this is an area of fibrosis that developed on the scar of the split
is this still painful when squeezed?
yes always had tight foreskin lump shows up even more when I pull skin back
ok i understand
what is your age?
there are two things that you can do
the first is to wait for 6 months from the time of tear, that is, frm christmas or till around June
usually such post-tear lumps will resolve in 6 months
so hopefully the lump will be gone by then
meanwhile you will need to massage gently but firmly daily with a cream such as vaseline
massage should be soft enough not to cause mucosal abrasion
but firm pressure should be there
this will help the lump to resolve
you will need to wait till 6 months for this
sometimes upto 8 months
the second option and which I would recommend is go for circumcision directly
the fact that you had a foreskin tear and that you have always had a tight foreskin, and now this lump, all this suggests that you need circumcision
you should go for this directly
it will help you get rid of the problem once and for all
the fact that you had a tear suggests that your foreskin is indeed too tight
there is no need for you to suffer from this
the second option is the one I would personally recommend
but of course it is really upto you to make that decision
do you have any further questions?
