If : If you are sexually active then you may be dealing with an std and should see your doctor for testing. If you are not sexually active then you may be dealing with a cyst or pustule. If it has not resolved see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

There was a tiny bump on my penis. It was very hard to see. It was easy to pop and white came out like a zit. Is it herpes?

Bump on penis: Herpes is painful, with clusters of blisters. Blisters can be internal, and not seen. What you describe is not typical of herpes. But some nodules and bumps can be other sexually transmitted diseases. I.e. HPV, or small nodules from syphilis, and others. It is ALWAYS best to get tested, or you may not know you have something. Men are frequently not symptomatic in any way.You can test anonymously ...Read more

On the shaft of my penis i had a bump that looked like a regular zit and i popped it and a lot of pus and blood came out. Do u think its herpes?

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all like this; herpes lesions do not have pus and blood. And pimples are quite common on the penis. Herpes lesions tend to be quite superficial, whereas pimples are deeper. Think of herpes blisters as being on the surface (they start in the outermost laters of skin), whereas pimples develop "in" the skin. And most herpes outbreaks have multiple lesions, not a just one. ...Read more

I have a bump at the base of penis that looks + feels like a zit. Hurts to masturbate, doesn't hurt to pee. What could this be?

May be just an acne: It's most likely just an infected hyperactive sebaceous gland like an acne on the face. Its occurrence will not affect how you urinate, but give you some local pain & irritation. It tends to recur once infection once took place; so, it may require surgical ablation or excision. But, without inspection / palpation, it's still hard to give an accurate Dx. So, see Doc for sure detail and care. Best.. ...Read more
