I wish I was making this up...any advice?
« on: May 15, 2014, 12:16:39 PM »
As the title suggests, I am honestly not trolling here, but I would like some insight as to what anyone thinks this may be.  Okay, about 2 weeks ago, I noticed a small lump on the top of the shaft of my penis (yes, it's embarrassing).  I thought nothing of it, and then eventually it got a little larger and now looks almost like a pimple or boil.  As of right now, it's a little smaller than a pencil eraser.  It hurts only if something brushes against it.  It's actually part of the skin because I'm able to move it freely around.  It's squishy in texture, and hasn't gotten any larger.  But, it's concerning me that it's a growth of some kind and cancerous.

I faintly recall something similar happening to me about 9 years ago, but I don't know if this is exactly the same thing.  I am seriously considering going to the doctor about it, and I'm almost embarrassed by this.  Not because of going to the doctor and getting examined, but that it could be penile cancer.  As I said before, I really am being serious here.

Is it a pimple?

You don't have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

It could be a couple things... an STD.... a pimple... or just a irritated piece of skin.  I went to the doctors once for a similar bump on my penis.  I was a virgin at the time so I knew it wasn't an STD.  My doctor said it was just an irritated piece of skin.  He said leave it alone and don't try to squeeze it, it would just keep irritating it.  Eventually it went away on its own.  I doubt its cancer, probably an irritated piece of skin.

STD or a pimple seem way more likely than the C-word... I would go see a doctor about it.
