I have a strange, puffy painless lump directly under the head of my penis

It s Brandon again, Brandon, I m 27 years old, 5 9 and weigh 160 pounds...I ve noticed that I have this strange, puffy painless lump directly under the head of my penis. It s more on the right side on the underside of my shaft...It must have healed because I ve went to the doctor to get it checked out, to see if I had penile cancer or something and we didn t noticed anything -- I had to point out where it was. And I told him that I you know...and he told me it wasn t cancer and relax. So, I m wondering how long would I have to wait if I wanted to masturbate or have sex? Because I m concered that if I did it again it could get worse. Thank you in advance.

hello,
its not possible to make an accurate diagnosis solely on your description you made. it needs thorough clinical examination.wait for some days .it may come down by its own. and avoid all sexual activities till the the lump size come down.it can be a genital wart also. so rule out the condition by consulting a dermatologist.technique called acetowhitening may be required to diagnose. take care

Hi, my name is Brandon, I m 27 years old, 5 9 and weigh 160 pounds...I have no medical history other than deep seated anxiety ...anyhow, I m starting to go on one of my downward spirals. Because on saturday, I ve noticed that I have this strange, puffy painless lump directly under the head of my penis. It s more on the right side on the underside of my shaft...I do masturbate every morning and sometimes during the day and I know this could be lymphocele but the thought my dying of cancer is making me seek further and further into a mix of anger and depression . Now, it has started to heel yesterday, but if came back after I, you know...and I ve been on the phone the past few days trying to get to the bottom of this. And I have scheduled a appoinment. But I find so hard to enjoy my daily routines because of the possibilty of cancer, please help!

Hi, I m Randy, I m 27 years old, 5 9 - 5 10 and weigh 160 pounds...I have no medical history other than depression and anxiety ...anyhow, a few days, I ve noticed that I have this strange, puffy painless lump directly under the head of my penis. It s more on the right side on the underside of my shaft...It must have healed because I ve went to the doctor to get it checked out, to see if I had penile cancer or something and we didn t noticed anything -- I had to point out where it was, it must have turned more skin color and got a lot smaller over night. So I have decided to test the waters and do it again, and the lump returned, just to shrink and return back to skin color. And I told my doctor all this and he told me it was not cancer and relax. So, I am trying to understand if the swelling is related to me doing it too much, I mean more than 2 or 3 times a day over a period of time I mean -- nothing else is wrong, no blockage, no pain, no dischrage, no blood -- no nothing and I do the hand practice with my right hand, and the lump in question is on the right side of my penis...coould it be due to me going beyond my physical limitations?

Hello Doc, i was circumcised about seven years ago,,, there has been a painless lump under the head of my penis all this while, it is not painful bt once in a while itchy. At that time, my mates used to knock their penis heads with some thorns so as to eject some liquid under their penis heads but i did not do the same on mine as it was somewhat painful. I just got concerned about it and wondered if it has any setbacks,,, kindly advise

I have a question about genital warts. my fiancé found out he has genital warts and we have not done anything due to the fact I have been scared of it but we have been sexual before we knew what it was. I have not shown any signs but on my pant line in the front I have noticed a big purple looking bump to me it looks more like the color of a bruise. my question is could it be a genital wart being up that high?
