I have suddenly noticed that there is a big vein or vein-like tube in the right side on my penis. it is under skin but it appears so clearly during the erection. I have overmasturbated for several weeks before that.
It does not hurt but it is scary to look at it. This tube has no color specific color (at least not blue). It is so prominent during the erection but it is also easy to see when it is flaccid.
Please let me what is it, and how can I get rid of it.
Thanks for writing to the forum!
It is normal to have a bulging vein on and off on the penis at various locations. They disappear as they come. If a vein persists for more than two weeks you must consult your doctor. The only point of consideration is clots in these veins. However the clots make them painful. So if there is pain then also consult your doctor. Do not fiddle with it. Leave it alone.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examination. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Thanks a lot for your help and the interesting information.
It actually lasted about 20 days until today and there is no change. I do not feel pain on penis but I feel pain inside the groin area or little bit higher (and sometimes between the right leg and the testicles). It is hard to locate the pain exactly but I know that somewher in the pelvic area. It is in the right side of the body, the same side as the vein appears on the right side of the penis. However, this pain is not severe because i do not feel it when I am running or walking or do daily activities, but I feel when I go sleep or sitting for some time. I can feel it but not that I would need pain killer. I decided earlier not to touch it until I know how this will end, but I have normal morning erection.
I consulted with a urologist and he described as varicose like the one that happens in the legs and said it will disappear by itself and it is harmless.
After I read your comments I guess there is a clot somewhere because the vein during erection is shown starting from the contact point of the penis with the groin.
Please read this message and give your opinion after this additional information.
If a picture can help in the diagnosis, I can send it if you tell me how.

Yes, varicose vein is a possibility. Only a dopplar study will confirm if there is a clot there or not. Please follow up with your doctor regarding this. It is difficult to comment beyond this on net.
