Im a man in my 27s, i never had a sexual behavior before, and I always clean my penis during bath. Few months ago i noticed there is a small granule in middle of my penis. No feeling when pressure it so i decided to let it recover itself. Recently i found it become bigger and became acne (white in surface). It will pain when give slight pressure to it, but no feeling when i leave it.
May i know in this case should i leave it or better go to a clinic for advise?
