Hard, white, bump on foreskin?

I've had this white bump on the edge of my foreskin and dont know what it is. It's like a white rock under the skin, its rock hard. It's like a small bone almost and I think its trying to get out. It's like 2-3mms and its pushing against the surface of the skin, under it. I'm worried if I break the skin it might get infected and lead to something more serious. I've never had sex so I know its not an STD. I'm just really frustrated cuz I've passed up sex to avoid STDs and now I got this thing thats getting worse. Also, I've had something like this before, on my leg, but I broke the skin and popped it out. It's like a zit but the white thing's rock hard. Is this a calcium deposit or what?

Re: Hard, white, bump on foreskin?

It could be a sebaceous gland or a fordyce spot, caused by a build-up of a substance called sebum. You have no need to worry, as they are harmless and quite common. Leave it alone; forget about it and it will probably disappear.

You are very sensible to decide not to break the skin. You're right: that could lead to infection.
