It can be a penile varicose vein. However the other possibility of Mondor’s disease needs to be ruled out. It is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis. This is an inflammatory reaction to a clot within the vein. This subsequently causes blockages and dilation of the vein. It is typically painless, but can be painful. In studies, patients were noted to have thrombophlebitis after a prolonged sexual act with or without intercourse. It was described as cord-like thickening of the superficial penile veins.
Diagnosis can be confirmed by ultrasound.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Hi there, when I pluck up the courage I will bring it up with my doctor as I feel that I also need a circumcision. I don't think it is a blood clot as when I lay down, the vein is almost invisible, unless I put pressure on the vein, and then the build up behind it will make the vein inflate - I can also feel pressure inside my glans, which means that this vein is the deep dorsal vein, and I do not believe there is currently a clot involved. When I stand up the vein immediately inflates to full size, which leads me to believe the vein and the valves inside have been damaged somehow, whether through sexual activity or trauma. I have heard about deep dorsal vein embedding, which is usually a treatment for a condition known as "soft glans", and feel it may be beneficial to me if it can flatten the vein so it does not interfere with intercourse, and not have stagnant blood remain sitting in the vein for long periods.
I know I am very very late, but I have been doing some searching and this is the closest to my predicament. I am curious as to if you also have experienced hard flaccids. Also, I was curious if you have had any progress or better information concerning your situation
Hi, I don't know if you found any information but I also have a "varisoce superficial dorsal vein" and other smaller veins too.
I also suffered from hard flaccid in the last months and it went away after 2 months but now that I start exercising (walking) a little more, the hard flaccid seems to come back.
I also almost always have a feeling that I need to pee, is it your case too?
