Exclamation Advice please, this is bugging me out

A few weeks ago I noticed a tiny skin-colored lump on the shaft of my penis. I was kind of alarmed, but figured i'd wait to see what happened. I guess I kind of forgot about it, because when I looked at it this morning it looks nothing like that tiny colorless lump!

It's grown, it's about the size of the O on the back of a dime where it says "ONE DIME." It's red, it looks like it's filled with blood or something equally uncool, and it's tender to the touch. Oh boy is it tender.

Naturally, I'm panicking -- does anyone have any idea what this could be? I'm still hesitant to go to the doctor, as i'd hate to shell out the payment for something that could possibly just vanish on its own?

I think the fact that it is red, painful, filled with some type of fluid and has grown larger means you should be seen by a doctor.

It may be infected and require antibiotic treatment.
