Recently developed a lump, or small bulge in my erection,

Customer Question
Recently developed a lump...

Recently developed a lump, or small bulge in my erection, but it hurt. No unusually event or reason, it just happened. Even flaccid there is a hard spot, almost like a pebble deep under the skin on one side, not visible but can’t be felt. What is this? (45 yrs old)

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

4-6 weeks, hard

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Did have a doctor tell me about 6 years ago that I have a varicos vein in one festival (left), lump is on right side of penis

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.
