Bump On Shaft Of Penis
Two small hard bump on shaft of penis since last week, still there. I had softer bumps at exact same place before but went away in a day. What to do?
More info needed: It's difficult to judge potential causes from this description. If the "bumps" are superficial, genital warts might be the best bet; or just skin tags. If they seem to be coming up from deeper in the skin, maybe just skin cysts or pimples. Only way to know for sure is to see a doctor or clinic. If there is a national health genitourinary medicine clinic near you, that would be a good choice.
Penis bumps: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention.
I have a tiny (can't be seen without pulling skin)hard bump on shaft of penis. I obsessively check it although it has no other symptoms. Should I worry?
Probably not...: But if you can't help worrying, go get it checked out. You will feel reassured at least.
A guy gets small blister like bumps on shaft of penis once a month in the same area. They pop easily and itch for a week then go away what could it be?
Depends: This could be gentile herpes, though herpes generally shows up as painful ulcers that can come and go. This could also be genital warts, a fungal infection, or something completely benign called pearly penile papules. All the same, you should see your physician during an active outbreak in order to be diagnosed and appropriately treated.
Please see: Please see your dermatologist for evaluation and to discuss treatment options. This way you can get the best treatment. It may be something that needs to be treated.

I have swollen lymph node on groin and small bumps on shaft of penis wich has black dot in centre, also had bumps on scrotum that burst and healing?
Here are some...: What you observed and described most likely represent hyperactive sebaceous glands on penile skin like pimples on face or elsewhere and the infected, burst, and healed sebaceous cysts, These bumps usually require no active care unless being mentally &/or physically bothersome. Of course, it is hard to give 100% right diagnosis without a direct look at them. More? Seek evaluation & counseling.See 1 more doctor answer

Lichen planus: You are describing koebner phenomenon where trauma is the inducer in people prone to have the condition. The most likely diagnosis is lichen planus but psoriasis is a possibility. So rather than becoming celibate, I recommend applying otc Hydrocortisone ointment several hours before and several hours after intercourse and see if that helps.
