What causes a lump on the penis?

Hi, my partner had a small cut on his penis a few weeks ago, which healed fine. In the last week or so his noticed a small lump there. It s slightly painful to touch. He does sleep naked and we do have a cat that sleeps on the bed, so it s possibly that. However, in the past (before we were together) I had genital warts and am worried he may have it too, although I did receive treatment.

Hi,Dear,Thanks for your query to HCM.
Studied your query in full depth of its details.Reviewed it in context of your health concerns.
Based On the facts,You seem to suffer from-Viral HPV warts lump at the cut wound on the penis,as there is no guarantee even after the antiviral treatment you took.
So the cause is your earlier HPV genital infection,which spread to your partner.
Hope this reply would satisfy you and would help you to plan further treatment with your doctor there.

Welcome any further query in this regard,which would be replied in next session.


Good Day!!
