Hi doctor theres this lump like thing on my penis shaft when i pull my foreskin back and i dont know how long it has been there. I showed my mens health doctor at my university and he let me know that it isnt cancer and that if it was dangerous he would send it to the lab. My dermatologist saw it and didnt know what it was. Im scared its cancer. What do you think, is it dangerous? Should i be worried?

Unfortunately a picture does not say enough. To make sure what it is you should let a urologist check it. And if necessary take a biopsy from it. That way you would KNOW what it is! It is unlikely that it is a cancer. More I can not say with certainty and I can not without an examination guarantee that it is not. Good luck!
