Small lump on my frenulum

Hello,

I did a search on these forums and came up with a thread that is very similar to my own problem (this is the link [url]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=239200)[/url].

I'm 20 years old and I'm a virgin. I'm uncircumcised. About a month ago I noticed I had a very small lump the size of the head of a pin on (or under) my frenulum. Being uncut, it's very to see what exactly is going on, but I did manage to pull my foreskin back enough to see that there was a reddish bump on the frenulum (potentially under and pushing through it) that looked like a pimple perhaps, but it has been there at least a month now so I kind of doubt it's a pimple.

I had blood tests done about a week after I first noticed it (for other reasons but I did get the full set of tests done and they all came back fine). I have no discomfort except if I have an erection and my penis is pushing against something (ie. the bed at night) in which case I might feel slight discomfort.

Does anyone know what this could be?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Small lump on my frenulum

There are a few glands in that area. One of them may have become blocked or enlarged. Does it feel like a pimple if you put gentle pressure on it with your fingers?

Re: Small lump on my frenulum

Well since I've had no replies yet, I'm going to bump this and add some new information.

After some more foreskin pulling I've managed to have a closer look, and it seems to be a swollen vein (or something looking like that) on the underside of the frenulum.

Maybe that helps someone have a better idea...

Edit: I posted at the exact same time as you, Geoff, so sorry for the "no replies" thing. I have been having some acne problems especially on my face and back for years, but the lump does not hurt at all when applying pressure to it which makes me think it's not a pimple (since for me at least they are quite sensitive).

Re: Small lump on my frenulum

There is a vein in the frenulum so perhaps it's just changed as you've grown.
