Worrying lump - please help

Postby worried12345 on Thu Aug 22, 2019 7:43 pm

Hi,

I have a worrying lump on my foreskin, with a sore in middle, been to two docs and they say it is balanitis.... using canestan HC regularly but after two weeks appears to get bigger... they ruled out herpes simplex and other infections with urine sample

Getting very concerned it is getting worse. Seems to split worse when retracting foreskin to wash

please can you help would be so grateful

Hi worried12345

Thank you for your recent post. We can appreciate your concerns, it is good that your doctor has ruled out general infections but if the lump is getting bigger or is more painful you really must keep going back to your doctor. They may be able to recommend another cream or if that isn't working maybe a tablet.

Last year we ran an online clinic relating to all issues penis, we've included the link as you may find it useful to have a look through, http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/online_clinics/ask_expert_tuf_penis_issues.php.

We cannot stress enough, however, that it is important that you get the lump rechecked.

Please let us know how you get on.

Kind regards

Do you have any alternative ideas as to what it might be? The doctor is dead set it is this, but I have googled a thousand images and none similar for this condition....

Hi worried12345

Unfortunately, we wouldn't like to try and guess what the lump could be but do urge you to revisit your doctor. If you don't want to see your original doctor make an appointment with a different one. It may be worthwhile asking the receptionist if there is a doctor that deals with genitalia as a specialism.

Kind regards
