Question
bump on penis
bump on penis  
I've had a bump on my penis for weeks now. I can't feel it at all and it's not growing or getting smaller. A month prior to the bump forming I had unprotected sex. It appeared a day after having protected sex. I had hurt my penis while having sex that time and noticed the lump when I looked the next day.

Answer
The bump on your skin appears to be associated with some type of skin trauma. The name of the skin condition is called Balanitis. Treatment depends on the cause of the trauma. You can try  Cortaid or Cortisone 10 but if that does not work then see your doctor.
