I don't know if I have an STD?? Presumed lymphocele popped this morning and looks like a sore

Posted , 4 users are following.

(18 m) I had sex for the first time two weeks ago with someone that I know for a fact is clean since she got tested right before we did it and was clean. Two days ago I had this lump on my penis before I was going to sleep, looked it up and concluded that it was a lymphocele since i had an erection that began to hurt against my pants and I waited it out while i was laying down hours earlier. This morning I found that the tip of it was growing and it became more sensitive, as of now i pull my pants down and it popped without my knowing, i cleaned the discharge off and put disinfectant on it. I assumed maybe it was a hair follicle that swelled up since there was one in the middle of the crater. I pulled it, squeezed it, some blood came out but not discharge that i was expecting, only some blood. It hasn't shrunk in size, it doesn't hurt but I'm extremely concerned I might have something? I'm gonna get checked tomorrow but I can't stop thinking about it and I need some input.

    im afraid that looks like a herpes ulcer. if your partner was tested she probably wasnt tested for herpes. when you go for standard std testing they dont usually test for herpes unless you ask or have symptoms. its possible she wasnt. i could be wrong but that doesnt look like a lymphocele either.

    Might just be an infected hair follicle that is made worse because you have picked at it. I know how easy it is for your mind to go straight to the worst case, and Dr Google doesn't help. Just see your doctor, get it swabbed and try to relax.

    Let us know the outcome if you're comfortable.

    All the best
