Movable bump on penis in the middle of the shaft. Tumor, lymph node or bruise?

I have a pea sized maybe bigger bump on my penis that is under the skin on the top part in the middle of the shaft. It is movable and I can move it around under the skin. I noticed it about a year ago and thought it might be a bruise from masturbating but I don t think so. What do you think it is? Fatty tumor? Lymph node? Bruise? Peyronie s? Please help.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Sebaceous cyst on penis .

The penile skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.

Normally it fades away without treatment however it need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.

If needed which are bigger may need to get excised in Toto (Completely along with the sac)
