Should I be worried that I might have cancer/ a tumor?

I am 27 years old and recently discovered a lump on my base of my penile shaft. In two weeks it got bigger. Two weeks ago I had blood in my urine and I have a strange white discharge at times. I need to urinate more frequently and I also have pain in my genitals at times. I now struggle to hold back the urine when I have to go on a sudden onset. My penis is also swollen when erect and painful. Please advise what I should do
