Uncomfortable bump on my penis, been there for months


Q: There is a bump on my penis shaft, it first appeared while I was sexually active, 10 months ago. It was painful(uncomfortable) at the time, but then it stopped giving me trouble, after I stopped having sexual relationship. It was still there but it didnt get in my way, and I am not sure if it hurt during that time. But now it started hurting again, it is barely visible, it is not tall, its just a little raised, and after sex, it gets irritated, and on the central part, the sensitive skin gets "peeled", kind of, and it gets a bit more bloody redish, but there is no real blood coming out of it. What could this be?
