The lump under the skin may also be either a sebaceous or inclusion cyst that was trapped under the skin by the circumcision. Almost all such lesions as you describe are harmless but if you want a more exact diagnosis, it is best to see a urologist. ...Read more

See in real life: Skin bumps can sometimes be diagnosed via video. A patient can try HealthTap PRIME for a virtual consult (there is a fee).

It may be best to get it examined, so that the doctor gets the texture and feel of it. ...Read more
