Sore Lump On Penis
Possible Peyrone's: If you are refferring to a lump that you can feel within the penile shaft it may be a manifestation of peyrone's disease. It is not clear what causes it, most feel it is related to scarring following some trauma to the penile shaft. Because the plaque or nodule is fibrotic it can not expand during erection and may lead to curvature that can be painful with erection. Go see a urologist. ...Read more

I have a big lump holding fluids on the shaft of my penis and is starting to get sore and seems to be getting bigger what can this be?
Here are some. ..: What you described most likely represents developing an abscess in a sebaceous cyst, which will eventually burst and rupture itself and heal. But, a complete excision is needed to prevent its recurrence. The best time to do so is while a lump is formed but without superimposed infection; such minor procedure can be done under local anesthesia, If any doubt, ask doc timely. ...Read more

Have a lump under the skin on the shaft of my penis its been there for ages. Every now and again it will swell a little and be a bit sore if I grip it?
Sebaceous cyst?: Since this has been unchanged "for ages", this probably isn't at all serious. A sebaceous cyst probably is the best bet. Try to avoid messing with it, which might be why it swells and gets sore; you may be making things worse. Or see a doctor and ask about potential minor surgery (incision and drainage, or removal) to prevent risk of more serious inflammation or infection. ...Read more

My cold sore is scabbed up, but I picked at it and it bled. I forgot to wash my hannds, and then touched my boyfriends penis. The cold sore isn't a lump anymore, its even with my lip and all that's left is a scab.
May/not be a problem: Cold sores (herpes) can be spread through contact the way you described. It is hard to know whether you had active virus in the scab or not, but the germ occasionally sheds even if you have no sore. Your BF can contact his doc & see if he has a preference on how to handle such an event. If he already has genital herpes it may not be a problem. ...Read more

Bumps/sores on the penis could be anything from a sebaceous gland, ingrown hair, infected gland or hair follicle, std, genital wart, herpes, etc. If it is inside the penis (not on the surface or visible), it could be scarring, a clot, a growth inside the urethra, etc. ...Read more
I am 27 years old and have a small lump attached to my right testicle should I be worried? I get a sharp pain in my penis, and a dull ache in my testi
Recommend assessment: You should have a physical exam. While a very small lump where anatomic attachments are on the testicles are normal, anything that has changed, is painful, or non-symmetric from other testes should be checked out. It may be nothing, but catching scary issues like testicular cancer early holds the best prognosis. Best of luck and hope every thing works out well! ...Read more

I have a small sore, which looks like an infected ingrown hair about 2 inches above my penis which has a larger bump under it very sore, hurts to bend?
Folliculitis: Sounds like it could indeed be an 'ingrown' hair or a localized folliculitis. Important other information could be obtained with further questioning - esp. Regarding any recent sexual activity, as STDs would also be on the list if you've had sex with any new partner (s). Hopefully it has resolved by now - but if not, I would apply bacitracin.
