Brief Answer:
can be a Cyst or a lipoma

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your feedback.
Understood the size of BB - noticed 2 days ago - closure to the nuts on the top of the shaft - painless with darker material - can be moved around like it is not attached.
The commonest cause of such a lump which I can think about are:
A small sebaceous or inclusion cyst
or a small lipoma
This is a benign condition and since it appeared/noticed within the last 2 days, this may resolve on its own due to body's healing mechanism. If not dissolving or reducing, it may need a clinical evaluation by a General Surgeon and excised if need be.

I hope this answer helps you.
