1 cm hard mass in the shaft of my penis. About 1 cm under

Customer Question

1 cm hard mass in the shaft of my penis. About 1 cm under the glands on the dorsal side. Painless and mobile. No skin changes. Best palpated by squeezing the shaft with two fingers. Couldn't have been present for more than a couple weeks.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?
Customer: No skin involvement.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No. I'm a physician--but not a urologist.

sorry you have this 1cm hard mass.

it could be a subaceous cyst or a blocked skin pore

It's not visible as there are no skin changes. Only palpable by squeezing area between two fingers.

it sounds like a subaceous cyst or a blocked skin pore

it doesn't sound like it is worrisome or cancerous or from an STD
