Ridges running along sides of penis shaft..??

When my penis is flacid and I move the skin of the shaft up and down I can see some faint ridges underneath the skin (running perpendicular or side-to-side of the shaft. NOT running from the head of the penis down to the bottom of the shaft. There are a couple on the left side of the shaft and then a couple on the other side, in various locations. The can be felt by touch but aren't really hard like calcified. they are about an eighth of an inch thick and an inch long. Are these old ruptures or scarring on the spongy part of the penis. Should I be worried about this leading to periogne's or being further damaged?

it could be veins in your penis, it's most likely nothing to worry about, but you can always go to your gp if you are worried.

Sounds like normal ridges of the underlying structure, chambers in the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum.
