Wierd to ask but...

Wierd to ask but looking for answer about something I just found with my penis. A vein running down the side and into my mid section is sore and when erect actually moves left or right when it's touched. Haven't seen a single thing online so far about it or anyone with the same symptoms.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a urologist about the soreness? IHow long have you been dealing with this?

Just found it in the last few minutes. No issues all day then all of a sudden its sore and doing this moving which is wierd.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not sure. Never come across anything like this

This is known as Phlebitis which means inflammation of the vein.

This usually happens as a response to trauma or sometimes can just occur spontaneously with no explanation.

Trauma can happen during a vigorous sexual encounter or masturbation.

You should start with an anti-inflammatory medication like Tylenol or Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day.

Massage the area with Motrin gel thrice a day and avoid sexual intercourse or masturbation for 5 to 7 days.

If this seems to be getting worse or if you think the erection is not straight and the penis appears bent to one side then you will need to see your doctor for an evaluation.

the soreness at the base along the body is usual right? I can feel it a little bit in my abdomen just above the penis. Still the same vein.

It can happen with phlebitis. Just keep an eye on this and start on the above treatment regimen. If you think it is not calming down within the next 48 hours, then see your doctor. Or if it appears to get worse within the next 24 hours, see your doctor.

Hope this helps.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.

Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
