Hi all,
lately I've noticed that there are more veins in my penis. Especially when it's erect I can see them poking out. Why is this so ? Is it somethin to do wit puberty, cos I am 15 years old ? Is it somethin to worry about ?

Hey Yesman,

What you're describing is normal and nothing at all to be worried about. This article explains more-
"The shaft of the penis is exactly that - the shaft, the part that makes up the part of your penis that isn't the glans. When the penis is hard, it is common to see veins just under the skin. The veins can look kind of bulgy and weird sometimes, but as long as they are not painful in any way, that's perfectly normal."
