Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have painful hard lump near base of the penis.

This could be either boil or a sebaceous cyst. However this can be confirmed only on clinical examination .

Consult qualified surgeon or urologist for to confirm the diagnosis .

You need to take antibiotic for a week. Get the prescription from your family Physician.

It should subside in a week.
