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
