I woke up this morning with an erection and I felt some pain in a line on the top of the shaft of my penis about 0.5cm below the glans, I felt it and it was like a line of hard lumps, I think it might be a vein... but about 30 minutes ago I went to the toilet and after wards I thought i'd check to see if it was still there as i've had no problems all day.
So I get an erection and feel and it's still there, but when feeling it, the line kinda moved further down my shaft and is now sitting quite close to the pubic hair area, i'm rather worried about what this is, can anyone shine some light on this?
I can't actually get to a doctor until next Tuesday, possibly Monday...
Please help i'm rather worried.

I'll also add that i've not been sexually active for about 3 months.
Other information you may need:
I'm 20 years old and uncircumcised.

I found this while searching about also:

"Shane, your symptoms may be caused by a clot (thrombosis) in penile lymphatics (tissue vessels). This is usually caused by sexual trauma (even mild trauma may be the culprit) but this generally clears up spontaneously in 1-2 weeks. However, my guess is that your time table is longer than this. Therefore, the most likely etiology of your problem is Peyronie's disease. Peyronie's disease was first described in the 1700's. It is a common, benign disease of the penis of unknown cause characterized by the development of firm nodules (plaques) in the membrane surrounding the erectile bodies of the penis (corpora cavernosa). These nodules are masses of inelastic scar tissue. With erection, the nodules act like a bowstring and prevent that portion of the corpora from expanding. The result is curvature or deviation of the penis."

Also regarding the curving, I have had a slightly curved penis as long as I can remember.

Sorry for all the extra replies, but the lumps are still tender to touch even now they've moved down the shaft, could this be thrombosis and will it clear up itself or should I seek advice?
