Is there a varicose vein penis treatment?

Varicose Vein Surgery . 8 answers . 1 year ago

I am 21 years old and recently I have developed a varicose vein on my penis. The vein gives me slight discomfort. I am not sexually active. How can I fix this vein? Is there any medication or procedure which can fix it? I don't like the look of the vein.

Most likely this is more of an appearance issue. It rarely causes symptoms of pain . It is most likely the vein on top (the dorsal penile vein) This vein is sometimes ligated in men with erection problems. I would suggest seeing a urologist.

You may have a prominent vein on your penis but it is not likely to be an abnormal varicose vein. This means it won't cause problems or interfere with sexual relations. If you really dislike it, your best bet for treatment would be with a urologist.

I recommend that you see a urologist, a specialist dealing with the male urogenital area. It may be a normal vein in terms of circulation or not.

It would be recommended to talk to a urologist about that vein. After you have an appointment with a urologist, he/she would recommend an ultrasound to find out if the vein has reflux or is somehow problematic. After your initial appointment and ultrasound you would be able to find out whether treatment would be necessary.

There are some veins on the penis that should not be treated; others can be destroyed. I prefer to use a laser because it limits the area that is to be treated and does not allow the sclerotherapy solution to disturb undesired vein branches. Also, the vein that bothers you may have been caused by some other problem. You should be evaluated by a vein specialist before considering treatment.

Sclerotherapy has been shown to be quite effective with conditions of this sort. I would commend you to a vascular surgeon for a consultation and, if appropriate, treatment.

Yes there are treatment options. Injecting medication into the
enlarged vein to make it shrink or completely go away. Pending the size of
the vein, it may need more than one session of sclerotherapy.
I want to also say that veins that are already enlarged, usually don't go
away without treatment. Your discomfort may increase and you are very
young. As you become sexual active, that could cause you more discomfort.

It is difficult to answer this question without seeing the location of the vein. If the vein is one of the dorsal penile veins, then treating this would be problematic. If, in fact, the vein is an accessory penile vein then it can probably be treated either by localized microphlebectomy or sclerotherapy. Most importantly, the vein must not be related to the erection process.
