thrombosed lymphatic
hey doctor,

i noticed a swelling on the lower left side of my penis this past May. i saw a urologist who suggested that i wait 1-2 weeks and soak in a hot tub because he said i had a thrombosed lymphatic vessel. i found it hard to practice abstinence, and although the swelling went down, it did not go away completely. it is uncomfortable but not painful. its been seven months and out of concern i have been waiting 5 weeks without having sex. it still has not healed completely. i also noticed i urinate slightly to the left. i figured this was related to the swelling. is this unusual? is there anything i can do to speed up the healing process? its very hard to abstain from sex. how long shoud it take to heal? thanks for your time.

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
We have related discussions on the forum which you can read. The swelling can be anything from a thrombosed vein or lymphatic vessel, a cyst, an abscess, a lipoma, a neurofibroma or even STD. Get a STD panel done. If this is negative then you need not abstain. However if this is positive, you’ll need to get proper treatment.

You need a comprehensive investigation taking all these points in consideration. Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself investigated accordingly. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
