Mid shaft ribbed tunica bump

Move to Injuries - Mid shaft ribbed tunica bump

No pain, no discomfort, erection is fine, but sometimes it looks like a beat up dick in both flaccid and partly erect, when my dick is “hard flaccid”. (But I´ve been more spongy and fluffy since I´ve picked up PE)

Like a clock, top of dick: 12, bottom: 6
I have a mid shaft bump, it is shaped as a minor arc of the circumference, from 1 to 5 . It is under the skin.
Fully erect you can barley see it (could even be slightly smaller girth at that point). I have a ribbed feeling on both sides when erect(great feeling), two little bigger ribs on both sides. But this one on the right side is bigger and always there even flaccid.

I did some slight PE 10 years ago, non consistent, just tried the stretch + jelq.
And one day I started to notice this bump on my shaft. I quit PE and didn´t think that much more about it, but it has stayed that way for 10 years. (Could have been injured in an other way to, but I doubt it)

I also liked the feeling to constant kegel during masturbation when I was younger, so in a way you could say I´ve had some “ballooning practice” and an alright BC muscle.

I´m not that concerned, I post more as of interest if anyone knows what might have caused it? Stretch or jelq? Forgotten or to little warm up?(I don´t remember)
Or read/seen any similar injury?
And I might be able to help some other kid who is nervous.

Internal chamber rupture of some kind of the corpora cavernosa?
Or an elasticity tear of the tunica albuginea?

It has not increased in size after two months of easy PE 2-3 days a week, starting to see gains now as I increase intensity.
I guess this only can be fixed with surgery and I won’t´go down that road, scary.

Appending four pics (I hope it is alright to have them here instead of in the Pics forum?)
1. Flaccid pretty normal
2. Flaccid after warm up
3. ||
4. Erect (a tad camera shy)

(My flaccid is <10cm, <4 inches)

It’s impossible to say what it is from a photo, but if you had damaged one of the corpora badly you would probably have a curve to that side where scar tissue had contracted.

It does not detract from your penis, and as long as it remains unchanged and does not hurt, don’t worry about it. If it changes in any negative way, consult a doctor. As it hasn’t changed for 10 years, it is unlikely to now.


Heat makes the difference between gaining quickly or slowly for some guys, or between gaining slowly instead of not at all for others. And the ideal penis size is 7.6" BPEL x 5.6" Mid Girth.

Thank you firegoat for taking the time to read and reply.

Even if I was not that concerned your words calmed my mind :)

Just posting pics of your dick is nervous ;)

I’d be curious to hear any more responses on this subject, as I have that myself (since before PEing).

That’s a huge glans.

To get back on topic, I have the same thing. I didn’t have it pre-PE though. I was clamping once and I left the clamp on too long and it blew out a vein maybe? I freaked out and heated/massaged it for an hour and it went down a bit. It got smaller over the next couple of days, but even now, it will often be easily visible when flaccid. It’s especially visible after ejaculation when my boner subsides.

Thanks for checking in and adding info RandomGiant, it helps just to know that we are more with the same issue.
Do you think the topic is good and describing?
Perhaps change it to: Mid shaft “ribbed” tunica/CC bump ?

I like to see thing in a positive way: Ribbed for her pleasure :)

I do not think it is a vein. I thinking it might be a part of the CC that is broken, perhaps a section of smooth muscle that just won´t contract?

When fully erect my CC´s have more of these ribbed parts along the whole shaft, ribbed feeling.
And I also notice it most after ejaculation when my boner subsides. Or warming up.
Never any pain.

I have since starting this thread upped the intensity of my stretches. My bump is still the same.
Even though it might be most affected with tough girt work. I try to jelq at a lower erection now, but not because of the old bump.

OT: Regarding my glans, thanks :)
I think the camera angle and maximum kegel fools you a bit.
I will measure and take pictures in 2 weeks, at least that is the plan. (I wish my glans and CS was harder without kegel)

I can assure you that my glans is usually softer than yours is! There’s a reason why they aren’t hard though, so we can ejaculate easier. It makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint :) .

RandomGiant, thanks, yes I understand that better now.

I have thought about my “mid shaft tunica bump” from time to time, starting to think that it is a deep vein merging with my deep dorsal vein, kind of looks that way after a session with lube on, I can partly see through the skin.
Not sure though, but not that worried about it.
Could partly do that vein trick with two fingers, then lift one and the blood fills the vein up again, but not that clear of a proof.

Whats your length and girth today?


Start (october 2010) : BPEL 18,5 cm ; EL 17,5 cm ; MSEG 13,75 cm ,BEG 14,25 cm ;FL 12 cm ; FG 10,75 cm ; BPFSL 18,5 cm

3 months later ( January 2011) : BPEL 19 cm ; EL 18 cm ; MSEG 14 cm ; BEG 14,5 cm FL (hard to say if it grows due to size shifting of the soft state.. The same as before or bigger!) ; FG 11 cm ; BPFSL 19 cm***all hard sizes taken @ my hardest and doing a kegel***Goal: cementing a round 18 x 14 hard coupled with a good EQ.

Have not thought abot this for a long time, just gonna add just like RandomGiant said: “It’s especially visible after ejaculation when my boner subsides.”
Exactly the same thing for me.
Think it is an enlarged deeper vein.

Smegma: have not measured in along time, check out my progress thread, think I am around 19.5 cm BPEL and 15 EG today.

Are you sure that “bump” has something to do with tunica?? Couldn’t it be simply a fluid retention in a lymph vessel for example?

I am not sure.

Not likely the tunica as I mentioned in a few posts, most likely a vein or maybee some lymp vessel to like you say

I am 100% sure that it’s not the tunica as you penis is straight and you have no pain etc.. Also this bump totally fades when you are erect and this is the way lymph vessels behave.

I will post other thoughts I have about this question in another thread, but here´s my experience related to the topic of this thread.

When I was about 12 and masturbation was still something new, I overdid it and one side of my penis got swollen, like a bubble that encircled one of the sides, and it felt very tender to touch. I kept doing it (with bad technique, of course) but after the pain became too strong, I let it rest for some days and the swelling went down, but my penis never felt the same.

After that, I got a slight curve on the region where the swelling happened and some rotation at the base, so, looking at it from the front, it´s a little weird. Another thing that is strange, in my case, is that the spot where I had the swelling became harder, so it´s easier to bend my penis to one side (in the direction of the curve) than to the other, and when I try to bend it to the harder side, I feel some discomfort, as if it´s about to break.

This seems to be a case of penile “ribbing”, you say you have a few more faint ones as well making this almost identical to every other case I have seen described. I have this too, and initially I freaked and thought I would need a urologist etc. But I have literally seen dozens upon dozens of threads of people who have this exact same “ribbing” and have had no ill effects.

There’s one guy on the peyronies forum who claims ribs are causing him ED, but I think he’s just a head case to be honest.. Ribs or no ribs his ED is likely entirely unrelated. Like I said, dozens and dozens of people have these encircling “ribs”, and continue posting to this day with no problem. I think you are right not to worry, it was hard for me not to until today, but I finally have checked my concerns about this.

So far I have read that these are expanding structures of the tunica, which makes sense as they are not plaques or uneven scars, but rather perpendicular lines more or less encircling the penis.

Here is an extreme example, where the “ribs” have appeared over the entire penis.
