Lump on penis.

hi. for a few weeks now i have noticed a hard bump on the shaft of my penis (just below the head, on the left hand side). it feels like its under the skin. it is skin coloured and painless. it feels like a somewhat swelling and is a rather rectangular shape, the size is around 1cm in length and about 3mm in width. it has increased in size a bit. i tried popping it once as a white substance came from it once when doing so (much like a zit). however now nothing happens and it feels like its scarring up. i feel like it is an inflammed gland or something but im not sure. any help would be appreciated

I have had these before. They are hard to pop but can be. Usually it is like a zit or cyst. It sucks to have these but are actually pretty common. I wouldn't guess anything like an STD or cancer and they usually go away. If you are concerned, a doctor can tell you for sure. But I wouldn't worry too much.

I ve noticed a lump inside my penis, dorsal side directly behind the glans, rather quickly growing, hard, and has become sensitive to examination, has caused a curvature, and is causing noticeable discomfort during sex. what could it be? approximate time from discovery (felt like a thickening of a vein) to thumbnail size (width) 1 inch @ length, and thicker near the glans (@3/4 ) less than 60 days.

I would like to know the meaning of the following:

MR Scan of brain reveals normal grey-white matter differentiation of both cerebral hemisphere. There are patchy white matter hyperintense foci on T2 weighted sequence in the perpendicular & subcortal white matter of both cerebral hemispheres. These lesion are iso-to hypointense on T1 & bright on FLAIR sequence. None of these lesions are bright on diffusion sequence. These features are consistent with chronic white matter ischaemic changes due to small vessel arteriosclerotic changes. No mass effect / midline shift seen. bilateral basal ganglia are normal.

Apart from this cerebellar hemispheres & brainstem, internal auditory canal & its content, ventricular system, sellar and parasellar regions, and calvarium are mentioned as normal.

I would appreciate the meaning of this. Please reply in English.

Brain scan report states: There are a few patchy hypo densities in the white matter of the cerebral hemispheres which are non specific. Also: minimal white matter changes that likely represent early or minimal ischemic changes. What does all this mean?
