Veins and such
I learned something the other day that may be useful to some of you.
I was concerned about a vein that appears only when I begin to become erect and lasts for the duration of an erection. It branches left from the main dorsal one and runs about 2.5 inches in length. It becomes so hard that it cannot be depressed; very rubbery. My worry was about the “thrombosed vein” threads we read here and so I asked my urologist to have a look during a regular check up.
He explained this: In some cases - often when a penis has a heavy and visually apparent vascular system - one vein or artery may appear to go haywire on its own. As erection occurs, it fills with blood to the point where it does feel rubbery and highly distended. If it doesn’t hurt and there is no evidence of a clot (none in my case), I shouldn’t worry about it. He said also that these things tend to be “migratory” in the sense that the one I have now may recede over time and that another branch from the dorsal may do the same thing in the future, maybe on the other side of the shaft.
Eased my mind.
