When my penis hardens, a large somewhat kind of a vein show in the middle of the shaft. I wonder if anyone else out there has the same problem as mine. I would like to know if my penis is still normal.

It's not a problem, and is completely normal. Remember that your penis fills like a spongy balloon, and anything near to the surface like veins will protrude as they are displaced by the rigidity of your penis. If you had seen more erect penises than your own, you would recognize that quite a lot of them are veiny, not all of them, but a lot of them. There is nothing wrong with yours appearing that way.
