I have had a circular lump of some sort on the head of my circumsized penis, what is it and how can I get rid of it?

Here are some...: Hi! ZCua, What is lump's size, which part of glans penis is it located, how might it have bothered you, 7 how long has it been there? These could be useful to tell what it may be, although it's still hard to tell without a direct look at. Nevertheless, it would be most advisable to leave it alone as long as being comfortable without changing its general features, esp. For one at 16. Long foreskin?

They can be removed several ways: by traditional surgery, by punch excision (a small hole and squeezing out the fat), by liposuction and by injection of a fat dissolving chemical into the lipoma.

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.
