Resolved Question:

Hi there.. I have a spot on the base of the shaft of my penis. Slightly hurts when touched, it looks as if there is a yellowish substance in the centre of the spot - seems impossible to pop? looks like its getting bigger.. not sure if i should worry or not? I leave for holiday tomorrow for 4 weeks.. Can this be left until I get back?

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.

This sounds to me like it may be an infected fluid collection called an abscess. If you're leaving for four weeks, you should definitely have this looked at by your doctor to see if it needs to be drained. If it is small enough, you can probably be placed on some antibiotics to see if it will go away with antibiotic therapy. But I would not leave without having this look that. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
