Hello, I have been to the doctor and he hasn't been much help, I am saving money to see a private urologist and I'm hoping you can help me in the meantime. Here is my story: Just over 2 months ago, I began to feel a slight discomfort under my glans, I didn't pay much attention to it and figured it would go away soon. Unfortunately, it got worse and now I have this 'cord' running horizontal to my glans from mid-shaft and to the left. I have abstained from any sexual activity for 3 weeks but it still hurts if I do things like exercise etc. Also, the whole of my penis has changed appearance, veins are looking more prominent, spider-veins have appeared, the skin is drying and my penis just generally looks uglier. Also, it twitches sometimes when I'm sitting down. I do have prostate issues and I wonder if the twitching is down to that? Mainly, for now, what do you think the painful cord under my glans could be? I am able to push it down, so it's not really hard but it's there during flaccid and erection and if I push it then it hurts afterwards, but it is not tender. My biggest concern is Peyronie's. What does scar tissue feel like? I was stressed and masturbating excessively when this all happened.
There is a slight bend to the left at the top, when flaccid, but it's straight when erect. I have felt for hard plaque but there is nothing.
Thank you very much for your highly detailed reply. After doing my own research recently; I believe you may be right about the prostate issues, I am getting an ultrasound with a Peyronie's expert just to be certain about Peyronie's.
I have begun working on my pelvic issues with stretches, massages and change in diet.
If you're able to tell me, could you please just explain a little bit more about how my prostate/pelvis issues are engorging my veins? Also, would this explain the pain in my genitals? Because, it's not 'tender' pain as such, as in it doesn't hurt when I push on points but there is pain/discomfort in different locations. Ranging from anywhere on my penis, groin and testicles. Could this be the pelvic pressure pushing on nerves?
