Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 23-years-old. From one week, I noticed a small twisted nerve on my penis. It is not irritating, not causing pain or burning. But it is looking odd. Actually, I slept on my stomach the previous night. From the next day, I noticed this. I do not masturbate also. Please advice me on this.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

If possible, send me images so that I can see and suggest you properly. I hope this helps you. Kindly follow up with the images.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

It is looking normal sometimes and odd sometimes. It is worrying me a lot. I do not have any problem because of it but just weird by its image. Please help.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have seen the images sent by you (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is absolutely normal. They are normal veins on the penis as we have veins on other parts of the body like on hand. Nothing to worry at all. You are absolutely fine. And, you will not have any problem in the future.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
