DVT & Varicose Veins in Penis

Is it possible to get thrombosis in penis veins that would ultimately lead up to DVT or any other blood clotting disorders? Also, are the veins in the penis considered "Varicose veins" ? What are the chances? Thanks.

Re: DVT & Varicose Veins in Penis

Veins only become varicosed when the valves stop working which leads to the blood pooling which can then lead to inflamation and pain. Just because a vein is prominant doesn't mean it is varicose or will become varicose.

You notice bodybuilders with their low body fat have very visible veins on their arms, legs.. everywhere. They're not varicose veins.

Doubt very much that penis veins could become varicose. It mainly happens in the large veins of the legs. (I've had 3 operations on leg varicose veins)
