i am 20 years old, smoker, although ive cut back to maybe 3-5 cigarettes a week.
I have had a problem with boils on my buttox and thighs. ive seen a dr for them. I have had an ingrown/boil on my penis once before, that have popped and cleared up no scaring or anything..
BUT, i recently got one, it is near the base of my penis, that wouldnt come to a head. i squeezed it quite a bit, and it did release some pus. its been there for about 2 and a half weeks. a few days after the boil/lump popped up there was pain when masturbating at the base of my penis, now the area is swollen, where it is swollen i feel like there is a hard vein or tube or something, thats painful to the touch, my groin is also painful to the touch on the right side. I have not had sexual contact in about 8 months. Im nervous, and under my parents insurance, and dont really want to talk to them about this to go to the doctor.
