Brief Answer: It is submucous cyst. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts and photographs that you have uploaded it appears that you have what is called as Sub-mucous cyst over glans of the penis.. The glans of the penis has multiple mucous glands which secrete mucous just like saliva which helps in keeping it moist This secretions get accumulated due to blockage of the opening of the duct resulting in formation of a small lumps (Cyst)filled with watery fluid. Normally it goes away of its own but may need to be drained when persists for a long time or increases in size. Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical assessment and get it drained under local anaesthesia . It is a simple procedure and takes 5-10 minutes . 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. Dr.Patil.
