It's not an injury, it's a feature!
Last fall, after an overly energetic jelqing session, I discovered a hard string like vessel on my shaft near the glans - a couple of inches long. I’m still not sure whether to call it a lymphocele or thrombosed vein or what. I followed the advice on the forums, including using Eroset oil along with DMSO, applying heat, and no PEing for awhile. I also tried icing it down and eventually tried some light jelqing.
However, the problem never went away. It did diminish some, but when I’m erect it’s still noticeable if I look for it.
As it’s not causing any problems - no pain, no redness, no EQ difficulty - I’ve decided to live with it. Some guys buy condoms that are “ribbed for her pleasure”. I consider this an accidental DIY pleasure rib. My wife doesn’t complain about it feeling strange during oral or during sex, so I know it’s not an issue for her.
I am wondering, however, if I can expect it to slowly go away. I considered going to a urologist, but since it isn’t causing any problems I don’t see the need for any medical attention, and like many of us here, I don’t feel like having to answer any questions about how I got it, and don’t want any doctor or nurse fiddling around with my equipment.
Anyone else ever have something like this that stubbornly refused to go away?
