Is it painful to touch? Itching?

For how long you have such bump?

Do you have history of unprotected sex with multiple partners?

Burning urination?

Any other health or medical problems ?

Waiting for your reply…

Thanks

It is not painful to touch, no burning urination, no other health or medical problems.I have had unprotected sex maybe twice at the start of this year but have recently had an all clear STD test.
Dermatologist: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

Well, this can be related with a cyst , It is a sac which is filled with a fluid or semi-fluid material. This is benign in nature.
As you don’t have pain, so it is not indicative of any infection.

No need to get panic. It is not related with any serious issue.

You should avoid picking or squeezing.

This is benign in nature. It is not an STD. Please stop worrying.

It is harmless in nature and no treatment is required.

Hope this helped

Are you sure?Previous doctor believed this was a cyst?
Dermatologist: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Does not look like a cyst to me. A cyst is smooth, your lesion is not.

Should I go get this removed?
Dermatologist: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Yes, you should have it evaluated and removed.

I have a similar bump the other side of the frenulum, could these be glands?
Dermatologist: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Your picture does not look like a gland. Since there is a possible history of possible HPV, please have your doctor evaluate and possibly remove.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
