Question 1 single bump on penis! Help me out here

I have this little bump on the upper part of my shaft. Its very small, and flesh colored (maybe a little red). It's not an open wound/leison or anything like that. I dont feel any pain/discomfort of any sort and it doesnt have any irregular color to it. If i squeeze really hard sometimes, some white puss comes out, about the size of the end of a needle...very minimal. Any ideas of what it could be?

I thought maybe Mollusca or a cyst or something.

i didnt even know that was possible. It's not cauli flowered shaped, and i dont "THINK" its herpes, so i was just wondering what it might be. Im not scared or frightened, just curious to what it could be.

Not sure. I agree, it doesn't sound at all like herpes or HPV. It might be molluscum, but they don't really produce pus. An infected hair shaft is reasonable, but that should go away after a while. You may have to show a doctor to get a definitive diagnosis.

Hey. I have the same thing on my shaft and if you stretch the skin it almost disappears and seems smooth to the touch so i'm pretty damn sure its not hpv or herpes..especially a wart because i've had warts on my hands before and stretching the skin does not make it disappear. Mine is also not cauliflower shapped at all. I did some reading up and what it might be is, and my spelling might be wrong, a sebacious cyst, or penile cyst which are harmless. If you pick at it and it looks like a little white might come out than that is pretty much what it is. Just let it be and it will eventually go away or go to a doctor just to be sure.
