What causes lump on the penis?

I am having some problems with me penis. Three if I am honest. 1, I have a lump on the side of my penis head which started out looking like a blister but after masterbating I think it popped and clear fluid and blod came out. its been 2 days since then and its not bled or pussed but it is still a hard lump. 2, My girlfriend and I went on a long weekend holiday and I think I bruised above the penis (the pubic area) which I am guessing could have caused the next problem. It has been over a week and I am still experiencing pain in this area. It did have swelling at first which seems to have gone down. 3, when my penis is erect, from the base of my shaft (on top of the penis) to about half length a nerve (I think) or large vein is quite prominent. I only noticed this today but it seems to be a knock on effect from the bruising above the penis since I had sex last night. I was wondering if I could have contracted something off of a toilet, but after researching I found it is near impossible. Neither of us have had another sexual partner and have only been with each other for the last 6 years so I am guessing STIs are ruled out. So I was wondering if you possibly knew what this all was?

Hi, thanks for sharing your health concerns with HCM!

Well, If I were your treating Doctor for this case of multiple penile lumps, I would come up with following possibilities respectively:

1.     Benign and simple cystic tumor like some scab/edema or sebaceous cyst! It COULD BE SOME SMALL abscess that ruptured; therefore just apply some antibiotic creams or drops in the area!

2. folliculitis due to trauma to hair: apply ice/cold compress and antiseptics there!
3.     This one is normal; this is the thickest vein of penis; don't injure it!

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Wishing you good health.
