Dear sir,

I have noticed a bone like structure out of place on my left hand side of the penis. When I touch it, it does feel soft but like hard and boney.

Could you tell me what could this be? I attach photos for you.
Sorry I mean it does not feel soft but hard like a bone.

I am Dr XXXXXXX and I will try my level best to address your needs.

Based from the information and the image you are looking at the corpus spongiosum, its like a spongy elastic tissues and it will grow and feel hard as bone when its filled with blood.

Nothing to worry it pretty normal.

Please feel free to contact me in case of any further concern.

Thanks for the query.
