I have what seemed to be a pimple on my


Q: I have what seemed to be a pimple on my penis on the base of the under side of the shaft and I kept popping it but it came back. So then I assumed it was and ingrown hair but it has been there for a while. And today I looked at it after a shower and I saw that there was an empty center. The growth itself was raised about 1/3 cm and in the center there was nothing? I'm confused on what this could be and I am a Virgin so I do not believe it is a STI but I am aware that Virginia can get them. So my question is, what could this be?
