Posted on Mon, 30 May 2016 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hi doc,

I have a very small bump in the head off my penis. It is hard to see but the skin feels a little rougher and barely raised.

I have had unprotected sec with 2 different women but only one in the last 18 months.

I also applied 5% acetic to it and there was no color change. Any ideas?

Brief Answer:
Epidermoid cyst, excision is the treatment

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photographs and it looks like an epidermoid cyst.
It is a benign lesion which is harmless.
It doesn't look like a wart or any sexually transmitted disease.
I would recommend you to consult a dermatologist and get it removed surgically.
