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.

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.

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.

Here are some. ..: Without further information, it's hard to offer accurate guess, but what described may represent the occurrence of an infected sebaceous cyst on a penis of light-colored skin so it appears as a hurting and red a bump. But squeezing itself may induce pain as well. To verify its truth, seek pro-evaluation with detailed Hx + physicals timely. Best wisher. ..
