Discomfort due to varicose vein on penis. Medication and time taken to heal?

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?

1) It will not affect your sexual life.
2)Varicosity does not heal It is due to engorgement of vein which in its tern secondary to incompitant valve in the vein.
3)Diet does not play any role in healing or vanishing the varicose veins.
4)There is no medicine that can cure this.
It is your anxiety that is bothering you So do not worry .
