Varicose veins under the foreskin, also known as penile varicose veins or penile vein thrombosis, can indeed be concerning. These are swollen and twisted veins that may occur due to the weakening of vein walls or increased pressure in the veins. While they may not always pose a serious medical risk, they can lead to discomfort and unease.
Regarding the treatment options, both your doctor and the dermatologist have suggested different approaches. Freezing, known as cryotherapy, is one option to consider. It involves applying extremely cold temperatures to the affected area to reduce the size of the varicose veins.
On the other hand, circumcision, a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin, has been suggested as another possible solution. However, we understand your concerns about this option, especially given your age and the sensitive nature of the procedure.
