If a blood vessel is ruptured in a penis, how does the knot

This answer was rated:

If a blood vessel is ruptured in a penis, how long does the knot stay on the shaft?   Is it suppose to hurt after the bruising is gone?

Welcome to just answer,

Extent and duration of symptoms depends on size and extent of injured vein.

Knot is formed due to accumulation of blood and is a known as haematoma.

These haematoma will slowly heal and will take few days to 2-3 weeks.

It can hurt even after bruise is gone due to compression of adjacent tissue.

Do not worry it will heal slowly.

For pain you can take Tab Ibuprofen. It is over the counter medication.

Please visit you doctor if possible a urologist. A Sonography is also recommended to know the exact status.

It has now been 2 1/2 weeks. At what point do I need to see a doctor or is it necessary? You say 2 - 3 weeks to heal. Does this mean dont have sex until I am completely recovered?
You should have visited doctor by now.

Anyways its never too late.

You should avoid sex it can cause pain.

Visit to doctor is necessary to avoid complication and know the extent of damage.

Injury can cause problem in future.
