Red Blotch on Glans(glands) of Penis

I have what appears to be a bright red blotch on the left side on the underside edge of the head of my penis (I am circumsized).  It is not exactly round and does not hurt, burn or itch in anyway.  It does seem to have gotten bigger recently though and I've had this red blotch for about 4 months.  I had done some nude sunbathing last summer, although I did apply sunblock everywhere.

Also on the left side, just below the glans (glands) on the shaft, it feels like I have a tic tac underneath the skin. To the touch, it feels like a vein that is clogged. I only feel some discomfort or pain from it during an erection or a short time after masturbating or sex.  Earlier last year, I did try this traction device last year to enlarge the penis (stupid I know) but fear that may have caused the bump  

I'm not sure if the two issues are related or not. I am more concerned about the red blotch because it definitely has gotten bigger.

There are many causes for a "red blotch" on the penis.  Some include infection, allergic reaction, trauma.  The penile skin has the same chance of getting skin cancer from sunbathing as other parts of your body.  If the area has gotten larger, you should have it examined by your doctor.  Just to be sure.  As far as the bump, again, without an exam it is difficult to answer but it can certainly be scarring from the traction, but it is best not to assume.  Sounds like a visit to the doctor is in your near future.  Good luck.
