Question
There is a painless lump type of thing at left side an inch away from the base of my penis, of size like a bearing ball or like a wrist watch battery. After months when I press it, a cream type of thing comes out but very small quantity. It is there for last few years. As there is no pain I did not take it seriously. But for last one year I am confused where to go whom to consult. Please suggest
Kindly note the lump is under the skin

Brief Answer:
It is a Sebaceous cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Sebaceous cyst over shaft of the penis since along time.

The penile skin is XXXXXXX in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.You need to get it excised in Toto under local anaesthesia.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you.

Dear sir,

It is not along my penis shaft. In fact it's almost one inch away from my penis base, between groin & penis base. kindly suggest.
