump on the side of my penis with a slight curvature.

What could it be? Does masturbation say twice a week worsen the condition or does not have any effect?

I have at times applied topical cream such as Hirudoid but it's still there.

  • I believe I have a thrombosis as caused by sex, however i think the original poster may have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peyronie's_diseaseConsidering is specifically mentioned both of the above mentioned symptoms. I'm posting this here to point any future searchers in that direction.i'm just a guy googling around trying to find out what the small lump on my penis is however, definitely not a doctor.

  • While I agree that the top-poster may have Peyronie's disease by the description, there are two other uncommon possibilities that can be mis-diagnosed as a simple thrombosis. One being Hoffman's disease http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1045448/(sclerosing lymphangitis), which is a condition similar to thrombosis but occurs in the lymphatic system. The other is Mondor's disease. None are actually diseases that can be spread or caught, but rather are either genetic disorders (inherited) or caused by trauma to the penis.I'm also not a doctor, just someone who recently went through an ordeal to be diagnosed with one of the above. Hope that helps people stumbling on this. :)
