Several weeks ago I noticed a bulge at the base of my penis, kind of above the testicles. It is like an extension of the penis (most noticeable when erect), but I don't recall it being so prominent before.
It is also possible that the bottom side of the penis is always slightly firmer than it used to be, it never seems to soften quite as much anymore.
I first noticed it several weeks ago, around when I first had sex. It has remained the same and painless.
I am extremely reluctant to go to the doctor because I have checked things like this before and they said it was normal and I'm sick of this stuff. Any advice much appreciated.
