Suggest treatment for a bump on the penis

I have a small firm bump on the shaft of my penis just below the head to the left and under the foreskin. It only hurts to press on it hard. It is very noticable while erect but still detectable flaccid. It is connected to the shaft it doesnt move. What is it?

Hi,

If you've never had sex, little white bumps on the shaft of the penis may be pimples, a skin cyst, or ingrown hairs. These are common and they're nothing to worry about. Use good antiseptic cream like Soframycin to apply over bumps. It will heal soon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
