I have a small bump on the shaft on my penis, It doesn't hurt or anything I was just wondering what it could be?
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
When did you notice it?
How large? Is it enlarging?
Did you have unprotected sex?

Does it contain any fluid in it? From photo it is not much apparent.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no i dont believe there is any fluid in it.

Thank you Dave, for the information,
This is likely to be due to a cyst.
Epidermoid or sebaceous is common cause.
Other possibility of solid lump is wart but it does not look like wart.
Herpes is also unlikely as there is no fluid, pain.
Cyst usually does not need much treatment.
You can observe it.
If it increases in size or new lumps appear or if you develop pain or any other symptom, please get it checked by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
