I have what I have believed to be a cyst on my penis for about 2 years now. It has had no problems what so ever, just been there. I am sexually active and do not believe its an STD, because i've had it for longer than i've been having sex. Here recently, it swelled up to about 5-6 times it's original size. It has been about 2mm in diameter and now its about 15mm in diameter. Its extremely red and swollen. It isnt the prettiest sight in the world either. It hurts really bad when anything touches it, and everything i've read so far has told me to not touch it, and the swelling should go down as its from somthing rubbing against it.. I'm still confused to why its been 2 years and it just now swelled up. But it seems to have attached itself to all 15mm of skin that its touching and isnt movable at all. Like I said, I have read not to touch it and to leave it alone, but it hangs to the left and there is no way from keeping it from touching my clothing or leg. Whenever I walk it is extrememly painful. What do you suggest? I've tried neosporin, ice, and heat. None of which have worked. All this happened prettymuch overnight and I have no clue why. I'm 15.. Please post all possible remedies and what not, as this thing hurts like hell!-Thanks in advance - Chris
go to the doctors
When i was younger, i had a cyst in my nutsack. Just go to the doctors.. you really dont wanna just leave it. Yeah its kind of embarrasing having a group of people stand round and grope you (i was only a kid so i just found it really funny).
I had to have an operation to remove it, but trust me thats a damn sight easier than leaving it to swell up.
