A lymphocele is a very dramatic thing and quite different than lymphangitis. Understand that there is a lymph channel ring that runs around the crease of the corona of your penis where it meets the shaft. It can swell up plenty and look like a bag and not a tube. A lymphocele is only when the vessel burses and leaks fluid into the surrounding area in an indeterminate shape.
If you do not have a lymphocele and you just have extreme lymphangitis, aspiration is not an option. It is not necessarily fluid being trapped as much as it is the vessel being inflamed, which is tissue, not fluid.
You will not likely have scarring (sclerosis) in such a short period of time, however the more dramatic the inflammation, the more likely prolonged inflammation will lead to sclerosis.
Your doctor may in the short term recommend a high-dose anti-inflammatory which could lessen the reaction.
That you don't feel pain associated with the inflammation is very strange, and could indicate that it truly is a lymphocele and no longer lymphangitis because the pressure has been released by rupturing the vessel. Only a urologist inspecting the area is going to be able to tell the difference.View Thread
Zilmas, Typically you only need a referral to see a specialist if you are following an insurance requirement, even in countries other than the United States. Or in a few, the State health plan (equivalent to public insurance). You should always be able to see a specialist if you self-pay, without needing a referral.
Yes, any irritation can make lymphangitis worse. Remember it is a fluid system with no pumps or valves, so things roll around in there and get blocked with no mechanisms and with irritation of the condition.View Thread
You did not refer to any symptoms. There is nothing "above" your note, so we have no idea what you're referring to.
The allicins in garlic are known to have anti-inflammatory properties, among other benefits. These allicins are available in garlic capsules to avoid the unpleasantness of eating raw garlic.View Thread
Thank you. Lymph has no color. Veins are blue. It is possible to bruise your penis causing a blue-ish lump, either by stretching or bending or applying too strong of a grip.
This is probably something that should be examined by a urologist to determine whether you have a bruise or if the damaged area is something else.
Importantly, any kind of penis injury should be addressed right away. Where there are opportunities to treat an injury, they only exist for a short time after the injury occurs. After that many kinds of injuries are not treatable with any reliability.View Thread
If you're feeling burning, you're probably using too much. The sensation of the wintergreen oil should dissipate within 20 minutes, but if you trap the vapors inside your underwear, it will take longer. If you're able to go commando for 15-20 minutes after applying you should feel much less zap.
Calcification of a lymphocele is not an inflammatory condition. I would not be terribly concerned about abstinence unless you have noticed some inflammation occur after you have been active. Initially while the lymph channel is healing when the issue first occurs, yes, abstinence would be advised. Once it's progressed to the stage yours has, I would not expect that physical contact has much of an effect on the remaining cyst.View Thread
I think that as long as you're not getting skin irritation and you continue to see improvement, you can continue to use the cream for a month or two. By the time you run out of cream, it's probably done all that it can do to help. There's nothing in it that should cause any problem for long-term use.
Whether you can visually inspect the area to see a change or not isn't really important day to day. I would only measure progress by the week.
Resorption of the lymphocele on its own would probably take anywhere from 2-6 months.View Thread
The cream you are using has the benefits of breaking up tissue congestion by improving micro-circulation, reducing inflammation, and stimulating cellular repair. So, if any of those natural processes would otherwise contribute to the clearing of the calcified matter, then the cream will accelerate the process, as much as your body may have done on its own, just more quickly. The cream is not a treatment, just an accelerant of natural body processes.View Thread
