Doctor :   differential diagnosis of a lump in the penis is somewhat long and variable. However, what you describe sounds like a thrombosed penile vein, or perhaps may be a plaque associated with Peyronie disease
User :   CAN IT BE TREATED
Doctor :   if it is a thrombosed (clotted) vein then it feel like a thin cord similar to what you describe as a lump and may (or may not) cause pain. This is usually self limited and will go away in several weeks.
