I have strange, puffy, painless lump on penis

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!

Dear Brandon,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

The painless lump on your penis could be a lipoma.

Usually lipomas are painless swellings can occur in any part of the body.

Do not worry about the swelling. Better confirm with your doctor

Hi Brandon, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Do you have any bend in your skin? You are having Peyronie's disease which may manifest a Lump in the shaft of penis. Cancer within the penile shaft is very rare. You should be getting yourself examined by a Urologist to rule out the exact cause as there are various causes for this, like heredity, trauma, Hypertension or Diabetes. There are various treatment options for this like Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, Medications and various other surgical Procedure. Your Doctor may decide upon which treatment suits you once it is confirmed, after examining you.

Wish you Good Health.

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.

I was circumcised but they left alot of skin still. I masturbate daily. I got hard today in a pair of jeans. I went to masturbate and immediately noticed a fleshy painless lump on the part that was circumcised. What is this and do I have anything to worry about?

Hello Dr. Recent days I am feeling that during early mornings some days, my heart beat goes little high and due to that i feel any of the body part ( hand, or leg ) vibrating kind of sense. After i feel such changes, i wake up immediately and as soon as I sat on the bed, the heart beat becomes normal. I have consulted a Cardiologist and he has taken ECG and told me that I am normal, but he suggested couple of tablets in the morning and night to be taken. But still some time I feel this symptoms again. I have high BP taking tablets regularly. most of the time the BP is around 130/90. I am going for morning walk/exercise once in three days regularly. Please suggest what Should I do more to reduce my BP and get rid of fast hear beat? regards Ram
