Question: Blood clot in the side of my penis..
|ChrisS - Mon Jun 14, 2004 11:09 am|
I have found a blood clot in the side of my penis about a year ago...just a small one. So I took asprin often in hopes that it would help, but now theres a few blood clots side by side in the same blood vessel and I believe its effecting my erection slightly. its about half way down the shaft and is about 4 little white clots all lined up beside eachother. my x girlfriend often told me to see a doctor but its very embarrasing.
I was wondering if I see a doctor will they give me medication or will I have to get surgery to remove them? I don't really want surgery...

Tamer I got your email and updated my profile but I don't have much of a history....no previous blood clots but I did have a cyst removed from inside my butt about a year before this started showing up...doubt if they are related.

You sound like you are describing a condition known as Mondor's disease. There is really nothing to worry about. You should see your doctor about this.
Mondor's disease has been discussed before in another post:
As it says in the post surgery is an option especially if it has persisted for so long. However, your doctor may attempt another course of anti-inflammatory pills.
