Once in a while I get this small bump on

Patient

Q: Once in a while I get this small bump on my penis that eventually grows and fills with puss. Its gone within like 5 days. Is it a sabaceous cyst?

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

The bump on the penis which is recurrent, small, goes within 5 days and comes again is most probably a small sebaceous cyst. The automatic opening or the popping is not removing the internal lining of the cyst wall.
If this recurs again, consult a Dermatologist or a Surgeon and get the whole cyst removed.

I hope this answer helps you.
