Hi,I guess you are the only guy who for some reason or another has grown his own little "French Tickler"!I would not worry about it unless you start having pain or growing other landmarks that should not be there.Good luck.

This happened to me too about 10 years ago (I am 30 now - how old are you?)  It started as a small bump on the top part of the shaft, just below the glans and just under the skin, then grew finger-like around the shaft of my penis to the underside.  Just like you said, it felt cartilage-like.  I was quite upset by it, as it seemed to be spreading, and even went to see a urologist.  He said it was probably a minor inflamation or scar tissue, and not to worry about it.  It is now 10 years or so later, and I have not had any problems with it.  It is still there and noticeable when I am erect, but it is not so noticeable that it is freakish or anything like that, and it has posed no obstacle to my sexual performance.  It seems that the finger-like "scar tissue" grew in a period of a couple weeks or so and then stopped.

So I think you will probably be alright, but I would suggest to go ahead and get it looked at.  Always better to be safe.  But like I said, don't be troubled too much; it is probably nothing serious.  I have not had any problems at all until a recent issue which I highly doubt is related.

I had this problem when I was 46. It was painful for me whenever I had sex, so it was necessary to have a circumcision performed (since I wasn't circumcised as a baby).
I asked the doctor what caused it, and he suggested "too much masturbation". That may or may not be true.  :-/
