Any other men had a blocked lymphatic vessel in their penis?

So recently I've been having a lot of "vigorous" heterosexual, um, sex. Yay me; yay my partner.
However, my penis is now sporting a little more backbone than usual. Of course there's...->

I noticed the other night that when my penis is erect that there is a very pronounced and hard...something, right underneath the skin on the top and center of the shaft, running alongside the veins there. It definitely wasn't there previously.
If feels very much like guitar string is implanted right underneath the skin. The main portion of it is about 2 inches long. It runs mostly aligned with the shaft, but it does have one branch that goes off to the side for about a 1/4 inch.
My first thought is that it was a vein, but it is colorless (at least compared to the veins it runs next too) and seems to be way too tough and hard to be blood vessel.
Once I noticed it when my penis was erect, I was keyed into the position of it and now I can also locate it/feel it when flaccid, although it's not as prominent then.
Some googling around brought up one description on a penile enlargement forum (sigh) that sounds exactly like what I have - a "guitar string" right underneath the skin. The poster related that it was diagnosed as a thrombotic (blocked, clotted) lymphatic vessel.
I have an appointment to see my doctor, of course, but I'm just looking to see if any other man out there has experienced this. Is this a minor thing that goes away on its own, or is it a harbinger of future wang woes?
