I have a small lump on my penis. I have not had any unprotected sex and also have a steady partner. I have this for about a month. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It is very difficult to diagnose it without seeing it through photos. Here I mentioned the possibilities, which could be the lump.
These are the two main differential diagnoses.
Since how long it is on the penis? Is it painful or itchy? Please explain the lesion, duration, symptoms and how it looks.

Here, I have attached the photo for your reference. There is no pain or itching of any kind.

I looked into your photos (attachment removed to protect patient identity) closely.
It seems like molluscum. Just take the cotton and press it. Try to extract out all the material inside it. Then, clean it with antiseptic and this is the treatment.
It is better go to local doctor. He will use topical anesthesia and extract out the whitish material completely.
As you said that you had only protected sex, sometime molluscum may come without any sexual contact too (very common to get it this way).
If you cannot extract it on your own then apply Podophyllin solution (Podowart) over it every night and see for two weeks. It may go with this, or else remove it manually.
