Doctor can evaluate: For bumps on the penis, a primary care doctor, a urologist, or a dermatologist can evaluate to see what they might be. Bumps can be trapped skin cells, trapped oily secretions, normal features, warts from HPV, etc... A close examination should be able to tell if there is a problem or not. Normal penis bumps do not bleed unless torn. Sometimes, a visit to more than one doctor is needed.
