Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
Could be any number of problems from infected hair to a cyst or even something dangerous. You need to see a doctor and fast if it is growing that rapidly.

Go to the doctor for sure. But if it is just some sort of skin irritation, you should use a penis health creme. These cremes are made specifically for the penis skin and treat all sorts of issues down there. It might help you out. Good luck.
