Hi... Thank you for uploading the image. I had a look at it.
This looks like a small skin and physiological tissue excrescence rather than a pathological bump.Moreover as it has been going on for the past 1 year without any history of trauma, I do not think that you need to worry about it.By the look of it it does not appear like a genital wart or human papillomavirus induced wart or a herpes virus skin lesion.Can you tell me apart from this bump at the penile tip, is it in anyway causing you any discomfort or any other symptoms please?Best regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Not causing any discomfort now, but last year when it started, it would like fold back opening the penis tip and it would rub against my underwear and cause it to get irritated and hurt, so much that I put a bandaid over the tip of my penis to stop it from rubbing against my underwear.
Urologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 28 days ago
Hi... As it is not causing any symptom or discomfort now I suggest that you need not worry about it.
As of now no treatment is required for this skin excrescence which is just hyperplasia of the particular tissue there.
The rest of the penis seems to be very healthy and so you need not worry about this small bump at all.
But at any point of time if it starts growing in size in a short period or if it starts ulcerating due to friction then you might require to see a Dermatologist for cauterization and reduction in size of the bump or removal.But as of now I suggest that you leave it alone and do not worry about it at all."

After reading this post:
https://patient.info/forums/discuss/bump-on-meatus--301199?page=3I think it is Balanitis or herpes 2
Urologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 28 days ago
Hi... I have gone through the link which you have provided.Even if it is balanitis there should be some signs of inflammation which are absolutely missing at the tip of the penis.
In this way I do not think that this is an active balanitis in anyway. There might have been a component of Balanitis one year back and while healing it has given rise to this bump. What is the reason why it is inactive and does not cause any symptoms right now and this is the exact reason why it does not require any treatment.Coming to the point of herpes2. I agree that it is a possibility but was it is completely asymptomatic and as such it has been there for the past one year, mingled with the fact that, an asymptomatic Herpes lesion does not require treatment, I feel that you should leave it alone and just observe it for ulceration and pain as I have suggested you before.If any of these start occurring including sudden increase in size, then it would be prudent for you to have a physician look at it or some blood investigations done.But as of now there is no reason for you to worry or go ahead with investigations of treatment of any sort.Best regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani
