: : : About two days ago I was taking a leak when I noticed that I had a lump on the side of my penis.
: : : The actual lump is under the skin and when i pinched it, it just feels like a mosquito bite.
: : : It isn't large, about the size of a penny, & it reminds me much of a mosquito bite. There is no discoloration and it doesn't hurt, I'm a 19-year old
: : : and I've been checked and don't have any STDs. I'd just like to know if this is normal? One of my friends suggested
: : : maybe its just "beat up". Thanks...
: : Might be an impacted pubic hair or slightly infected hair follicle. Probably nothing to worry about, but if it changes in color or size or becomes painful you might consider seeing a doc!
: I hope so...I dont know too much about the human body but there isn't any hair near where it is since
: its on the right side of my penis...not near the base but not at the tip.
: Its just under the skin 'cuz I can move it if I move the skin around it. Its not just excess skin
: because there is some sort of "meat" to it, feels almost like fat. Anyways, if this is common
: or something let me know cuz I'm a little worried....never had anything wrong with my it before.
Not ALL person are the same I have hair 1/2 way up my shaft so it could be a hair follicle as the first person said BUT keep a eye on it. If it looks strange or gets larger get yourself to the Doctor.
