I noticed recently a small white bump on my penis, that had no pain or soreness but i felt something underneath the skin. im not sexually active so i thought it was no big deal. Yesterday i woke up and the area was swollen, and looked like a whitehead. Im wondering if i should try to pop the area, or let it go away on its own...
Bump on penis
Perhaps it is a whitehead - you can get them there. Whiteheads are clogged sebaceous glands. Sebaceous glands themselves are often visible in the thin skin of the penis, and look like little whiteheads and should be left alone; but swelling in the area suggests clogging or infection. You could try gentle squeezing but if that does nothing I'd leave it alone.
