Customer Question
I have a small painless...
I have a small painless, essentially no feeling, lump on the base of my penis. It's hard to tell if it's on the scrotum of penis but it is for sure not on the testical. It was at one point much larger and painful and it did pop a couple times releasing fluid.

When it popped did it release clear fluid or pus ?

Any other complaints because of it?

Please let me know.

Honestly I am not positive what color the liquid was. I want to say it was white but I may very well have been clear. Certainly not like the yellow and green puss from a bad infection. And no other complaints. It decreased in size after it popped and stopped hurting.
Urologist: Dr. Tharun, Urologist replied 3 years ago

HI

It seems like a sebaceous cyst of the skin which got little inflamed and hence the pain the last time it popped. Now that it has shrunk in size it might remain so for sometime. But it can get inflamed again in future. As long as it is symptomless there is nothing to worry about it. Just keep a watch on its size.

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.
