Posted on Wed, 25 May 2016
Question: Hi doctor

I am a male 26, is it normal to see veins om the underside of the penis.

I have uploaded two photographs for a examination which I have taken behind the penis I have never noticed these before but haven't ever looked. Always to be safe and get them checked.

Is this normal to aid supply to the penis?

Regards
doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

I've gone through your query and understand your concern.

This is absolutely normal finding. In some people, veins at the dorsal side of preputium are more prominent and this is not pathological sign. So you don't need to be concerned.

Wish you good health.

Now I have your expert self

I have uploaded 1 more photograph for you to look at.

Is this also normal?

It's not anything like varicose is it? Just normal veins? This will be my last question and I will close the question with great feedback after your reply on the latest image.
Why I was concerned was because they just looked a bit darker. Can colour vary due to race etc
Many thanks sir
