Question: I have a small painless nodule inside my glans penis. I only noticed it when erect because it does cause the skin to crater where the nodule is. I can't even notice it when flaccid unless I pull the glans skin tight and see a small white nodule below the skin. No change in skin color or loss of surface skin. What could this be?

Brief Answer:
can be a fibroma

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Can you please post a good quality photograph attached to this query.
This is a very rare condition.

If there is a crater on erection, this may be a fibrous nodule as it may be attached to within the substance of the glans.

This may be a small fibroma.
You can get this confirmed by ultrasonography, clinical palpation by the Urologist and FNAC- fine needle aspiration cytology.

My queries:
Is it there since long? Is it asymptomatic - no symptoms ?

It doesn't have any symptoms other than the crater it creates on erection. I noticed it about 3 weeks ago. Could it be scar tissue from vigorous sex or dry masterbation?

Brief Answer:
Consult Urologist as this is very rare.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It can be a scar tissue, but to say so it is the rarest of the thing to occur.
Just wait and watch. It may resolve on its own. Of course it is wise to consult an Urologist once as this is very rare.

Just saw the photo. I think nothing to worry.

Do you have any concern it could be cancer?

Brief Answer:
Certainly not

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

No. Certainly it is not a cancer.
At least not seen in 29 years of practice and not documented as of I know.

Other than the depression , rest of the glans appears normal. If this would have been a cancer, inguinal lymph nodes would have been palpable by this time.

Regards,

Hi - I just tasted blood in my mouth, looked in and the right tonsil is a cut and slight blood. Looks like maybe very very small yellow or some spots on that tonsil as well. I've been having sinus drainage I think and allergy issues. No inflamed lymph nodes though. I'm concerned about the cut and blood though.

I have tenderness -similar to a very tender bruise under my LEFT (not right), breast, and it extends to under my left arm (cancer in lymph nodes?! -hope not). I also got some shooting pains in that area yesterday but today they are gone. I don't feel the tightness of chest described as signs of a heart attack - just the shooting pain that's pretty much gone and the extreme tenderness that persists. I should also add that it feel like there's a kind of numbness all around the left shoulder blade -skin has totally duller sense of feeling than anywhere else. Bad news -I'm a long term smoker. My guess is this is an inflammatory repsonse to plaque buildup in my heart valves/arteries. Whta do you think I should do, (besides not smoking)?
