    Small hard sediment like lump in the vein of my penis

    Hi There.

    About 3-4 days ago I noticed a small lump in the vein about a 1 cm below the head of my penis (on the shaft). I was looking at one of the other discussion but I'm not quiet sure if its the same thing I have.

    The lump looks a bit like its a small clog in the vein, (not the large vein going through the middle but a smaller one that connects to it). It is hard/solid to the touch and moves around slightly with the vein when manipulated. There is no pain to it and the only time it is irritating (not very) is when I'm not doing anything and start thinking about it. Does anyone know what this may be, and what kind of treatments there are?

    Cheers

    It sounds like a varicose vein. If so, there really aren't any treatments. It may or may not be a medical concern. If the lump is hard, it's something else. You will need to see a urologist to make an actual inspection or diagnosis.
