Thanks for query ,
A hard vein on shaft of the penis is a one of the dilated and thrombosed tributary of Lateral Dorsal Superficial Vein of Penis which is seen in many normal individuals .

Normally it does not pose any difficulty in sexual intercourse .But if it is causing painful erection and difficulty in performing sex you may apply Heparin sodium Gel( Thrombophob )or ointment locally twice daily for a week..

There is no active intervention that is needed .
