This answer was rated:

I have notice a small lump/spot in my pubic area just above my penis. It seems quite red and angry looking currently...
Any advice on what this could be?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
How large is the lump?
When did it develop?
Is there any pain?
Is it increasing in size?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It has become more noticeable recently whist showering etc. No pain with it all.

When did you first notice it?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

About 6 weeks ago, at first I thought it was an ingrowing hair.

Thank you for the information,
From your symptoms it appears to be a cyst.
Epidermoid or sebaceous cyst is common in this area.
Sometimes wart can appear but the appearance is not typical.
Cyst can be inflamed & can appear angry looking.
But usually it is associated with pain.
Cyst usually does not need much treatment,
Warm moist compress can be applied.
However, I would suggest to get an examination by your doctor in person.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.

I will also arrange an appointment with my GP.
