Genital bumps: It is likely that the small white bumps on the penis are what is know as Fordyce spots. They are benign and are not dangerous. The bumps on the scrotum may be sebaceous cysts, which are common. They are not dangerous unless they become infected. If you are worried about infection or want to be certain about the diagnosis, see a urologist
