NO: Don't worry you will not get penile cancer, so many other factors involved to get one , age ( not at 25 ) , personal hygiene , not cleaning fore skin , exposure to carcinogens like chimney sweeping etc , uncommon in western world, you rash may some allergic reaction from detergents , under wear go and see your doctor and keep you mind at ease.

unlikely: Sounds like a local reaction to something you've been exposed to.

Yes: You can get skin cancer anywhere there is skin. If you are sexually active, it's more likely to be an std however. Get it checked out.

Wait two weeks: If it is a palpable mass get seen now. Otherwise there is no extra risk in waiting two weeks to see if it clears.
