Ok I have a painful bump on my penis about an inch up the shaft, its about the size of a small pea under the skin. It is kinda hard and doesn't have a head or anything but its tender. I noticed it about three days ago after I shaved. At first I figured I had irritated it shaving because it felt raw like it does sometimes if I am too rough shaving. But then I noticed a bump. This bump is bigger then any irritation i've had before from shaving. I am a virgin, the farthest I have gone is a hand job from her and fingering her. She said she is clean and I have no reason to doubt her she goes to the gyno regularly and shes clean. I'm worried could it be an std? If not, what is it and how long will it be there? It hasn't got bigger or smaller since I noticed it.

Is it in the skin or deeper? I have a similar bump but it's deeper than the skin. Let us know what you find out.

Hey, I have the exact same thing in the left side of my penis about an inch up and it seems to be a lump in the foreskin or something. It is only painful when I press on it, it is red and kind of had, and looks like it stops where one of the hairs comes out, so it could be associated with that. I just appeared the other day and could be from masturbating, I'm unsure. There is no way that mine could be an STD, and I've seen the same thing on some other forums and there doesn't seem to be any indication of it being an STD. It kind of fits the description of cancer, but it seems much to sudden to be that. Please post any answers you come up with here, if mine doesn't go away in a couple of days I will go see my doctor, unless it seems to be getting better.

This person's question could be the same thing and someone gave their solution to it, hopefully this is helpful, I'm not sure if I'm willing to try it yet.

Don't mean to scare you, but when ever a lump occurs around the size of a pea, could be sign of early cancer.

I recommend seeing a doctor asap.

I am very worried. I have a small (half pea) sized white lump on the left under side of my shaft about an inch from my scrotum it is very painful to the touch. could this be a callous from masturbation?

i think it could be a fordyce spot, if you do not know what this is then google it, or look it up, fordyce is no std disease infection or anything, its from moist glands

helpful tip with lumps
I also have a lump its bigger then a pea and its painful I have also had one before when I was in Afghanistan my medic checked me out and said it was from not being able to shower regularly it went a way after about a week or so so all I have to say is make sure you clean your junk well especially after having sex they may not have a std but they might just be dirty good luck guys
