What could cause a lump on the penis that causes pain during an erection?

Doctor's Answers (2)

There are several causes for this and it has to do with the following:
 
1.  The site of the lump (which part of the penis)
2.  The size of the lump
3.  The duration the lump has been present 
4.  Whether any deformities are present
 
The common cause of a lump under the skin with no ulceration is Peyronie's disease. This is a rare condition best diagnosed by a Urologist.  However, even a cancer can cause a lump.
 
It is strongly advise that the person who has this problem to see a Urologist for a consultation and to sort out the diagnosis.

Men in the acute phase of Peyronie's disease almost always present with painful erections and discovery of a new lump on the penis. Men with Peyronie's disease often develop penile curvature and loss of penile length. Seeking early attendance with a urologist is definitely recommended.
