Brief Answer:
Please give additional information and post clear photographs.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Male/44 - something on shaft of penis for last 6 weeks - working away - can not get to the Doctors - wants to know whether there is something to worry about.
Picture seen, good one but clearest and focused picture can give on-the-spot diagnosis.
Also provide some additional history:
- Is it of the same size for the last 6 weeks?
- Any itching, bleeding, discharge?
- Any history of risky sexual behavior, unprotected sex or so?
- Any other information that you would like to provide.

Please post fresh photographs which should be clear and focused on the lump.
