Possible STD

05/19/2003

Question:

I am a 17 year old male who has engaged in sexual intercourse twice in my life, both times wearing a condom. about a week and a half after the second expeirence, i noticed a small bump on the lower shaft of my penis, it isn`t hard, is not an open sore and does not look like a cold sore. Could this be something other than an STD? there is no discharge from my penis or any kind of pain. I am scared to go to the doctor yet but i plan to soon, any information would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:

I am afraid that the only way you can get an answer about your ailment is by seeing a physician.
