Lumps in the penis can be caused by various causes, including:
Smegma buildup, which is dirt in the foreskin of the penis / skin on the head of the penis. Stools can arise from the remaining residual urine excreted. In the condition of men who have not been circumcised, the dirt will accumulate and can cause disease
Balanitis is inflammation due to bacterial, viral or fungal infections in the tip of the penis head. This inflammation will cause swelling and redness. Most will complain of pain and discomfort when urinating. At the age of children, children usually tend to be more fussy
Pearly penile papule
Ideally an examination is carried out directly to the nearest doctor or to a pediatric surgery specialist to ascertain the type of lump. Direct physical examination must be done to ensure the lump. If there really is a lump, evaluations related to size, shape, consistency, surface, bump boundary, and other characteristics of the lump are also important to consider in order to estimate the cause.
Investigations such as complete blood tests, ultrasound, urinalysis and other specific tests may be needed to confirm the lump.
Management depends on the cause found and the type of lump. Generally, circumcision or circumcision will be done if there is an abnormality in the foreskin of the penis. Circumcision measures are safe enough for young children, especially in infants and toddlers.
Discuss further with your surgeon so that you get more complete and relevant information.
