Brief Answer: It is 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. The penile skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin. Normally it fades away without treatment however it needs to be treated if increases in size or get infected. Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical examination and further treatment. If needed it may need to get excised in Toto (Completely along with the sac) Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you Thanks and Regards.
