Q. I have a skin-colored bump on the front side of my penis (a lot down from my head). I thought it was a pimple and when i squeezed it, nothing came out, because it seemed like it was inside of my skin. The thing is it’s not that big, but you can still see it and if i squeeze it I don’t feel any pain or discomfort. I’m just concerned what that is and should I be worried.
A. It is difficult to diagnose a bump or lump without seeing it. What you describe could be a viral wart (HPV), or a skin tag. Bumps on the penis from herpes are typically red and painful. For further evaluation schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Clinic
