What treatment should one take for lump on the penis which pains on squeezing ?

I noticed a small, solid lump about half an inch away from the base of my penis . The lump is just under the skin and I can pinch around the lump and squeeze it. It has no surface openings. It feels like a pebble and it does not hurt when squeezed. The only pain the is present would be the pain from squeezing the skin around it. Any treatment for this?

what you are having could be either a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma, which is basically a benign accumulation of fat below the skin. there is nothing to worry as these lesions hardly cause any problem, other than cosmetic. the only treatment is surgical removal. however it is better if u get it physically examined by a doctor close to your location.
