Hard, painful lump on top of penis shaft under skin
I am 15 years old and have a hard, painful lump under the skin on the top of my penis shaft. It is only painful if you touch it or try to moved it less than delicately but I am worried about it nonetheless because based on other answers to problems I have seen like this around the internet it is different from an average pimple or cyst. I thought at first it could perhaps be a build up of sperm but it isn't anywhere near the urethra so I don't think it can be. As I said it is on the TOP of the penis shaft rather than the bottom and is under the skin. It isn't very big, about the size of a pea and there is a smaller one just underneath it that has the same symptoms. I am worried about this because it doesn't seem to fit in with other similar descriptions of cysts or blockages I have seen.
