Fracture/hematoma...: If this happened after sex, it may be possible that you may have a small penile fracture. When the penis is erect, sometimes when it is bent (during thrusting or movement during sex) or when you are using a unique position during sex, you can damage the connective tissue inside the penis and cause bruising. Seek medical attention if the area becomes tender, ulcerated or you have trouble urinating. ...Read more

I have had a small lump on the shaft of my penis it is soft movable and as been there for years would this be considered worrrying?

Unlikely: If it has been there for several years and is soft and movable, it is very unlikely to be something to worry about. If it changes in any form, it needs to be evaluated. A biopsy by your physician will yield the answer. ...Read more

Head's Up!!!: You, young man, are in possession of a dilated vein. It's dilated because your precious member is engorged with blood and the exits for the veins are clamped down to keep it "up." That's your lesson in hydraulic engineering for the day. Your next lesson is in how to manage that hydraulic wonder intelligently: Think before you act, then think again. Your big head is smarter than your small head. ...Read more

See answer: From your description, the most likely possibilities are either a dilated penile vein (varicose) or lymphatic vessel (lymphocele) which may either persist or resolve. Subcutaneous cysts are usually firm and round and Peyronie's plaque is firm/hard. Recommend evaluation by your doctor or a urologist for accurate confirmation and diagnosis if persists for peace of mind and discussion of Rx options. ...Read more

Its a wart: It is unlikely that this is a skin tag but most likely a venereal wart.This means your partner likely has infection with a virus named HPV. You need to go see a doctor and have an internal exam since you might have been infected and have internal warts or be at increased risk for cervical cancer. ...Read more

Blood blister/vessic: Havee your private physician examine it. In all probability it is a benign "blood blister" caused by friction or sexual activity; however if not resolved on its own within 1 week get it checked by a physician. Do not try to open this blister yourself. ...Read more
