Thanks for you mention you had circumcision 6 days back the lymphatic veins in your penis have been disrupted, so lymph pools outside in the tissue, causing edema for that you need not worry much. As your body heals, it should go away. If it doesn't go away in another week or so, or it looks like it's getting worse (e.g. bigger, red, painful), then see your doctor . In that case, it could be an abscess or something as a result of an infection, in which case it'd need to be drained and you'd have to take some meds for a bit to fight off the infection before it spreads elsewhere.regards
