Red, pea sized lump near penis. Why is it growing?

Hello, I have a pea-sized, reddish, lump near the bottom of my penis shaft. When it first began in looked just like an infected hair, didn t really worry about it, then it started getting bigger. When i squeeze on it, it seems to be white and harder. Today i squeezed on it but nothing came out because there is no head on it. I believe this just made it bigger and now the surrounding area seems to be getting a bit swollen. Any suggestions??
