Brief Answer:
Maintain penile hygiene and avoid itching over it.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i can understand your concern.
Avoid itching over this bump, as it can get infected.
You should get it examined by a qualified Urologist or even a Dermatologist.
If it's recent, it may subside with a course of antibiotic.
Maintain good penile hygiene, and avoid moisture over the area.
If you check your hemogram, blood sugar,VDRL,HbsAg,ad HIV,it would be helpful for the doctor, whom you meet.
If you want an expert opinion here, you may send a photo of this bump, you're describing, and write if you've had sex with several partners.
Of course, it won't be the same as a direct examination.
Wish you well.

Brief Answer:
It could be a viral infection or STD.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
Went through the photo. Though not very clear, it's a skin infection.
You should get it examined by a local Urologist or Dermatologist.
On direct examination, a viral type/ STD infection, may be made out.
Do the reports as advised earlier. That will help in diagnosis and treatment advice.
Get well soon.

Hello, my problem is that i find extremely difficult to wear a condom. I have measured my penis lenght:18 cm and my girth: 17cm and I think it's pretty much average so, why can't I put on a condom without being so tight it cut my blood flow…Any serious advice would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello, I stayed round my boyfriends 2 nights ago and we thought it was time too have sex he's done it before but it was my first time. He never put a condom on and I'm not sure why? He put his penis in slowly but it was very painful. Eventually we had too stop because it really hurt. I'v been sore the past couple of days and I thought thats because I'v been stretched open a little bit. I'v just come out the shower and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood what is this?
