Bump On Penis What Could It Be


Frequently Asked Questions

    How to remove white bumps on penis shaft?
    So I have these white bumps on my penis. They were just little in population, but seem like they're growing heavily. It can't be a std because no one in my family has one and im a virgin. I cleanse everyday very well. How can i remove these please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry about them, it's a common misconception for an STD, but all men have them.
      Circumsised men lose them due to friction of underwear, pants, etc. Uncircumcised men should not worry about them as they are merely parts of the penis with more sensitive nerves.

    • ANSWER:
      Do you have bed bugs? Because I know they leave a bump like that when they bite you. I would go to the doctor and ask your parents (preferably your mother) what they did before you were born.

    What does it meen if you have a couple of white bumps by your penis?
    Well I have never seen thoes there befour. I just shaved and saw 3 bumps by my penis . But I have protected sex allways so. What is it?

    • ANSWER:
      Small bumps on the penis can be a few things. Little white bumps on the shaft of the penis that don't hurt and are not red or swollen may be pimples or ingrown hairs. These are common and they're nothing to worry about. Another condition that's normal and no cause for concern is pearly penile papules. These whitish bumps appear on the glans (head) of the penis or along the edge of the glans in many guys. If you are or have been sexually active, bumps on the penis may be signs of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Painful blisters, bumps, or ulcers may be herpes. Another STD, genital warts (HPV) can show up as bumps on the penis. Sometimes these are irregular in shape or even barely seen, and they're not painful. Some other STDs, like syphilis, also can show up as painless ulcers on the penis. Although the bumps associated with STDs may not be painful, they could put your health and your partner's health at risk if they are not treated quickly and properly. Of course, the skin on the penis — like the skin anywhere else on a person's body — can get irritated. And it's often hard to distinguish normal bumps from those caused by an STD. So the only way to really know what your bumps are is to be examined by a doctor.

    What are these small white bumps on my penis and scrotum?
    I'm a 15 year old male virgin, and a little over a year ago, i noticed these small white bumps under my penis, on the base. I investigated further and realized i had small white bumps all over my scrotum as well. Most of these bumps have pubic hair growing on them but some, like the ones on the penis itself, do not. My questions are: What are they? Should I be concerned? What can i do to make them go away, if anything? Will they get worse?
    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Hair follicles, some with, some without hair; also oil glands. Normal, your skin on your penis is very thin, nearly transparent, which is why you can see your hair follicles and oil glands and lots of veins as well. You have these same "bumps" under skin all over your body, but elsewhere you have much thicker skin. You don't want to do anything to them, don't want to make them go away. Part of your normal body dude.

    • ANSWER:

    What do you do when you have a bump like on your penis?
    My husband has a pimple like bump on his penis and it hurts and itches. He popped it and it still hurts and itches. What does it mean? We haven't had sex in months. I told him maybe it's just a pimple and he just needs to keep his penis clean or he is cheating on me and he needs to go get tested. What do you think it is and what can he do about it?

    • ANSWER:
      Testing would be a good first step just so you know for sure that your husband hasn't been stepping out. It would also be good because to get tested a Dr. would have to look at this, and maybe it's really something simple. Either way, you'll stop feeling worried.

      Good luck!

    Why do I have small white bumps on my penis?
    I have small white bumps on my penis. I don't know what they are. I have a shower everyday and masterbate once a week. I am 14 and I don't have the confidence to tell my parents or a doctor. I am still a virgen only had one gf but onlyever pecked on the cheek so it couldn't have been that. Cheers.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry...probably just acne or an irritation. I've had them before and it wasn't because of an infection. If they get big, very carefully (and I do mean VERY carefully) prick them with a sharp needle and "pop" them like a zit.

      Or ignore them....they'll probably go away, but it does sound like acne.

    How do i know if i have a penis wart?
    A day ago i noticed a tiny raised bump on my penis shaft that looked like a pluged pore or pimple. I pinched it and nothing came out but it got irritated. Its less than a centimeter in size. I had sex recently but used a condom so i dont know how i could have gotten it. It hasnt gotten any bigger and it is skin color and doesn't hurt or itch at all. What is it?

    • ANSWER:
      It's probably just a harmless bump on your penis.

      Genital warts are an STD/STI, but there are generally lots of them, and they are small and whitish, not the same as your skin tone. This has never happened to me before, but I doubt it's an STD of any sort, especially if you always use condoms. Just leave it alone for a while and it should go away, or at least not cause you any harm.

    I have these wierd bumps on my penis and ive never had sex?

    Is it normal for a penis to get irrated after sex?
    I was getting ready to have sex with my husband when i noticed red bumps on his penis. I asked what is that from he said because 4days ago when we had sex he didn't rinse it well enough but this has never happened before. We've been married 5years now and have a 4year old son together. Should I be worried?

    • ANSWER:
      It's not exactly normal, but it can be caused by intercourse. A change in the consistency or pH of your natural lubrication can cause irritation. So can dry/vigorous masturbation. The skin on a man's penis is as vulnerable to irritation and tearing as the skin on a woman's outer labia. (learned this from recent experience and am having my pH tested in the next couple days)

      However, to be safe, you and your husband both should be tested for Herpes simplex and Human papilloma viruses. Both can lie dormant for a few years before showing up. Additionally, if either of you ever had the Chicken Pox, that version of the Herpes simplex virus is in your (or his) system already.

      My bets are on the irritation part.

    What is this small bump on the shaft of my penis?
    I am 20 years old, and currently not sexually active. The bump on my penis is on the right side of the shaft. It is painless, and feels like a grain of rice (and is about the same size of one). It is not attached to the penis, and it is under the skin. I have no other symptoms, and am not completely worried. I'd go to the doctor when the lump either becomes infected, grows, or remains for extended amounts of time. If possible, how can I get rid of this thing?

    • ANSWER:
      Pearly penile papules are raised bumps of somewhat paler color around the base of the glans and are normal.

      Fordyce's spots are small, raised, yellowish-white spots 1–2 mm in diameter that may appear on the penis.

      Sebaceous prominences are raised bumps similar to Fordyce's spots on the shaft of the penis, located at the sebaceous glands and are normal.

      HOWEVERRRR, if it looks like a white head (zit), you should pop it, its just an ingrown hair

    What are these bumps on my boyfriend's penis?
    My boyfriend has these wart like bumps on his penis, but they don't look like herpes, they look like normal warts and don't hurt. Is this just the texture of the skin, or are they regular skin warts?

    • ANSWER:
      Warts are generally specific to certain areas of the body, so if he has warts on his penis then he more than likely has HPV (Human Papillomavirus). You both should get checked for STD since there are some strains that can cause cervical cancer in women. Condoms will do very little since he may have them on the base of his penis that could touch your skin directly, infecting you.

      Hopefully is is not Genital warts, but I would google some pics to see if they match what your boyfriend has.

    What are these strange red bumps around the base of and on my penis?
    About a month ago I had sex with a prostitute in Las Vegas. I forgot to use a condom and now I'm starting to see these small weird bumps on my penis. Some are painful to press on like a zit. What do you think this is? What should I tell the next prostitute I'm going to have sex with?

    • ANSWER:
      Well I went to a prostitute too and also got red bumps. I went back to her and she said that it was nothing and that I shouldn't worry about them.

      I then showed my uncle Robby a week or two ago and he said that they look like an insect has implanted larva into me. He also has these bumps around his anus.
      So all in all, there probably isn't too much to worry about since the working girl said what she did, and if its larva then your immune system will just kill it off.
      Tell the next prostitute that it was for your play and had an allergic reaction to makeup.

    How do i get rid of the Herpes on my penis?
    I got the little bumps on my penis and my teacher was talking about herpes and he said that herpes can be on a penis and there are little bumps and stuff. Then i surfed the internet i found out that they can be dangerous.

    I am only 15 years old. What should i do?

    Please help
    But it does itch and by sexual intercourse does masterbating count (i did masterbate like everyday)

    • ANSWER:
      If you are not sexually active (haven't had oral sex or sexual intercourse yet) then this is most likely not herpes. Herpes also causes some painful symptoms like itching, burning and or tingling around where the bumps are. You can get rid of the out breaks but not the virus that causes them. Herpes is not dangerous it's painful but not life threatening.
      If you think you have herpes then you should have a doctor test the bumps for herpes.

      But whatever you do, don't use Listerine.

    What are the red bumps right below the head of my penis?
    I'm 13 and I have red bumps like right before the head of the penis. I tried looking this up but it just says it's a transmitted disease, But I never had sex. Why are there red bumps on my penis?

    • ANSWER:
      This is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

      These are actually sweat glands that keep your penis clean by letting out natural cleansing oils and protectors which protect the natural PH balance of your skin.They are also responsible for the smell of your penis haha. They are larger on your penis than any other part of your body (except perhaps the pores on your face depending on age) as the penis carries more bacteria than other parts of your body.

      They are basically the same and do the same job as the pores you have all over your body.They just protect your natural PH balance.

    What are these three small spots on my penis?
    They are very small. 1 is more colored than the other two, and it seems like the middle one is fading away? I have never had sex, and I wash my hands before and after masturbation. I have no idea if it's nothing major and will go away, or if not having sex matters? I'm afraid to go to the doctor. I'm not a dirty person. I'm hoping they are just bruises/marks from masturbation. They aren't bumps, and my penis doesn't bother me or itch.

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing to worry about could be an number of harmless things.

    I have very small skin colored bumps on my penis?
    When i was in the 6th grade i started masturbating. After awhile i started getting these small bumps on my penis, they are very very small. They dint itch or hurt but im 18 now and i still have them and i want them to go away. I know it cant be herpes because i didn't do anything sexually with a girl until i was 15 and didn't have sex until i was 17. I never asked my doctor because i was always to embarrassed. Does anyone have a clue?

    • ANSWER:
      Those bumps are where hair will begin to grow. Same thing happened to me when I was your age. In a few years you will have pubic hair comming out of them. By the time i was tweny my penis was totally covered in hair, now i have to shave it everyday, just like shaving your face. Your penis will most likely shrink 2-4 inches because the testostorone goes into creating your hairs. Just dont tell any girls, it kind of freaks them out until they see it.

    What are these bumps on my penis?
    For the last 4 months or so, I have had these bumps on my penis. They sort of look like pimple or something. They are located on the shaft of my penis and i have 1 on the pubic area.

Can someone tell me if I should be worried about this. They don't itch or hurt and I don't have a problem urinating.

    I have a tiny rough bump under the top of my penis and it irritates me. Help?
    I am not sure if it is the product of that ruddy circumcision process, but there is a small pink bump below my penis. I notice it when I masturbate and it irritates my hand. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it? I'm currently regrowing my foreskin, so maybe that will fix it, but I want to be sure. It really is irritating. It has no freakish color to it or anything and it seems to be full of nerves.

    • ANSWER:
      This does sound like HPV, or genital warts. I would suggest getting tested for the virus, and if positive, to get a natural genital warts treatment as soon as possible.

    Why do my balls and the base of my penis itch after sex?
    I was wearing a latex condom, but my balls and the base of my penis seem to itch. My sex partner has no STD's and I have no red rashes or bumps around my penis. Could it be that I am allergic to the latex?
    I just want to know so It doesnt happen again.

    • ANSWER:
      It is either the latex- try wearing latex gloves and see if your hands itch. Or your
      partner may have a yeast infection- a mild one- this is from antibiotics use killing
      the gut flora. They need to do a monostat treatment and start a probiotic once a day
      for a couple months to re do the gut flora and stop eating sugar which yeast live on.

    How do i get rid of razor bumps on my penis?
    i have these bumps on my penis and everytime i shave they get worst how do i get rid of them asap please help

    • ANSWER:
      If you feel better with your equipment groomed, I suggest that you use a comb and scissors, leaving enough hair to start bending over. One to one and half inches is fine. You won't run this problem after.

      When you reach the age of being married, my concern for a shaved equipment dude is that your wife would feel like she was with a bare skin pre-puberty child.
