24 y/o male very healthy. noticed a single hard node just below skin on the shaft of my penis during erection. i can find it when flacid but have to search for it. its the size of a BB or smaller, there is no pain at all. it just showed up one day. no other health issues. just wondering what it could be. thank you
There are several things this hard lesion can be. It can range from subcutaneous cyst, to a plaque called Peyronie's Disease (where the curvature of your erection can be bent), to cancer. I always suggest that anytime you have a new finding that is unknown, have a doctor evaluate it to be sure. Good luck.
