Epidermoid cyst?

Customer Question

Hello there, I am a 17 year old male. Earlier this month I noticed a small bump on the shaft of my penis which I initially assumed was harmless and would go away possibly after a few days. As this bump did not go away I began to do some research into what it could be and I now believe that it may be an epidermoid cyst (based on articles and pictures I have seen online). I have also read that cyst removal is not covered by the NHS and would like some advice on how to deal with it please. Thank you!
