Hello,: Hello, I can not diagnose the lump on your back. It might be a lipoma which is a soft fatty tumor under the skin. It could be a cyst or an abcess. Because it is now symptomatic (painful/ tender) it is probably time to see your doctor again. Let your parents know so that they can get you seen. If it gets red, hot, drains or you get a fever, you need to get it treated more quickly. Take care. ...Read more

I pull my foreskin back far back and I noticed that there is a small flat very smooth lump you have to look very close to notice it I mess with it but it doesn't hurt or itch it's just there it's been there I believe for like four or more months now?

Get it checked.: The skin of the penis can develop bumps, pimples, and cysts like skin elsewhere on the body. Most of these skin lesions are benign. You must get this checked though to make sure it's not a penile cancer, which is extremely rare in this country, but has a much higher risk in uncircumcised men. Delay in evalution is common, and worsens the prognosis. So see your doctor as soon as you can! ...Read more
