Thanks for posting your query.
The small painless lump on the penis might be due to friction or fungal infection or a blocked gland.
Other possibilities are-
1.Dermatitis- caused by infections, allergies, and irritants (such as soaps, certain creams). Lesions are usually in the form of itchy small red bumps.
When become white headed, it may indicate a secondary bacterial infection and formation of pus.
2.Herpes simplex - Genital herpes is a very common disease caused by herpes virus type2. It results in small bumps, genital irritation, itching, they burst into the sores turns into crust, that scab
and heal in about 3 weeks.
Direct clinical examination is essential to rule out the above conditions.
Such lump can be due to a harmless blocked gland which remains as it is without getting infected and does not need treatment.
I hope this answers your query.
