HI

Veins are present to drain the blood from the penis and hence they are normal even if they are dilated.Some people have prominent veins and some have no visible veins.They are all just variations.It is a concern if it was painful which is not the case here.

So there is nothing to worry about it.

I have attacahed the pic on above thread please scroll up and have a look at red highlighted area, and this is noticeable since last 3 - 4 months, could this be some injury ?

 

Expert:  Dr. Tharun replied 1 year ago.
HI

I got the picture.It seems like a very subtle swelling which may not be very significant.

Penile injury which bulges out could be due to a tear in the inner blood chambers.But in that case the erections would be weak as the blood leaks out through this tear in this space.Also there would be pain during erections.

In absence of these symptoms , I presume that this swelling is not very significant.

I hope this helps you.
