Two small hard bump on shaft of penis since last week, still there. I had softer bumps at exact same place before but went away in a day. What to do?

More info needed: It's difficult to judge potential causes from this description. If the "bumps" are superficial, genital warts might be the best bet; or just skin tags. If they seem to be coming up from deeper in the skin, maybe just skin cysts or pimples. Only way to know for sure is to see a doctor or clinic. If there is a national health genitourinary medicine clinic near you, that would be a good choice.

What to do if I have painful, red, hard, bump on shaft of penis?

Penis bumps: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention.

Depends: This could be gentile herpes, though herpes generally shows up as painful ulcers that can come and go. This could also be genital warts, a fungal infection, or something completely benign called pearly penile papules. All the same, you should see your physician during an active outbreak in order to be diagnosed and appropriately treated.

I have swollen lymph node on groin and small bumps on shaft of penis wich has black dot in centre, also had bumps on scrotum that burst and healing?

Here are some...: What you observed and described most likely represent hyperactive sebaceous glands on penile skin like pimples on face or elsewhere and the infected, burst, and healed sebaceous cysts, These bumps usually require no active care unless being mentally &/or physically bothersome. Of course, it is hard to give 100% right diagnosis without a direct look at them. More? Seek evaluation & counseling.

Sebaceous glands: They are probably sebaceous glands. Leave them alone. They are normal. Trying to pop them can cause local trauma and introduce infection. If you are still concerned then follow up with your primary care physician for examination.

Likely ingrown hair: Most likely it is an ingrown hair possibly getting infected. You can apply a topical abx like neosporin. If not improving get it checked out by your doctor. Does not sound like an STD though.

Cyst or wart: If new and not many years old should have checked by your dr.

I have bumps on shaft of my penis, one of them was like a pimple or hairbump. I drained pus from it. I'm scared! I have no idea what this is.

Don't worry...: What described suggests you got a tiny infected sebaceous gland which eventaully becomes a small abscess, ruptures, drains, and heals. In time, a tiny nodule wil recur, run, and repeat the same cycle as what you have experienced if in doubt, see doc timely.

Painless red rash / small bumps on head / top of shaft of penis after sex. Will last for a week and go if I don't have sex again / stay if I do.

Lichen planus: You are describing koebner phenomenon where trauma is the inducer in people prone to have the condition. The most likely diagnosis is lichen planus but psoriasis is a possibility. So rather than becoming celibate, I recommend applying otc Hydrocortisone ointment several hours before and several hours after intercourse and see if that helps.
