Unfortunately: Unfortunately the word "mark' is not descriptive enough to help us know how to advise you. Since it is not pimple and has no pain then you can probably just leave it alone and not worry. But, if it grows or begins hurting you need to see your family physician.

Don't do it...: Known to all, no one have ever been born perfectly. In real life, i will absolutely not advise anyone to do something to the pimple-like bump in the penis. If it is small ; not hurting, please leave it alone and don't do something by yourself to injure the penis leading to possible infection. If growing in size or hurting, see doc timely and it can be removed under local anesthesia by doc...
