over the last few days ihave noticed slight swelling on my foreskin and i don't have much of it, there is also a small sort of lump, its only a bit painful to touch and its not a problem for me to masturbate or do anything differently, should ibe concerned?

Dear An,

Typically, foreskin is a common area for inflammation and swelling. I would try icing the area and reducing friction for 2 days. If that does not help, I would suggest seeing your doctor.

I hope that helps

When I woke up this morning there was some slight discharge from the lump but the swelling had gone down, how about now?
