Penile lump: This lesion will have to be examined by your physician, dermatologist or urologist in order to make a diagnosis. It could be a wart or, if it's recent, a herpes simplex infection. Since treatment for these is available, I think you should be examined.

Penile lumps: Genital warts are a possibility, unless they appeared very suddenly, but it would require visual inspection by a doctor to confirm.
