I had a small bump on the base of my penis

Patient : I had a small bump on the base of my penis that I could kind of move around, sort of like a ball. A couple of days later it formed a yellowish white head. It later popped and some yellowish white stuff came out. It left a crader shaped bump and has a gotten a little better after a couple of days, mainly just getting smaller. What could that be.
