Hello doctor,

The last you gave me an answer for my query but somehow I could not send you pictures and I am sorry for that. I have a vein on the left side of my penis which is totally visible. It is not a painful one but its totally visible even in a flaccid state also. I need to correct it before marriage. Please help me. I am sending pictures for your reference.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

After looking at the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity) of the flaccid and partially erect penis, the loop of the vein seen is perfect for a normal appearance. Do you think a featureless smooth cylinder like penis will not be liked by your partner? I am sure this appearance will be perfectly accepted by your partner and liked. A muscular man has prominent veins on the forearms and arms. Likewise, prominent painless vein on the penis is not a disease. If you are able to masturbate normally, you will have normal sex.
