Strange Lump

There's a definite lump on my penis. It's located about half a centimeter below the head of my penis and is on the top side (the bit I can see). To me, it LOOKS like a vein. It's dark blue in colour, and when I pull my foreskin back it visibly is a lump. I don't feel pain when I touch it, and it is not visible when my foreskin covers the head of my penis.

When erect, it feels like a tendon, hard, yet slightly flexible. I'm 16 and a virgin, and I can't remember how long it's been there for.

The only reason I'm asking is because I couldn't find any specific information about similar issues on the internet, and I'm just worried it may be something serious...


Thanks for any help.

Re: Strange Lump

Please, any responses would be appreciated... I don't know what to do, and I'm not keen on asking my parents or a doctor just yet...

Re: Strange Lump

no one can diagnose you over the net.
if you want an answer, you will need to see a doctor.
this is practice, for learning to trust a doctor with increasingly serious health problems, and nipping them in the bud, while they are more easily treated.

Re: Strange Lump

Ok, let me rephrase.

Is there a relatively large vein that runs down the centre of the penis, on the upper side?

Or, rephrasing again... would a cancerous (or any other harmful) tumour be a dark blue in colour, or would it seem to just be a lump under the skin?

Thanks.

Re: Strange Lump

Yes, there are veins. Maybe you never noticed it before. They do seem to enlarge as teens as the penis grows in size. It would not be a cancer.
