Urology - visible veins

Doctor :   Thank you for your question. It is normal to notice changes in the skin of your genital region as you get older. Further more, the increased visibility of veins on your penis is not associated with any particular illness. However, if you find that you are having difficulty maintaining and erection, or experiencing pain then it would be wise to see a doctor. As of now, it is possible that you should not be concerned with this. Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
