if you are being honest with what you are saying, then you need to see a doctor as soon as possible!

Are you sexually active? If yes, you should see a doctor right away as it may be an STD.

As for your size, you are completely normal for an adult. The average adult's penis size is right around 6 inches. So at 17, you are already at adult size, so congrats! Be proud of what you have!

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

I've had pimples on my penis shaft before and they hurt like heck! This could be a pimple or may have been an impacted pubic hair follicle. I'd watch this very closely. If the swelling and pain go away in a couple of days....things are probably OK. IF not, then I'd be seeing a doc. Also, leave it alone, don't try to squeeze it or mess with it as it could become infected....and you DON'T want that to happen. As for your size...good for you, bigger than average! Take care of it...it's the only one you'll ever have!

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

thanks for the responces.... i asked my dad about it, reluctant to show him, i told him about it and he said it sounds like a spot or infected hair folicole..

one thing i gues i should have done was squeeze it at its early stages, but then after i did masturbate once whilst this was still there. which didnt hurt or prevent ejeculation, but im now thinking that the active hands around that area may have enflamed it a little more,, i am not sexual active as of yet with anyone so its not a STD and i hope it has nothing to do with testicalur cancer which im told is ONLY in the testies and nowhere else....

please help with more advice or ideas

thanks you

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

after u saying u didnt want it to get infected..... how do u mean? i think it may be infected now.... it is a greeny coloured head, about the size of a pea, and now has a blackish dot on the very top of the lump...

what would happen if it is infected? could this ever prevent me from doing any sexual things in the future?

thanks

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

It could be a boil, which is an overly infected pimple that gets enlarged. It is normal to get pimples on the penis, especially during the teens. If a pimple got badly infected, it would enlarge into a boil, and may have puss. Its the green puss that concerns me - I never heard of that. Puss is usually white. If it keeps getting larger, you should see a dermatologist about it. And yes, dermatolgists can handle skin problems on the penis, as on anywhere else on the body.

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

I would definately go to you local doctor and get them to check it out. It is possible it is just an infected pimple. Possibly and cyst of some kind, but the green "pus" is not generally a good sign. It might require a course of antibiotics. Do you have any swollen lymph nodes in your groin area? You can feel these along the line where the hip bones meet the thigh (the part which bends when you bend over!) These are small round balls like structures and if inflammed generally are more swollen and sore. Let us know how you go!

CHeers,

Re: Scared 17 yr old, Lump on penis.............

I'm glad you spoke with your Dad about this, now it'll be easier to get to a doc since it is still there. NO, it won't affect your ability to have sex and I'm sure masturbating didn't cause it! I think because of what you describe that you should see a doc. Sounds as if antibiotics are in order. Let us know what you find out! And don't worry about showing it to the doc, that's part of their job.....they see penises all day!

Anytime, for any question, glad we could help. Keep an eye on that and watch for any other swelling or change in color. I think that probably now that it has popped, you'll be fine and you can stop worrying!
