Lumps under penis skin

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I found a lump under the skin of the top of penis at about the center of the shaft. I went to a walk in clinic a week later and the doctor said it looked like a thrombosed vein. And that it would go away on its own in about 2 weeks. Since then it has gotten bigger and they are a few more hard lumps above it. I am worried it could be Peyronie's  Disease. What do you think it sounds like? what can I do about it?

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
It is difficult to comment without examining the lump. It could be an enlarged vein or a varicose vein as it enlarges with erection. Small cysts and lumps at the frenulum level are normal. Sweat glands and sebaceous glands too can enlarge and appear as swellings. A lymphocele too is normal and so are pearly white papules. However if there is a possibility do get yourself investigated for STD.
Peyronie’s disease will cause upward bend in the penis. If this is the case with you then you can consult an urologist. You can read more about this on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peyronie's_disease
Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

I'm sorry I should have been more detailed. The large lump is rock hard and inbetweenthe skin on the top side of my penis. The small one are in the skin of my foreskin and are rock hard like gravel. They are solid. None of them hurt but when pressed it hurts my penis. Intercourse is to painfull and masturbation I have to be care full. I am pretty certain they are cysts now. I will be seeing my gp when get back into town. And I am getting STD tests as well. But I have questions I hope can be answered to put my mind some what at ease. - Do cysts go away on their own? If sohow long does of take. And what can I do to help them go away?- might I need to have them removed? How dangerous is it to have them removed? And might they have to remove my foreskin? ...since they are clustered throughout?
