Hello Salt, It sounds like varicose vein in your foreskin (which can happen if it gets overstretched or if pressure forces the valves inside the veins to break from backward pressure) and lymph channel inflammation around the corona of your penis. Thrombosis is a clot inside a vein. It could be a clot in this vein I am suggesting might be varicose. I don't know. I certainly haven't seen it.
Peyronies is an internal condition that cannot be seen on the surface aside from the curvature that occurs as a result.
I'd say go back to the urologist and express your concern in differentiating between thrombosis and varicose veins and lymphangitis, as well as your concern that the pain has continued for such a prolonged period.
Are you doing anything to irritate the area other than applying the ointment?View Thread
Vik, the surgery center is one in Maryland along with many other well-respected centers like Johns Hopkins who I've mentioned before as a leader in the field. There are dozens of competent and large urological practices in the mid-Atlantic and New England states. Large practices are more likely to have the broadest experience, plus have relationships with elite specialists when warranted.View Thread
Thrombosis of any kind is reasonably serious and can sometimes be indicative of other cardiovascular health issues, or a consequence of local surgery, but you need assistance from your urologist to treat it. I don't know why he would release you from his office without a treatment plan. There is no room for "I think it might be" without taking the steps to figure it out. Don't let your doctor off without a plan.
Usually diagnosis begins with an ultrasound to visualize the size and location of the clot. Then most frequently the treatment involves a heparin ointment to deal with the clot, and 1-4 months of healing time with no aggravation of the area.View Thread
I happen to be a WebMD ambassador, resident to this Exchange (forum). That just means a dedicated respondent who has been continuously helpful in a particular area and am now supported by the real WebMD moderators when I call on them. There are many of these all over WebMD, although there's no general identification of such.
Yes, stick to the plan of no further irritation. You could try the cream suggested in the LINKS area, or you could skip it. There's no guarantee it will help, although for some people it has.
Otherwise it's generally a waiting game with no specific time limit, sorry to say.View Thread
