I have a big painful lump on the lower shaft of my penis

Last updated on October 2, 2020


I have a big lump on the lower shaft of my penis where my pubes are. It really stings whenever I touch it and I have to be careful not to bring my leg up too high when I’m walking or something or else it will hurt. Is this normal?


Is the lump on the shaft or on your groin? If on your shaft, is it red, does it have a head, and how long has it been there?

But no, having a painful lump is not normal.


I just noticed it this morning. It doesn’t hurt very much, it only stings a little when I touch it. It is red and looks like a large wart with a very small scab on it. I noticed a similar thing like that about a week before on my face and on my hip, but they are gone now. They don’t hurt and you can barely notice they were there.

Never mind, I found out what it was. It’s a skin infection called Molluscum Contagiosum and it is not harmful and usually leaves within a month. Sorry to bother you.
