I have a small bump on my penis shaft and don't know what it is from. I have not had unprotected sex and from my research it seems like a sebaceous cyst and looks like it.
Hello,Can you tell me what it looks like?Is it near a hair follicle?
Doesn't seem to be near a hair follicle. Can I send a picture?
Sure. Just upload it here or you can send me a public link to a website like snap fish.
Yes, that is a sebaceous cyst. That is not a STD or anything related to it. Sometimes they just occur. Generally they resolve on their own. You can apply a warm cloth on it 2x a day for 20 minutes to encourage it to come to a head and drain. If it gets red or painful, then you should see a physician.I hope that this helped.
Are they contagious and will I contract it to my partner It occurred very suddenly so I'm a bit worried.
Thank you for all your help.
No, no - they are not contagious. No more than a pimple on the skin.
I hope that this helped.
