Big vein on penis shaft, trauma or natural?

I've had this vein for many years now, and it doesn't hurt but it looks not particularly pleasing. I've always been afraid to go to the doctor but this is giving me so much anxiety that I have to do it. But since I'd have to wait a long time to meet an urologist I thought that I could ask online if someone knows that this is. It's not painful, and when I pull back my foreskin this vein(or whatever it is)  either curls up or straighten out. It's about 5mm (0.2inches) thick  and when looking at the penis from the side it protudes visibly too. It looks more dark than in the picture, a kind of blueish color.
I have been masturbating vigorously for many years and I wonder if this has to do with it. I hope someone can calm me down because this worry consumes me :(

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have read that a lymphatic inflammation can "push" the superfical dorsal vein to prominece and therefore make it look very big and close to the skin. I still haven' been able to meet a doctor so that's why I hope that someone here might have any idea what's wrong with my penis. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry to bring this topic back but I'm still waiting for a doctors appointment (things are slow around here).
I would be eternally grateful for any ideas on what's wrong with my penis.
