Raised Vein / cartilage on Penis

Hi, I am a sexually active 29 year old male. Recently I noticed a raised vein type bump or cartlidge on the left/bottom side of my penis, roughly 1/2 inch long. I am really concerned about it and it is causing a great deal of anxiety and stress in my life. Do you know what it could be or related conditions to this? It is underneath the skin and at the very end feels like a less than BB sized bump connected to the cartilage itself. It is towards the upper portion of my shaft and can be felt when erect or flaccid. Should I be worried about this? I am going to get it checked by a doc but the problem is I will not be available to be examined for another month. Thanks

Hello and thanks for contacting MSH. I think in this case it would be wrong of us to guess or speculate what this could be. How long have you noticed it? Have you injured your penis at all? Is it painful day to day, or during sex? I think you are doing the right thing to see your Doctor, but I don't understand why it will take another month, in this case I would try and see someone sooner if at all possible. Sorry we couldn't help you further in this instance.

Hi Matt, thanks for the response. It has been there for about 6-7 weeks. No pain associated, I mean zero whatsoever. The only reason I noticed it is because I know 'down there' like the back of my hand. I am currently out of reach of any doctor for another 2 weeks due to travel. I was just hoping someone with a similar experience could shed some light. So no pain, no discomfort, no additional symptoms, it hasn't grown in size, actually it reduces slightly with ibuprofen, elevation wise, not in length (well I think, I've freaked myself out a little I'm afraid).



I was just curious if there is any associated infection / disease with said symptoms, I understand it is nearly impossible and I'm not looking for a resolution but more some insight while I wait for my doc visit.



Thanks again.

D

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

The problem with a Q&A is that its not a walk in clinic that we can actually see for ourselfs, not that we do that anyway, so its hard to get across in words, but most times we can offer our advice, but odd occasions we can't for many reasons, and I think this really is one of them. The fact there is no pain, does rule out a few things I thought it could of been, but it would still be wrong to guess what it could be, and the doctors is deff they way forward. If you don't mind, would you be happy to come back to the Q&A and let us know what they think it is when you see your doc? Sorry again

We were just wondering if you found out what the problem was when you saw you doctor in the end?
