Avatar_n_tn Hello, The veins that you have noted on epnis could be varicose veins.Development of new veins is not possible.It is generally that the old veins when varicosed are seen as bulding vein or new veins. The varicose vein on the penis does not require any treatment. It may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended.Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. No other treatment is required.
Avatar_n_tn i always have pain only on the right side of my prostrate and the right leg and lower right side of my back and hip. the varicose veins are on the right side of my penis to and my right leg behind my nee. i am starting to wonder if my whole problem might be some kind of stricture some were in my pelvis on the right side. and im getting very worried about these varicose veins poping up on my leg does this make any sence to anyone reading this.
Avatar_m_tn symptoms from week 1 subsided but I noticed inflammation of veins on my penis (two definitely new enlarged veins and some more prominent small purple veins - these are still slightly painful) and my hemorrhoids were far worse. Week 3: first began to experience electric pain through groin area and noticed prominent varicose veins in right groin. also noticed numbness and tingling sensations throughout my body (pins and needles). the best I can describe it is short electric shock like pains.
Avatar_m_tn Hello, From your symptoms it looks like spider veins or varicose veins penis. The varicose vein on the penis does not require any treatment. It may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended. Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. No other treatment is required. In fact most of the treatment like laser treatment will cause scarring,infection,nerve and vascular damage.
Avatar_f_tn i can see a few small veins bulging with a mirror im 30 weeks pregnant . I though it was a yeast infection but its not. It makes sex very painful and after sex even worse cause of swelling. I can handle the itch and swelling with an ice pack but it makes goung in public difficult because of my underwear irritating and wrdging in places...?
Avatar_m_tn No other treatment is required.In fact most of the treatment like laser treatment will cause scarring,infection,nerve and vascular damage.So in my opinion,you should leave them as such. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar_n_tn Have any of you noticed that your veins are more visible? Since December the veins in my arms, hands, chest, breasts, lower abdomen, and legs are a lot more noticable. I am not too concerned, but it looks creepy and started all of the sudden. I am drinking a lot of water now, but when it started I wasn't. I am just curious if this is part of fibro or just another weird/random symptom. Thanks!

Avatar_f_tn Hello and sorry for the late reply. Varicose veins can cause discoloration of the skin. But if there is itching, it could be due to an allergic reaction. The other causes could be due to a fungal infection, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis and scabies. Usually there is itching and some amount of inflammation with these conditions. You will need to consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you can take OTC Benadryl. Regards.
Avatar_m_tn Ive had increased varicose especially in left leg since a fusion surged L4-L5 4 yrs ago. Two weeks ago my blood pressure shot thru the roof a day after donating blood. Felt faint, nearly passed out. BP is staying down. When this happens my leg gets cold from knee down to foot. I notice more pulsing and fluttering on the front beside the the shin bone or front of calf muscle. The fluttering goes up and down my whole leg now.
Avatar_m_tn I found this advice in a thread from 2009 and sounds similar to what you described. These swollen veins can be due to varicose veins or superficial thrombophlebitis. Penile varicose veins may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended. Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. Mondor’s disease is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis.
Avatar_m_tn I have been treated for an inflamed prostate, and the pain in my penis has subsided, but the tip (around the hole) has some sort of bumps. Several doctors have suggested that they may be engorged veins, but I have NEVER heard of veins being around this particular area? I have been tested in January, Febuary, May, and July for hsv 1 2 igm and igm, hiv, hep a b and c, ghoannrea, chlamydia, and syllaphlus, I have also been tested for any bacterial (sti, uti, etc), and fungal (yeast, candid etc.
623537_tn?1243568508 Although dental problems have been the bane of mankind since the dawn of time, factory food products, social eating traditions, and use of sugar in just about everything does nothing to prevent tooth decay. People in modern society unfamiliar with whole foods just keep going to the dentist for their repair until they are 80 years old or so and get their remaining teeth removed and replaced with dentures. Loss of a single tooth is sorrowful, a strike against our physical perfection.

Avatar_m_tn It could be a varicocele (varicose vein). And varicose veins can develop clots. Also, twists can happen, called a testicular torsion. This is an emergency type problem, and I think the pain would have sent you to the emergency room. But a urologist is the best doctor to see. He can assess you for varicocele or epididymitis and reassure you about testicular torsion not being the problem. But honestly I think tight muscles could be just irritating the nerves additionally.
Avatar_m_tn My mother is 63years old, About 4 and 1/2 years ago some black dots started appearing in her feet, then she was diagnosed with varicose veins after visiting for continuous clinics at an hospital. Then they scheduled for a Varicose vein related surgery but unfortunately that was cancelled twice at the very last movement (3 Years ago).
Avatar_m_tn Hello, Common causes of ankle swelling include traumatic Injury such as an ankle sprain or a fracture,gout (accumulation of uric acid crystals within the fluid of your ankle),ankle arthritis,infection (cellulitis or septic joint), problems with blood flow like DVT can impair normal circulation and lead to swelling around the ankles,pregnancy, obesity, and varicose veins.
Avatar_m_tn There is no discharge from my penis and the rash that was on the head of my penis as a result of the yeast infection has gone away. This wiry tube runs from where the penis connects with the pelvis and runs up the shaft of my penis all the way to the top of my foreskin. What could this be?
Avatar_f_tn As long as it is not causing any problems, I would not worry about it. There are different colored veins and blood vessels that have odd shapes on mine, too--and have never posed a problem. Hope this helps!
Avatar_n_tn My mother has similar problems with her legs, and both of us bruise like tomatoes. While both my mom and I do also suffer from varicose and spider veins, this is NOT what my question is about. I am trying to determine the cause of (and hopefully treat) the all-over reddish honeycomb pattern. Has anyone heard or seen or experienced this?
Avatar_n_tn Many recent studies have highlighted the importance of spider nevi as a useful sign for the assessment of severity of various hepatic diseases. Romagnuolo et al[2] found that spider nevi and thrombocytopaenia, with either splenomegaly or hypoalbuminaemia, were useful for predicting the presence of hepatic fibrosis in patients with Hepatitis C infection.
Avatar_m_tn (legs) brain fog 47% of the time now, little red bumps on knees and traveling up thighs and maybe they have always been there - but I can see slight varicose looking veins on random places on leg tests already done (all negative): B12 deficiency, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Epstein Barr, kidney functioning (normal), no thyroid problems, lyme antibody or just the basic unreliable one....
Avatar_n_tn You should also know that I have fairly severe stasis dermatitis (I believe it is called) on my calf as the result of varicose veins, with the hard, scaly, discolored patches etc. These new symptoms appeared immediately above and to the side of the discoloration, hard scaly area (with exception of the one lone "bug bite" above my knee.) I have also had jock itch intermittently which responds to over the counter jock itch cream (Tinactin, I believe).
Avatar_n_tn Varices (internal varicose veins) are caused by portal hypertension. I'll try to explain varices in my own words, and then I'll give you a page to look at-- There's a big vein that carries blood to the liver, called the 'portal vein'. Blood flows through the portal vein, through the spleen....then through the liver (the liver filters the blood),........to get to the heart. Cirrhosis (scar tissue in the liver) gets in the way of this blood flow.
Avatar_f_tn •Uterine fibroids or polyps •Injury or disease of the vaginal opening (caused by intercourse, infection, polyp, genital warts, ulcer, or varicose veins) •Vaginal injury from insertion of foreign objects, from malignancy, or from infection •Stopping and starting birth control pills or estrogens •Low thyroid function •IUD use (may cause occasional spotting) •Drugs such as anticoagulants •Stress •Implantation I got this info from the MH Information, Symptoms, Treatments and Resources
Avatar_m_tn If not corrected, this can lead to breakdown of the skin and varicose ulcers which are difficult to heal. Follow these steps to lessen the effects of varicose veins: - Reduce intraabdominal pressure. - Resolve constipation. You should be having 2-3 bowel movements per day. - Maintain a healthy weight. - Increase fiber in your diet through fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. - Increase your water intake. To determine how much water to drink, divide your weight in pounds by two.
Avatar_n_tn Just so happened that I had an appt the next day and something turned up in my urine too. Somekind of infection. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.
Avatar_n_tn It could due to an infection, a ruptured sebaceous cyst, varicose veins or due to a damage to the capillaries of the scrotum producing a lesion called angiokeratoma. Please do consult a urologist and seek an opinion on the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar_f_tn What is your age? Usually, varicose veins and telangiectasia (spider veins) are normal veins that have dilated under the influence of increased venous pressure. They are the visible surface manifestation of an underlying syndrome of venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency syndromes allow venous blood to escape from its normal flow path and flow in a retrograde direction down into an already congested leg.
