    Bump on Penis need help
    An_241208 posted:
    I've had kinda a tiny tiny little cyst on the shaft of my penis looks just like a zit, similar to kinda the under the skin zits you might be on your shoulder except smaller ... its about 3mm by 3mm slightly elevated, I've had all the test for all stds and everything came back negative, that was done in mid Oct, this cycst like bumps has been there since July ... well the other night I decided to pop it ... and I got a needle and popped it (I know bad Idea) well anyway since I popped it 24hours ago, its swelled up like an under the skin zit would. Its a single bump, looks just like a zit and symptons have been exactly like they would if i had popped a zit on my shoulder or back, Could this be herpes? I have recieved BJ and BJ only, and I have gotten hand jobs ... thats all I have done this year. Again appeared in July I guess, I was tested for all stds in oct, everything was neg, I decided to pop it 24hours ago and it has swelled up like an under the skin zit would. Could this be herps and if not ... what is the fastest way to make it subside?

    Herpes does not stay around for 3-4 months. You need to be looked at by a health care provider, no one on the internet can tell you what's going on.

    Should clairfy, the symptoms opf herpes does not last for 3-4 months at a time. Herpes of course stays with you forever, but the outbreaks only last 1-2 weeks at most.
