I have had a cyst on the shaft of my penis for a while now.

Customer Question

Hello. I have had a cyst on the shaft of my penis for a while now. And recently after masturbation it became irritant and it got full of puss its been a couple days. Then this morning I went in the bathroom to see if it was getting better and it was popped. I sterilized everything and tried to get it out. And it came right out. Now I have a little hole and I don't know if that was ok to take it out myself. I worried. What should I do, is it going to be ok?

This may develop into an ulcer if the proper care is not taken. You may also need antibiotics. I advise you to see a doctor for the proper wound care to prevent complications. You should not have done this by yourself
