My husband has noticed approx 2 weeks ago a knot inside shaft of penis midline under the skin. He says it is painless. He cannot feel it when erect. Does not effect urination. Cannot see it only feel it. It is hard and does not move. Any idea what it is and how to make it go away. Thanks.

About the size of a B.B. or pea

Please do not call me I don’t want him to know I am asking. He is nervous about it already.

It sounds like a small benign cyst from a clogged oil gland and nothing serious

Most likely it will disappear in a couple of weeks but if it doesn't it can easily be removed with a cold CO2 laser by a dermatologist.

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
