What Is Deep Thrombosis of the Penis? (Blood Clots)

What Is Deep Thrombosis?

Thrombosis is a condition in which blood clots form in a vein. The word thrombosis means forming a blood clot. The clot itself is called a thrombus.

A blood clot is a jelly-like mass of congealed blood. Clotting is the normal way the body stops bleeding and begins healing following injury. Once the clot has done its job, the body absorbs it. Sometimes, however, blood clotting can prove harmful. These become a hazzard when a blood clot forms in a deep vein and remains there.

I think allot of guys are quick to think they have thromboses when it could be a number of different things. Thromboses in the penis is a cord-like thickening and hardening of a superficial vein(s), which result in varying degrees of pain. Basically it is a blood clot. When we do PE the vascularity of our penis changes and larger, bulging veins are a normal part of this process. Many people may think they have this condition when it is merely a change in the vascularity.

Here is an abstract I found on the subject:

Superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis (penile Mondor's disease).
International Urology & Nephrology. 28(3):387-91, 1996.
Ozkara H. Akkus E. Alici B. Akpinar H. Hattat H .
In our center between 1992 and 1994 penile Mondor's disease (superficial
dorsal penile vein thrombosis) was diagnosed in 5 patients aged 20-39
years. In all patients the thromboses were noted 24-48 hours after a
prolonged sexual act with or without an intercourse. the main symptom
was a cord-like thickening of the superficial veins, which were painless
or slightly painful. Doppler examination of the superficial dorsal vein
revealed obstruction of the vessels. In 2 patients the retroglandular
plexus was also involved. Patients were treated with anti-inflammatory
medications (Tenoxicam or Ibuprofen). The resolution of the thrombosis
occurred uneventfully within 4-6 weeks. No recurrence or erectile
dysfunction was noted in any of the patients. Penile Mondor's disease is
a benign pathology of the superficial dorsal penile vein and should be
taken into account in the differential diagnosis of penile pathologies.

The basic prescription for this condition is 82mg of aspirin daily, deep penile massage, frequent hot wraps, and avoiding sex and/or girth work.

I'm only 17, and I have developed a thrombosis on my penis, it's on the right side... It comes and goes sometime after an erection and may stay a day or two. I've never experienced any pain from it though. Usually I can just Massage it out, and feel it break away.. sometimes it's harder and I doesn't break away by a quick massage...

Thanks for enlightening me, i think i'v had it for about a week now and i'm starting to see it disperse slightly. I'm relieved now i know it's nothing serious.

Thrombosis happens due to restriction in the predominate veins of the penis. Masturbation, if rough, too tight of a grip, or uneven strokes (harder at one side than the other) then thrombosis could happen.

VIAGRA on it's own will not cause thrombosis but extended erections and sex, especially if it follows any of the types mentioned in the latter.

As mentioned in the article, time off, heat, massage any any of the other remedies in this BLOG will have you back on track in no time.

I HAVE DEVELOPED A LARGE VEIN ABOUT 1" LONG ALONE THE BASE OF THE HEAD OF MY PENIS, I DON'T KNOW IF MY CONSTANT MASTERBATION (3-5 TIMES A WEEK) OR THAT I USE A C_CK RING CONTRUBUTED TO THIS. SHOULD I SEE A UROLOGIST? WILL IT GET WORST? WILL A BLOOD CLOT TRAVEL OUT OF MY PENIS? I AM 51 YRS OLD, NEED ADVICE...

SO i have had this problem but no sex at all ws involved, it appeared to happen overnight and has only gotten progressivly worse. Constant erections without warning and the vein has gotten harder, hot wraps are not working and massaging it hurts. My GP gave me a referral to Urology and Cardio for Possible Thrombosed vein and treatment. However the Urology department is CLOSED until June for some stupid convention. Is this soemthing that can wait or not?

i have noticed a lump on the bottom left side of my penis. It's about maybe 1 cm long. It's hard and when grabbed it causes a minor pain. I masturbate about 4-6 times per week. I think it's getting smaller as days go by. I noticed it about a week ago after i had masturbated. I dont know if this is lymphangiosclerosis or a thrombosis. Can anyone try to tell me what it could be? Please?

I have found them more common after an intensive or prolonged session of intercourse, and much more likely in the case of "dry humping", when more friction and pressure occurs than naturally would during intercourse. Thanks for the ibuprofen tip though.

I've got this too and It's making me sad. It used to be just a small vien that would pop out on the right side just under the head. Now it's much larger and is still there when I'm not even erect. I really hope this goes away soon. It's been a week and I am starting to get kind of depressed.

The information puts my mind at ease to an extent. Is thrombosis of the penis fatal? What are symptoms, and risk factors that are associated with this diagnosis?

It only appears if i masturbate more than once a day and only during an errection.If i get it sometimes i let the errction go away and then make another errection appear and it wont be there.However it is very stressful and is causing me to have anxiety attacks,the what if thinking starts up.What if it becomes permanent,what if it gets worse what is my penis becomes a big inflatable balloon.I cant get on anxiety medication becuase it will make an orgasm harder to achieve and that will stress the penis situation worse.Has anyone had this thronbosis hell happen to them and have they permanently gotten over it.

I just came from the urologist because I was really scared about this. I had a feeling it was deep vein thrombosis of the penis. He said it was anything to be too worried about. It hurts and I can feel it. I told him I feel it is also interfering with my erections but again in my life I go unheard. He indicated I wouldn't know unless I engaged in sex with, in my case, the opposite sex. I mean If I can't maintain a full erection for 30 seconds then I can't maintain an erection whether there someone there to have sex with or not. He did tell me however that the vein wouldn't "die" and that a clot wouldn't travel and hurt me. How do I get a second opinion though. I am completely naive when it comes to health care and red tape. I mean I broke my neck when I was 11 (dove into the swallow end) and didn't go to the doctor, pulled my own tooth. I tend to trail off, sorry. But he told me not to worry too much about it. I'm 50 and I used a ring at the base of my penis that the doctor said was too small; I pulled it off because my erection wouldn't subside. I put it on in the first place to keep my erection once I got it because I was recently bleeding from some scaring that I was born with in the first place (Hemangioma). The damage didn't show up until a week later. I said it hurts enough to keep me from maintaining an erection longer than 30 seconds and reaching orgasm. I now have a hard ring encircling below the head of my penis. I am now ribbed for her pleasure you could say. Go see a urologist as my word is NOT the be all end all (get a quicker appointment if you tell them you think you fractured your penis or severe penile trauma).

I have a clogged /swollen vein under the head of the penis. Urologist tells me that it will be there for the rest of my life which is shocking to hear. I try to squeeze the vein and sometime will deminish.. I'm told it will heal in time but it has been 4 weeks already with no permanent improvement. What else can be done to unclog or diminish the swelling?

Thank you for all this info. I wasn't sure if I had a thrombosed viend or not. After reading everyone's comments I'm positive I do. Its been at least 6 months for me and its been stressing me out at least now I know how to treat it.

It's been a week now and I still have this superficial vein that was bulging in my thing.. When I massage or put a pressure on it, i felt a mild pain on it.. then yesterday I tried it out on sexual intercourse to know if I will have a problem and yes upon receiving an Oral I felt that it's not that pleasurable anymore because every time she hit the vein I feel its uncomfortable... but in the intercourse, there's no problem... what remedy should i use?

Well to be quite honest...after reading all your posts, we cannot put faith in doctors. They make you feel stupid for even coming in for a visit. And they say we men are the reason that we die early. No, they do not respect us when we have issues. The same with the law system for child custody. This is a really jacked up society we live in.

I too have the thrombosis problem on the head of my penis. More prominent during masterbation. No sex for me, because I am embarrassed. So that is my issue. But going to the doctors, they smile and pet me over the head. Especially women. It's that "ah, poor baby" type of situation. Yes I do look young, but I am 30 and should be on with my life. Are these blogs, posts and that pointless @'(

So i have a question. About 6 weeks ago I masturbated and a lot. The next day a lot of new veins showed up and now anytime i touch the head of my penis it hurts a little. Is it because of the veins? The veins are still there and its 6 weeks now. Is it a blood cloth? I went to the urologist and he said it will go away but I feel like he did not know anything. Should i just try that ibuprofen and hot shower methods? How long should i not masturbate for? Thank you!
