Small Lump on Penis

About 2 weeks ago this small lump appeared on the upper part up my penis, maybe a half inch below the head. I am almost positive it a vein with a buldge in it. It is the color of a vein, and when I am erect you can tell the vein line goes right through it. It is about the size of a pencil tip, and it is kinda hard. It only hurts if I really press hard or squeeze it.

I am have been leaving it alone, hoping it goes away. It might have shrunk a little, but it is hard to tell. I read somewhere else it might be a blood clot or a broken blood vessel. The solution I found was to soak in warm water and just give it time to heal. The last 3 days I have taken a warm bath to soak it, and I also keep a warm rag around it for about 20 min before I go to sleep. It doesn't seem to be helping much, but it has been only 3 days.

Any idea on what this could be, what I should do, or how I could fix it?

Re: Small Lump on Penis

If you're worried you could always have a doctor check it out. I've never personally given myself an examination for cancer but I know there are many sites online that talk about it and what to look for. Try a google search and see what they have to say. Either way, bloodclot or cancer it's something that a doctor should deal with.

Yeah, but I had a pimple and I thought it was cancer and freaked out. I would say make sure its not a pimple.

Re: Small Lump on Penis

Well just to give a little update:

I saw my doctor today. He said this was very rare and he has never seen anything like it. He determained it is definitely in the vein, it is a small, nodular bump about a quarter cm. by a quarter cm. (very small). He said it reminds him of callusation (sp?) of blood after an injury or bruise, but it isn't common in this area. I haven't had any injury down there that I can think of either. So he said not to worry, and he would consult at specialist and get back to me. I am hoping for the best.
