pimple or wart- like bump on shaft of penis

Doc,

About two months ago I noticed a tiny bump on my penis.  It is just below the head, on the shaft on the underside of the penis.  At first it appeared to be a pimple.  Since it has stayed for so long, I have grown concerned as it it still there and didn't pop like a pimple (not that I tried really hard to pop it.)  On a side note, I was treated for Molloscum about a year ago and everything has been fine until this.  This, however looks a bit different but can't be sure.  I have currently been sexually active with a girl and am worried about passing something to her, but don't want to say anything if I can help it.

A single lesion of this kind suggests a cyst rather than a molluscum.  I advise you to leave it alone and show a doctor so you can be sure.  If it is a cyst, it should be left alone.

Best.
