Brief Answer: Get your C.T Coronary angiography done. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have problem of ED and have been regularly using Vacuum Pump Device to get erection.But you sustained injury to your penis due to the device being left for longer duration resulting into getting a sore over scrotum. ,and had chest pain discomfort in chest and palpitation., Since your ECG is normal this may be due to anxiety and you need not worry at all.However presence of clot that you are suspecting to be should be ruled out by doing a C.T coronary angiography This is more reliable confirmative evidence of any blockage or stenotic lesion in Coronary Vessels. Get your colour Doppler study of penis done to rule out any clot in penile vessels. In the mean while continue taking pain killers prescribed by your Dr. Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you Thanks and Regards.

Hello again and Thanks for your help my question is if their was a clot would this be the reason my chest pain and hard to catch my breath at times and where the new kidney was placed in my body i also have pain there and in the scrotum area i place an ice bag on my scrotum and seemed to help a little bit would you advise putting an ice bag in this area this is the article that alarmed me Blood vessel damage can be serious and potentially life threatening. On airlines, a similar condition known as deep vein thrombosis can occur and cause fatalities. With the penis, a blood vessel is damaged and can block blood from circulating. If it remains in the same location, it can cause swelling or discoloration. When the damaged blood vessel and clot breaks away, it becomes an embolus. This clot can block the blood from circulating and cause the surrounding tissue to die off. It can also lead to a heart attack.)

The colour Doppler ultrasound will reveal any diminished arterial blood flow to erectile tissue or venous leak.

Brief Answer: Self examination will be more confusing Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing again. The pain and discomfort in left testicle and at the base of the penis could be due to mild varicocele which can be confirmed by clinical examination by your family Physician.If positive and embarrassing you ,you need to take pain killers like Brufen twice daily. As regards your chest pain get your stress test or C.T Coronary angiography done before you go to Philippines to rule out any cardiac problem , Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
