In brief: See a Doctor

Stop wondering and go see a doctor and get a diagnosis.
It could be a pimple, a skin infection or a sexually transmitted disease you will want to get treated.

Please do not ignore this, even if the ulcer goes away. Primary syphilis ulcers can disappear without the disease having been cured, and if you have one STD, there is always a fair chance that you have more than one. Get tested. See a doctor like Dr. Ahrendsen.

In brief: See a doc ASAP!

If not painful it could be primary syphilis - needs treatment with penicillin immediately.
If painful, it could be herpes or lymphogranuloma venereum - these require treatment as well. Until then, it is important that you abstain from sexual activity or else you will spread the diseases. It is also ethically important to tell your sexual partners to be tested for stds, to stop transmission.

In brief: Not a good sign

An ulcer there is never a good sign, and could mean you have a very serious venereal disease.
You should run, don't walk, to a clinic and be tested. Oh, and please wear a condom! good luck.
