Hi everyone. This is the second time I have noticed this. On the right side of the back of my penis there is this vein, just about 5mm from the center of the back of the shaft. Now, I can feel this vein starting from somewhere about 1 cm above the root of the penis and it ends in a "knot" just about 5 cm up the shaft, I cant really tell if the vein continues up the shaft after the knot since it seems like no blood is coming past the knot. The vein from the root up to the knot is very hard and also a bit "knotty", like if there are small knots inside it. It does not hurt of anything, but it does feel weird. It's very noticable when the penis is erect, and when erect the knot gets to about 5mm in diameter in size. I can also feel it when flaccid, although its a lot less hard.
I have felt this vein behaving this way once before, but it returned to normal by itself during the day. Now it's the second time it behaves like this, and it seems like the big knot is in the same place as it was the last time. Now, I was preparing to do some pumping today, but I am scared that If I force blood into the penis, the vein might explode or something.
Can someone tell me why this vein is behaving like this? Is there a clot or something inside it, or has the vein somehow turned and twisted itself into a knot?
Do I need to feel worried about this, or is it a normal thing?

First thing is to figure out if its a vein or a part of the lymph node system. From your description I would say its a lymph node, a hot/warm wet towel and massage should make it shrink back to normal size. If its a vein it should have color to it, if it is a vein then you need to stop and rest.

Good question. I think it's a good sign that it does not hurt, but I would not hesitate seeing a doctor about it if it would put your mind at ease. I also have a very odd vein, but it only shows when I have been erect for a length of time, and it can hurt a bit. It is almost like a cord more than a vein. One time when I was 10 my dad noticed my dorsal vein and thought it was abnormally large, so he took me to the doctor and the doctor said it was ok.
