Hi Doctor, When you talk about Hematoma and Palpatine of lump I get confuse because my penis has hard bump, when I check the pictures of what you just mention is totally differ. This problem just started now like six weeks , the hard bump is been there more than 20years . But now I feel like I have a cute that's why is inching. My surgeon told me that they have to open the bump without doing x ray, it is normal? His not swollen, only inching this day Be patient am not good in English All the best XXXX
