: Thanks for the response, lance. The bumps look kinda like rings, larger veins going down the side of my penis. They are a bit difficult to describe so I took photos in the hopes that somebody here might recognize what they were by looking at them. A past post also posted a photo so I was wondering how I can do this (the message board guidelines seem to say this is ok)? As I said, the veins are especially bizarre because there are so many of them, and they are so prominent. You always keep hearing that masturbation is perfectly healthy, but I suspect that I may have been beating it a bit too much or may possibly have bene putting too much pressure. All of these veins, with the exception of the one minor bump sprung up around three months ago. I had had no notice before. Schlerotherapy is a system in which a solution is injected into veins to make them disappeare. They are used primarily to treat the varicose veins that appear in a women's legs though they are also used on feet, chest, hands and some other body parts. The penis, though, is a pretty delicate organ, so I'm not sure if that would be something considered. A doctor urologist would seem to be the right person to go to but it's kind of embarrassing. Should I go see a regular medical doctor first? Any suggestions?
You're right, a doctor or urologist is the person to see regarding this. I wouldn't inject anything into my penis! I don't really suspect that this is from masturbation...if so, I'd be asking the same question you are, as would thousands of other men. We all "beat it" with pretty good regularity and for many years! If you're really concerned then see a doc....don't worry about the embarassment, they see penises and discuss this kinda stuff all the time....its their job!
