Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have a lump under the skin of penis. Usually lumps are round but it is like veins and hard. It does not hurt but it is quite frustrating to have such thing on your penis. Can you help me?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Please share a picture of the affected area. If there was unprotected sex, then one needs to think of sexually transmitted infections such as Treponema palladium and hemagglutination, human papillomavirus (HPV), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), herpes simplex virus (HSV) and immunoglobulin IgG and IgM tests should be done.

If not, it can be a simple bacterial infection, you can use ointment T Bact (Mupirocin) for local application and tablet Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for five days. If there is itching you need to think of fungal infections such as ointment Candid B for local application and for itching tablet Cetzin once a night. Make sure you wash your genitalia twice a day morning and night. Use normal water and no cold or hot water. Do not use heavy pH soap.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
