Lump under skin

I have made a topic about this problem before. Though, I have decided to make another one, since I have more information. I have a lump under my penis skin that is somehow hard. I had it for about 3 months. I woke up one morning having it. I am a virgin, so it is not related to sexual activities. The problem was associated with a curvature of the penis when it is semi-flaccid. I had a curvature to my penis even before the beginning of this problem but I did not have a semi-flaccid curvature. Anyway, I have went to 3 urologists who confirmed that I do not have anything at all. Also, they told me that the lump does not mean anything. Probably a cyst. The last doctor suggested I do a penile doppler scan. The result confirmed that I do not have any calcification or fibrotic plagues. Also, it confirmed that everything is normal. I asked the doctor who performed the scan about the lump, and he told me he cannot pick it using the scanner. The problem has really affected me a lot. I cannot find anyone to answer my questions. If I do not have anything wrong, then what happened to my penis? It was not like this before. Also, I want to know how to get rid of the lump. It is not painful but I want to remove it. I tried to pop it and that does not seem to work. It is so hard to pop. What is the required procedure to remove it? Will it leave any scars? Will this lump come again? Is this lump the cause of the semi-flaccid curvature? Please, help me. I have not been able to get much sleep in the past months.

The symptoms are suggestive of a penile cyst. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts.

Generally no treatment is required but they become painful then it means they are infected,Then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required.

If the lump persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

Thanks for the reply, Dr. J Singh. The cyst is positioned under the skin and cannot be moved. It is 3-5mm in diameter. I feel like it is stuck on the corpora cavernosa. Does that exclude any of the above? I heard that a cyst can be extracted by sticking a needle and sucking it out. Is that true?
