Having a whitish pus filled bump on the penis. Herpes?

My 20 year old son had a white bump on the shaft of his penis not far from the base that he believes he s had for months. He decided to pop it yesterday and some pus came out. He s concerned it might be herpes . Any thoughts? I had seen it before and thought it was like other bumps that young men get at his age or even a pimple but since he believes he s had it for a significant amount of time I m not sure.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your sn has whatis aclled as Sebaceous cysts snce a long time.
However fnal diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination by a qualified General Surgeon or Urologist.
In the mean while take broad spectrum antibiotics for 5 days .
Further line of treatment will be decided by him .If needed it may have to get excised in Toto under local anaesthesia.
