Question: Vein when erected , i can shift and it moves back

 Reno - Tue Apr 24, 2007 8:11 am

Some weird vein i've had for long...are you ment to be able to move veins....on my erect penis i have a vein that i move and it returns to the normal position....this has got me scared... any help?

User avatar This is likely normal. I suspect you are referring to the large vein that runs along the top of the penis. When veins are large enough to grasp they can be moved but generally will return to their original position.

Best wishes.
