Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that the while mass under the penis skin or the foreskin like you mention it is probably an infection like molluscum contagiosum or commonly called as genital wart. It seems like you are having this issue for a long time and it can be cured with topical medication. Please consult a dermatologist so as to get the lesion examined and have it treated. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
