Exclamation Small bump above base of penis?

I am concerned about this... I am 21 years old male, in good health (or so I asume). I noticed a small bump almost an inch above the base of my penis, it is slightly to the right.. still within the pubic hair, it is pretty hard, feels sorta like scar tissue. I've had it for awhile I think, I remember feeling it about a year ago when trimming that area and not thinking much of it, asuming it was an ingrown hair or something. It seems to be within the skin or just under it as I can kind of pull it up, it doesn't hurt to squeeze or push on. it is a sphere, maybe more egg like in shape. It was about 2mm when I first found it a year ago and now it seems to be about 4mm, but my memory maybe wrong, so it doesn't seem to be "Growing" much.

My question is, what is this? cyst? scar tissue? everything seems to work fine.. Should I see a doctor? (don't want to spend money if I don't have too)

I also recently had full blood work done, I found out I have a blood condition called Factor V Leiden something or other, as far as I understand it makes my blood clot faster. but aside from that I am healthy and disease free.

EDIT: there is nothing abnormal on the bump, just looks like skin, when looking at the area it is very hard to tell there is a bump, if at all.

Re: Small bump above base of penis?

Ny guess would have to be some type of cyst. As long as it isn't growing or changing in shape or color..or causing you any pain...I don't know that I'd worry about it. No need to make a special appointment unless anything changes. Next time you see your doc just ask about it and have him/her check it out.

Thanks for the advice Lance2, I'll keep that in mind and pay attention, I saw a docter about 3 months ago, but I forgot about it. I'll be sure to see a doctor if anything changes.
