Customer Question

hi I burst a small blood vessel in my penis a few months ago. Iv'e had inflamation ever since and have been taking nurofen for it since then but still havn't seen the urologist yet. Today I noticed that a part of my shaft is harder than usual when erect. Is this normal and caused by inflamation???

I am sorry to hear about your problem

It seems that there is a thrombosed vein on your penis shaft

This can occur if someone has a burst vein on the glans

There should be no problem in the functioning of your penis

Sometime this hardness can get better in a few weeks

If you feel pain other than taking nurofen you can use Vaseline to keep the penis well lubricated

There is absolutely nothing serious in it
