Hi, hoping for some advice.

I had a small bump under the skin midway up the penis shaft which after a month or so I couldnt resist squeezing and it popped kind of like a zit with a solid white discharge coming out.

Now I have a small white/pink circle with a darker centre, no pain, itch or anything. The problem is that the healing sems to be taking a long time because it is on part of my shaft where it folds up. Any ideas how to speed the recovery of this?

Also sounds like it was a sebaceous cyst, any ideas?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Although I've never had a cyst on my shaft, I did have two - one on my back and one on my neck. Both were like you described. In the long term I have small, hard lumps where they were. They don't bother me at all, but I am not sure what I would think if they were on my penis. In any event, I would not worry about it. There are worse places to have cysts.

I know this is quite old, northerner. However, did you ever receive an answer on what that was?
