Brief Answer: It could be a benign swelling Detailed Answer: Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear Sir From the short description given by you I would suggest you the following possibility 1. Retention cyst: The whitish secretion normally produced by the inner surface of prepuce could accumulate and form a pea like swelling 2. Sebaceous cyst. Exact diagnosis will depend on visual examination. Take care Best Regards Dr Deepak Kishore MBBS, MS, MCH Consultant Surgeon
