Veins on the head of the penis
Good afternoon. On the bottom side of my penis I see "light, transparent" veins ( for about 2 years I thought that they are veins that go to the head of my penis) - they are about 5mm long on both sides of the bottom of the penis head. They were the same size till about this time, but now I started to see that from right side it goes more to the middle. There is no pain. I'm wondering if it's normal, or not. I didn't have sex for about a year already, but I'm masturbating quite a lot.
Here you could see the pictures:

Hi, thanks for query.

This seems to be normal. This is normal vein carrying blood and not of concern.
Depending on the state of penis flaccid or erect it can increase or decrease in size.  Just relax, you are normal.

Wishing you good health.

Hello,
These veins are normal veins of the penis and you don’t need to worry about them. Nothing is to be done. If they start enlarging (less likely) get an evaluation for varicose veins penis. The varicose vein on the penis does not require any treatment. It may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended. Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. No other treatment is required.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
