white bump on penis
8 days ago I noticed a single white bump on my penis. That was last Saturday afternoon. I didnt notice it that morning but I may have missed it. It was between 1-2mm in diameter. It seemed a bit bigger on Sunday and Monday (maybe 2mm diameter), but by Tuesday it had absorbed back into my skin. The bump was gone but I was worried so I kept inspecting the area. The mark where it was never completely went away, and If I stretched the skin I could see the area where it had been. I have looked at the spot 5-6 times each day since. Yesterday, exactly one week after I first noticed the bump, it almost looked like it was re-forming, filling up again and looking more white and raised. I am not sure, but it now seems bigger than it did in the past few days, though not as big as it did last Saturday. If I look down at my penis, I cant see it. I only notice it when I stretch the skin tight and then can see a slightly raised area with what seems like a white spot underneath it. I am tempted to try and pop it, but it doesnt seem like there is much there to pop. I do have other tiny white bumps on my penis, near the base and a few on the underside of the shaft near the tip, but I have always had these. I am pretty sure the one I am talking about is new, or at least, the fact that it got bigger is new. It doesnt seem to hurt, though sometimes I imagine it does but then it goes away. I do have some pain coming from my right testicle, but I have an epidymal cyst and it does hurt every now and then. I have felt the pain coming from my right testicle ever since I noticed the bump last week, and sometimes I cant tell if the pain is coming from my testicle or the side of my penis where the bump is.
I am going to get a Herpes test (HerpesSelect) on Tuesday, but in the mean time I am wondering what I should do. I am trying hard not to keep stretching the skin so I can see it, but it is hard not to since I am worried about what it could be and keep wondering if it is getting bigger again. I want to pop it to see if anything comes out, but again I worry that will irritate it more and possible result in a scab of some type, which would make me worry even more. (about Herpes)
Almost exactly 4 years ago I had some pain in my penis, that felt like it was on the skin, and was accompanied by pain in my testicle. This seemed to last, off and on, for a total of about 8 months. Then it stopped. I had every STD test except for Herpes, because there was never any blisters or sores. It just felt irritated and the dermatologists I saw said they thought my penis skin looked normal, though I was convinced otherwise. Then it just stopped hurting, and for 3 1/2 years I havent had any thing like it. Now suddenly, that similar feeling is back, and this time I see a bump.
What does this sound like??? Should I be worried or am I simply over-reacting, over examining the area, and imagining the pain??
