Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Lump in urethral tract


I have a lump in my urethral tract of my penis. I also have small inflamed bumps around the opening. Is the a STD or an infection?

Hi David,

I have no idea what would be causing an internal lump inside your urethral tract. A gentleman on this website sent me a query very much like this and we never figured out what it was and he went to several doctors. The only thing he could tell me what that he was going to a urologist to do a "uro-scopy," which is a camera inserted inside the urethra to figure out what it could be. Since you haven't provided an image to give me reference to what the "inflamed bumps" could be around your urethral opening, I cant give you a guess to what they are. So I will tell you the same thing I tell all my clients, consider giving your primary care provider or specialist a call and making an appointment if this concerns you. I would rather you find out what this is and make sure it isn't anything serious than find out its something horrible like a pre-cancerous lesion or lump.

Best wishes,
