After vigorous masturbation, I woke up the next morning with a swollen vein around the top of my penis, right underneath the head. It circles around the circumference of the area. It isn't very painful, but hasn't subsided, and its been well over a week. I had something like this happen once before, but simply not masturbating for a day or two was enough for the vain to heal. Have I done permenant damage somehow? What are some recovery options?

I think you just irritated the area. Or maybe broken some blood vessels in the area, which will take some time to heal.

Is there anything I can take or put on it to help speed up recovery time? Do I need to refrain from having sex while I wait for this to heal? Its not painful unless I really press on it hard.

Damaged and Swollen Vein in Penis
I know this is an old posting, but I hope somebody sees this note.
I'm too embarassed to tell my regular Dr about this, but I also have the same vein problem.
About a month ago, I was using a overly tight cockring. At the base of my penis, where the ring was, there is a lump in the vein. Below the lump the vein is normal, but above the lump the vein is hugely swollen up to and around the glans. The vein is rigid and firm to the touch is is painfull when any pressure is applied, including holding the penis during urination. Getting and maintaining an erection has become difficult. Will this go away on it's own or do I need medical treatment ???? Is the blood in the vein clotted and in danger of circulating back into the body with serious results ? Can I just pierce the vein with a needle to relieve the pressure ? Any help is wonderful, and God bless the anonimity of the Internet because I could have never asked another person these questions.

Morgo,

I would NOT pierce the vein with a needle. Do not try to do this stuff yourself. If it really is hurting, just take a trip to the doctor. Trust me, they have seen everything under the sun. If you did this over a month ago and it still hurts, go to the doctor.

You guys need to take your sick d!cks to a Dr. Id go with a urologist, or "d!cter" they have the most experience with sick d!cks. These guys are pro's and have seen smaller, bigger, uglier ones than yours, don't be such a pusy. They will give you good answers. I would absolutely not trust my twig and berries to anonymous(undoubtedly well intention-ed)internet experts. Smile

Swollen blood vessel on top of penis and painful
Sounds like my problem I've had for several years. Blood vessel on top of penis just behind the glands. Swollen blood vessel and kinda bubbles up at one spot and is very irritating and sometimes painful during sex. I just saw a urologist last week and he believes that circumcision will get rid of it as it appears to be in the foreskin. I am not circumcised and wonder if any body else posting this problem are also uncircumcised?

I had a similar problem, I first didn't do anything about it. Then went to a clinic. They didn't know what the cause was and referred me to a specialist.And my insurance charges extra for me to see any specialist. So I didn't go to a urologist. After 8 or 9 months the pain went away. I thought it was a damaged blood vessel and now it was healed. Couple weeks later I had the same problem again. I freaked out and went to a urologist, they found that it was related to testicular cancer. Last year I ended up getting one of my testicles removed. Now the pain is gone, but so is one of my precious testicles.
