I went to see my urologist regarding my thrombosed vein


I went to see my urologist regarding my thrombosed vein

I’ve had a thrombosed vein for almost 3 weeks now and it has not gone away. Today I went to my urologist and I wasted my $95 visit. I told him I had a very large vein on my penis and it’s probably a thrombosed vein. He then said, “well let’s take a look!” I dropped my drawers and he massaged the area and he said it was definietely a thrombosed vein. He then told me that the vein had died and the blood had no where else to go. The doctor mentioned that for my case it will take many months, not weeks, for it to go away because it runs all the way down to the base. I’m pretty sure it’s the main dorsal vein that I fucked up, I forgot to ask him. He also said that if it bothers you with pain then he will surgically remove it, but if it doesn’t hurt then why bother. I then asked if he could prescribe me heparin or warfarin for my vein. He said, “no need to go overboard on this, don’t worry about it. It poses no threat to you at all just take ibuprofen or aspirin.” So to all of you, I’m saving you money and time by visiting a urologist. If it physically bothers you then have your doctor remove it, but if it doesn’t then it will take a long time for it to go away.

This is the post where I initially complained about my thrombosed vein.
Clamping is causing major erection problems!

Thanks, Mike.

There may exist one here, but: I’d really like to see a pic of what one looks like. Lots of us confuse a normally large vein or artery with a thrombosed one.



You made the comment in the last post of that thread that one has to jelq for the rest of his life not to lose his gains.

Did you consider the fact that those thrombosed veins had cut off some major blood flow to your unit and was probably the cause for its reduced size?

It didn’t cut off all the major blood flow because I can still get erect. I’ve been jelqing for a couple years and everytime I take a break from jelqing I lose my gains. So what’s the point?

All your gains ?

Yes my mid girth is back down to 5.5.

Further to the mystery of what a “thrombosed vein” really is, I found this information which defines the condition as Mondor’s disease. There is a sonogram pic at this site, but that doesn’t help us in identifying it on an outside visual. Apparently there is always a clot with a thrombosis and the condition is far more rare than I had supposed.



Mondor’s is a clogged superficial dorsal vein - the big, usually visible vein on top. Thrombosed veins reported here are usually smaller ones.

A picture wouldn’t do any good for diagnostic purposes because there isn’t anything to see except for when there is localized skin swelling over the vein.

Hobby, I probably have Mondor’s disease. I’m going to try out Bromelain like what sparky says.

Penile Mondor’s disease in a 22-year-old man.

Penile Mondor’s disease (superficial thrombophlebitis of the dorsal vein of the penis) is an important clinical diagnosis that every family practitioner should be able to recognize. Although penile Mondor’s disease is rare, proper diagnosis and consequent reassurance can help to dissipate the anxiety typically experienced by patients with the disease. This article describes the symptomatology, diagnosis, and treatment of superficial thrombophlebitis of the dorsal vein of the penis.

Penile Mondors’ disease: an underestimated pathology.

OBJECTIVE: To report the aetiological, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of penile Mondor’s disease treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: During the last 3 years, 10 patients (mean age 35 years, range 20-57) were treated for superficial penile vein thrombophlebitis. The main aetiological factors were prolonged and excessive sexual intercourse, operations for inguinal hernia and deep vein thrombosis. All patients had noticed sudden and almost painless cord-like induration on the penile dorsal surface. Doppler ultrasonography was useful in both diagnosis and follow-up. Eight patients were treated with NSAIDs and platelet drugs. RESULTS: The mean interval to resolution of symptoms was 3 weeks. Two patients who did not respond to drug therapy underwent surgery (dorsal vein resection). CONCLUSION: Medical therapy and, when indicated, vein resection are successful and effective in treating penile Mondor’s disease.

Superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis (penile Mondor’s disease).

In our center between 1992 and 1994 penile Mondor’s disease (superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis) was diagnosed in 5 patients aged 20-39 years. In all patients the thromboses were noted 24-48 hours after a prolonged sexual act with or without an intercourse. the main symptom was a cord-like thickening of the superficial veins, which were painless or slightly painful. Doppler examination of the superficial dorsal vein revealed obstruction of the vessels. In 2 patients the retroglandular plexus was also involved. Patients were treated with anti-inflammatory medications (Tenoxicam or Ibuprofen). The resolution of the thrombosis occurred uneventfully within 4-6 weeks. No recurrence or erectile dysfunction was noted in any of the patients. Penile Mondor’s disease is a benign pathology of the superficial dorsal penile vein and should be taken into account in the differential diagnosis of penile pathologies.

The management of penile Mondor’s phlebitis: superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis.

Swierzewski SJ 3rd, Denil J, Ohl DA.

Department of Surgery, University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor 48109.

Superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis was diagnosed 8 times in 7 patients between 19 and 40 years old (mean age 27 years). All patients related the onset of the thrombosis to vigorous sexual intercourse. No other etiological medications, drugs or constricting devices were implicated. Three patients were treated acutely with anti-inflammatory medications, while 4 were managed expectantly. The mean interval to resolution of symptoms was 7 weeks. Followup ranged from 3 to 30 months (mean 11) at which time all patients noticed normal erectile function. Only 1 patient had recurrent thrombosis 3 months after the initial episode, again related to intercourse. We conclude that this is a benign self-limited condition. Anti-inflammatory agents are useful for acute discomfort but they do not affect the rate of resolution.

I’ve been taking 3x500mg pills of Bromelain a day,
400 mg of advil twice a day
162 mg of aspirin a day
I’ve been taking these drugs for a while now, and my vein has not settle down yet. It’s still very hard like a guitar string. I’m very desperate, I want to do anything to resolve this problem. I have no health insurance coverage to pay for surgery.

My doctor said that the vein died, and the blood has no where to go. I feel like taking a needle and sticking it in my vein and let all the blood out. Would this work? What are the risks? I have my alcohol and bandaid ready.
