Hi Counterso, I would just like to know what your opinion is on if this situation does not get better. What are my options if any. I'm going on about 4.5 months now, things are still pretty bad/inflamed. erections are still quite uncomfortable. The bad spot is so easily re-injured, taking my pants off the other day hit it slightly and made the situation worse, I'm in a constant state of fight or flight thinking something is going to injure me around every corner. And just baggy pants can make the situation slightly worse. Just sitting doing nothing all day is really the only way things don't get worse. I generally think the I have to quite my job as the only solution and sit around all day but it's the only good thing I have going for me. And that may not work. The problem is not visible at all really, I can just barely see it but I sure can feel it. My penis is totally fried but a urologist would not only say he can't see anything but there's no way to test for anything as far as I know. I just don't know what to do I'm going insane.View Thread
Sclerosing lymphangitis does not have to be under the head as it seems most have it. mine goes all the way from the base and has a lump in it. and it pulses (part of it anyway). But I also have the classic swelling under the head, showing that it can be much different than is usually explained, but it is definitely lymphangitis. It may not be that in your case so you should see a urologist, especially if it is sore, and since it is sore you don't want to make it worse so NO masturbating/sex or pressing on it.
Is the swollen part clear? As in not blue like a vein?
Hi, the foreskin tearing and swelling sounds like balanitis. If it's been there 2 years it definitely won't go away on it's own. AFAIK, steroid cream and if that doesn't work, circumcision are the only remedies. And it is definitely something you want to bring to a urologists attention as there can be complications.View Thread
Also, in my case. pressing on that bump made the lymphangitis swelling under the head worse, bad enough that I could for the first time conclude that the swelling WAS in fact sclerosing lymphangitis. So I DO just ASSUME that the bump is connected. Or could it be that the bump is Mondors, and just the inflammation that was caused in the area by pressing on it made the lymphangitis worse. At the same time though, if I was pressing on/irritating a vein thrombosis, with faster healing ability than lymph channels, the swelling/inflammation would not have stuck around for months. Just pondering.View Thread
I found a couple pictures of a guy who just got circumcized, and who has a bump (that he noticed just after being circumcized) that looks exactly the same as mine in the same spot. In my case again, I have what looks like a swollen lymph channel that goes all the way from the base of the shaft all the way up through the bump and curves under the head with classic lymphangitis swelling (under the head).
This bump though is what is tender, and what I pressed on to cause untold inflammation/swelling/pain for months. Interestingly, I was adult circumsized about 10 years ago, and really I bet that's when this all started it just took a while to flare it up enough that I noticed it.
99% chance this is what you have, at least from the sounds of the symptoms. Just curious, does it only hurt when you press the "beaded part", verses the fluffy inflamed part? That is what I am experiencing. At the same time DO NOT press on it at all, it will only make it worse, I'm more sure of that than anything else in life.
I think we may be seeing a trend. people with the hard, grainy/beaded swollen "node" experience pain at that spot, while people with the classic puffy inflamed lymph channel do not experience pain. I also think these swollen nodes are what make this condition impossible to go away if you keep irritating the area, while people with just the puffy lymph channel can get away with continued irritation and report full quick resolution in many places on the net. Not that that is a wise idea.View Thread
