About 6 months ago I noticed that my Vein in my Penis has gotten much bigger, Like 2x its normal size.
It doesnt hurt but is alarming..I use a laptop for work about 6 hours a day....Could this be a reason?
Or is this nothing to worry about.
Thanks for writing in. Bulge in the vein that runs along the shaft of the penis is absolutely normal and mostly visible when erect or after orgasm. But if you have any other symptoms like pain, erectile dysfunction etc, then you need to see a urologist for work up for any injury or thrombosis of the penile vein.
Thanks for writing in. Bulge in penile vein when erect without pain are considered normal.
If it was a clogged vein, then it could have caused a lot of pain.
If this still bothers you, then you should see a urologist for further examination and work up.
