Thank you for the question.
The appearance of a lump in the foreskin of the penis can indeed occur one of them due to balanitis (inflammation of the head of the penis). Balanitis occurs when the head of the penis is infected, not only because of fungus, but can also be due to viruses or bacteria. This infection can make the penis swell (to form lumps), pain, redness, itching, and even discharge and odor that is not normal. Uncircumcised men are far more at risk of experiencing this condition.
Not just balanitis, it can also be a lump in the foreskin of your penis arising from other factors, for example genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, benign or malignant tumors, folliculitis, insect bites, contact dermatitis, and so on.
Correct steps you take, namely by compressing the warm water foreskin the lump of the penis. But that's not all, you also need to improve the cleanliness of your penis, including by not having casual sex, changing underwear at least 2 times a day, and always use clean water when cleaning the penis after urinating. Furthermore, you still have to check your condition directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given the right treatment. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be treated by a doctor given medication, surgery, or also other therapeutic modalities.
Hope this helps ...
