<h1> PROMINENT VEINS OF THE PENIS </h1>
In infancy and childhood the penis is small, the blood supply of which is limited and therefore the superficial veins are not visible, specially due to the excess of subcutaneous fat, but as adolescence appears, anatomical changes occurs, and the subcutaneous fat disappears, the veins enlarge and become visible. This is a normal change but most youngsters think that this is an abnormality and this anxiety has been fueled by the Hakims and other quacks who consider it a serious disease.
It must be remembered that veins are present under the skin all over the body in places where there is more subcutaneous fat these veins are not visible, but in places like penis, where subcutaneous fat is almost absent, the veins become visible. Similarly the vein are visible on the back of the hand and therefore the visibility of veins should not be considered as an abnormality.
However, there is a condition which occurs in testicles or rather on the skin of the scrotum, in which bunches of veins become visible, which is known as varicose veins and if this is present the doctors should be consulted and these should be removed, for sometimes these can cause infertility.
