Question: Bumpy Region Under Penis Head.


 Luppi - Fri Jul 03, 2009 7:12 am

I am a healthy 19 year old male, and recently i discovered that after i retract my foreskin on my penis, right under the ring of my penis on the backside, on the right side ONLY, i have a slightly enlarged area that feels bumpy to the touch.

I can clearly distinguish a very small pearly bump, and what seems like a larger, elongated, vein like bump that i can move around. If i pull my foreskin down to the maximum, it looks like i have a zit over there.

Someone suggested it might be hair folicules or a thrombosed blood vessel, but i'd like to find out a professional oppinion before i get checked out and freak my parents out for nothing.

Thanks.
