Found a kind of a lump on my penis today it's the size of a small berry! Not sure if should go to doctors or wait a week or so to see if it goes away because think it may be a cut infected but not sure. What should I do? Can take a pic of the lump only if helps any?
This sounds like something you should see your health care provider about. If it does not reduce in size or go away within a day or so, I'd go ahead and call your doctor (especially since it may take a few days or a week for you to get in to be seen anyway). If it gets any larger, becomes red, irritated, hurts, feels hot to the touch, or starts seeping anything (or if you notice any other weird symptoms going on with your body), call your doctor immediately. If this is some type of an infection, you don't want it getting out of control.
Your doctor may be able to tell you how to treat this over the phone. Or, worst case, you make an appointment and if it ends up going away, you can simply cancel your appointment. But this is not something that anybody can diagnose over the internet, it needs to be seen by a real medical professional.
