i was talking to a friend and they told me that they have a small, red bump on their penis and they are concerened about what it might be. it looks like a pimple so is it possible that it is only a pimple or is there something more serious to be worried about. i've read about HPV and Herpes and the bump does not appear to resemble either one of those. please help!

It could be a pimple. You can get acne there. I did when I was an adolescent. It could be an ingrown hair or infected hair folicle. The thing is, we are not doctors and, even if we were, we couldn't offer a diagnosis over the internet. If it doesn't clear up in a week or so, see a doctor to make sure.
