Damaged Vein(s) Left Side Of Penis Affecting Erection.

When I was younger, about 11 or 12, I moved my penis around to the right to "check on" everything that was occuring (or being to occur at that age) and as a result my penis is now permanently curved to the right. On top of that, when I was a bit younger (15, 16 and maybe 17) I used to half heartedly tap my fingers along the left side of the penis in a superficial attempt to straighten it but instead of correcting the curve it has made the vein(s) on the left side of the penis feel 'loose' or perhaps 'damaged' so that when I attempt an erection it is never attained at a 100% level because I feel like the blood can't move properly through the vein(s) on the left side of the penis to properly strengthen it up in the way the right side is able to.

I am seeing a urologist in a couple of months (public waiting list is a while) and on top of the fact they have to remove my acquired undescended left testicle (which I suspect is causing tightness in the lower left side of my back as well as left side of head and forehead) do you think the urologist will also, within the operation, be able to straighten the penis as well as correcting the "damaged" vein(s) along the left side of my penis so that I would be able to have a completely normal erection unhindered?

Thanks for your time.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Left Side Of Penis Affecting Erection.

So anyone with any suggestions or ideas or do you think this is a situation that should be able to be resolved by a urologist?

Thanks so much.

Thanks for your response.

Though, does it sound like something a urologist should be able to properly resolve?

Thanks!

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Left Side Of Penis Affecting Erection.

I don't know about the vein damage. He or she will be better able to tell you, though I honestly can't see how tapping would damage you.
The curve is typical. Men typically don't see it, because they don't go around showing each other their erections. If you have two body parts, one is larger.
This is true for your lungs, kidneys, etc. There are two columns which hold the blood, to give you an erection. One is a little longer, which is causing the bend.
This is the way most men are. The doctor will likely be telling you that you are normal. If he or she finds something abnormal, like Peyronie's disease is causing it, there are treatments which work, especially at a young age, and caught soon. Best of luck to you with it.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Left Side Of Penis Affecting Erection.

You did not damage your penis by moving it. A curve in the penis is very normal and many men have it. My boyfriend's penis curves to the left. It doesn't affect sex at all. You have to have direct trauma, like falling and landing with a fence between your legs to actually damage a penis.

Furthermore, the vein on your penis sounds normal. The skin around the penis is loose and slides around over the erect penis. It is normal for the visible veins to slide around with the skin. These veins have nothing to do with attaining erection. They are superficial veins that drain blood from the skin of the penis. The arteries that supply blood to cause an erection are deeper in your penis and you cannot see them. Is the only reason you think you are not getting full erections is that your penis curves to one side?

Obviously, you should keep your appointment with the urologist since he can actually look at your penis, but from what you've said, it sounds like there is nothing abnormal about your penis and nothing that needs fixing.

Thanks for you help.

When I was young (11 or 12) I used to purposefully curve my penis around to the right to look at the other side of it because of the "feelings" I was having at that age that I wanted to "check out". Thus, the penis ended up remaining curved slightly to the right and because I turned it around like this my left testicle withdrew into my abdomen (all things I need addressed at the urologist and I also think the testicle withdrawing how and when it did has caused 'strain' and 'tightness' along the lower left side of my back which also effects the left side of my head and forehead).

The vein(s) on the left side feel like they are "mushed" or "jagged" because I used to half heartedly tap the left side in a superficial attempt to straighten the penis. I do feel like, to a certain extent - though not considerable, that the vein(s) on the left side hinder a proper erection.

Finally, because the penis has been curved to the right (from its base essentially) when it is erect it curves to the right so thats something I would like the urologist to amend as well.

Thanks.

P.S. I really should have addressed all this with a urologist several years ago (both because of the urological problems and what I believe to be the associated lower left back and left head tightness) but I never thought to connect the two and also never felt that comfortable with having to address this with other people (a urologist included!).
