Question: Blood in frenulum of penis.....


 rick rohan - Wed Dec 16, 2009 1:00 am

Recently I noticed some blood stuck under the skin of the frenulum in my penis....it moves around under the skin....its exactly like a transparent artery (or vein,I don't know which) I stopped masturbation for a week, still the blood is there.......it doesn't hurt or burn at all.....What could be the problem ?

User avatar Hi,
Most probably this could be a clot(hematoma).The frenulum contains blood vessels(tiny arteries and veins) apart from nerve twigs.It can potentially happen during sexual intercourse or masturbation.

If the frenulum itself is not torn(as is probable in your case), this hematoma generally needs no treatment except perhaps rest, avoidance of further trauma and analgesics/anti-inflammatories.
Good luck!
