Hello
I have a BB sized lump close to the end of the penis. On the shaft not close to the testicles. I am just trying to figure out what it could be?

Hello,
Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be folliculitis,cyst , some benign skin growth or genital warts(caused by HPV infection).

Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You  can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a urologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Hello,
If it is under the skin and painless then the possibility of a cyst or benign skin growth are important to be ruled out. A cyst is a closed sac below the surface of the skin that may with a fatty white, semi-solid material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis. It is usually painless but can become painful if infected. Then antibiotics are needed.

I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get any benign skin growth ruled out.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
