I had the exact same thing when I was around 20.
It's not cancer. It's not a tumor. It would have spread by now and you'd be sick with other symptoms.
It's not genital warts. These are very discomforting (you would have gone to a doc by now if it was this).
You have a sebaceous cyst.
It feels like a tiny, little, hard, white ball under the skin on your shaft right? It's not actually "hooked into" the shaft (your boner). It kinda
just floats under the skin, right? More attached to the skin then the "bone" itself, right?
You can actually grab it and roll it between your fingertips, right?
It's a cyst, dude. Do you drink lots of soft drinks or coffee with caffeine? This causes that kind of cyst.
I went to a general surgeon. Walked in his office. Dropped my drawers. "Oh, it's a cyst. No biggie." He numbed my pecker with a needle (ouch for a
second). Then cut a tiny slit and cut it out. It was like getting a haircut, that simple. Two stitches. He told me, "Did you know the skin on the
penis heals faster than the skin anywhere else on your body?" I told him I didn't know that. Well, it was done years back and I have no idea where
it really was. There is no visible scar at all. The penis heals wonderfully.
Don't freak. I'll bet you any amount of money it's a cyst. Get it cut out, it's no big deal.
ADVICE: Try not to get erect with stitches on your penis. It's not fun at all.
