Spot on penile shaft. Swollen, hard. White discharge when squeezed. Ingrown hair?

Hi, since earlier today, I ve had a small spot on my shaft sort of harden (??) It s near the middle of my shaft, and it seems swollen, and hard. I squeezed it gently, and it gave off a slight white discharge , and now it s sore. I ve never had anything like this appear on my shaft (or my body) before, and I m curious if it s an ingrown hair possibly??? That s what I m hoping for, at least...

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Sebaceous cyst over shaft of the penis.

Penile skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.

If needed some of them which are bigger may need to get excised in Toto (Completely along with the sac)
