Lump when pulling down foreskin.

Hello guys.

I'm a 17 year old make from the UK.

I've recived oral sex from the same person about 5 times over the past 8 months or so, and about 3-4 months ago when showering I noticed that when I pulled down my foreskin I had a kind of raised round lump thing on the skin.

Please note that the lump I'm talking about IS on the skin, i.e I can pull the skin away from the part of the penis and I can see the 'circle lump' markings on the skin.

The lump goes round in a circleish shape and it does have markings like a scar for example, as if some one has got something sharp and gone around in a circle to leave a circle marking.

Does this sound like an STD to you? I don't have any other symptoms...



Could it be masturbating too hard maybe?

Does anyone have info on what this could be please?

Thanks.

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

sounds like it may be a lymphocele. they are harmless, and typically go away on their own.

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

Thanks for your reply Tommy. If it is what you say it is, is it normal for it to be there all the time? Because it doesn't appear after masturbating, it is there all the time.

Thanks.

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

for a while, yes. look up lymphocele, and see if its description fits what you are seeing.

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

From what I'm reading it does sound like that. But I can't really find too much information on the matter.

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

it is secretions from the lymph nodes, which are blocked from exiting.
lymph fluid forms a lump under the skin. eventually, the blockage moves, and the lymph fluid drains. these cause no problems that I know of.

Any idea how long they usually take to go? And any idea what else it could possibly be?

thanks

Re: Lump when pulling down foreskin.

I've done alot of searching recently and I've come across alot of other people who are describing the same thing as me :

A circle slightly inflaminated ring that doesn't go all the way around that's under the penis head....

Since I've been stressing about it these last few days I can feel it under the penis but that is just because my mind is constantly on it.

If I stopped masturbating for a while might this swelling go or will it remain forever because it's pretty big and unsightly, but when I'm erect you can't notice it at all.

thanks
