I am a virgin and circumcised. After masturbating a month ago, my meatus becone inflammed. I continue for a few times a week and now there's a bump?
Urethritis: It is possible that you are masturbating rather roughly, which can pull on the meatus and cause stretching and irritation. If you are using lotion to masturbate, it may have alcohol or other irritants which get inside the urethra. Try a hypoallergenic lubricant instead. The bump may be caused by scarring from repetitive trauma. See a urologist if it persists. ...Read more
I have urethritis and there is a bump on my meatus. What can I do at home to help it cure? Will drinking water and stopping masturbation helps?
What kind urethrits?: Something doesn't compute. Urethritis (usually with discharge, +/- painful urination) usually is gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). Maybe herpes if the "bump" is painful or blister like. Assuming a doctor has diagnosed urethritis, s/he probably prescribed treatment for these STDs. That's what will cure it, not fluid intake or changes in masturbation practices. Speak with doc. ...Read more

I have 1 mm raised bumps on my penis tip. 1 on the glans, the other near the meatus. My only partner has HPV but cleared otherwise. Is this early hpv?
Could be: Hpv is a bit difficult to source as you may incubate the virus for months to years before they form visible lesions. Your "cleared"partner may have also continued to shed virus without visible lesions. Since male genital lesions tend to cluster on the glans the bumps you see may be early lesions. An exam for confirmation and discussion of your options for care is indicated. ...Read more

Original post got cut off. Main concern is urethral meatus is quite inflamed/protruding. It's about 5-6 mm in diameter. Very hard.?
See your doctor: Confusing -- a recent question was from a male who described redness of his urethra, but this question says you are female. Are you that person? Either way, I'm not confident self-diagnosis of "inflammation" is accurate, but meatal protrusion should be professionally examined, so see your doctor. Maybe genital warts? Don't try to further self-diagnose or treat. Good luck. ...Read more
