Not an STD: If you don't have risk factor for std's, it is not std's so don't worry much. Skin lesions need to be looked at to know what it is. Also, we need to know many things that might associate with the lesions like how long it has been there, or associate pain... The best way is to come see your physician.

Inflammed bump: The red bump could signify a small cyst and in of and itself is not problematic. However, if it gets bigger or more painful then have it evaluated by a Dermatologist who may need to treat it.

I'm nervous I have herpes, or multiple STDs. Symptoms: pain in head of penis, leg tingling, small red bump on penis.

I'm nervous I have herpes, or multiple STDs. Symptoms: pain in head of penis, leg tingling, small red bump on penis.

See your doctor: The only way to know for sure is to be examined and tested for STDs. You should do this as soon as possible and refrain from intercourse until you know for sure and any infections have been treated. Good luck.

I have a red bump on my penis?

I have a red bump on my penis?

Needs an exam: This "red bump" needs to be seen by a qualified physician to make a decision about diagnosis and treatment. Redness suggests an inflammatory type of problem, rather than a sexually transmitted disease. Having said that, I would still suggest refraining from any sexual activity until this problem has been diagnosed and treated by your physician.

I have a red bump on the base of my penis. What is it?

I have a red bump on the base of my penis. What is it?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to say without looking at the "bump", however, it is likely to be infection of a hair follicle. If it does not resolve in a couple of weeks, it would be prudent to see your doctor.

I have a small red bump on the head of my penis, closer to the tip. It is slightly sensitive but I wouldn't describe it as pain. What could this be?

I have a small red bump on the head of my penis, closer to the tip. It is slightly sensitive but I wouldn't describe it as pain. What could this be?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described is consistent with herpes. If you are sexually active you may wish to see a doctor for an evaluation and tests for sexually transmitted diseases. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.

I had received oral from this chick, and a few weeks, I had a tiny red bump on my penis. The bump was close to my urethra a little but not touching.

Oral herpes: Can be spread to the genital area through oral sex. You might inquire if she ever gets cold sores, as she might have given them to you.

I have a red bump on my penis and have never had intercourse what could it be?

A red bump...!: Sometimes a small collection of blood vessels form a lesion that appears like a 'red bump' on the skin. It's harmless- called a 'hemangioma'. One way to test this is to press on it and remove your finger quickly to see if it blanched white, then refilled back to red. Consult a dermatologist if it's got you worried or it's causing pain and doesn't go away on it's own.
