Customer Question

I have a small bump on my penile shaft. It's been there for a week now. No pain in intonation or fluid coming out. It's dried up a little and beginning to close but it's been more than a week. I have been using condoms while having a sexual relationship. Not active now since I saw this. I was wondering if someone could tell me what it is.
