21 year old with varicose veins on the penis. How long will it take to heal? What is the medication?

I am 21 years old and recently i have developed a varicose vein on my penis . It runs from the base of the head along my shaft.I masturbate a lot but however for the past 3 months i have stopped.The vein gives me slight discomfort.I am not sexually active. Will the varicose vein ever heal? If so , how long will it take? What kind of diet do I have to maintain to do so? Can I have sex without it affecting my life? Is there any medication I can take that can help the healing process?

Thanks for your query.You have noticed varicosity of dorsal vein of penis on shaft of the penis.In a scientific term it can not be a varicose vein as veins of the penis does not have valves.It is a vein which is engorged more than normal It will not affect your sexual life.There is no medical treatment for it.If at all you are curious about it you can get it ligated by a surgeon under local anesthesia.
