I broke a blood vessel in my penis (dorsal vein/artery) which left a small bruise. The vein appears to have healed but has become harder than I remember it and is harder than the other veins. I'm not a expert but I think it might have clotted and now I have thrombosis because it's been like this for a week now.
Everything seems to be working ok but I've been worried about it and need to know if this requires medical attention...I know it probably cannot be properly diagnosed without a doctor seeing me but I prefer not having anyone examine my penis unless absolutely necessary. I've read that minor broken blood vessels heal in 2-3 weeks but I'm concerned about the hardness of the vein, Is this a serious issue that I need to see a doctor about?
