Hard Bump On Penis Shaft
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

2 tiny ( less than 1 mm) white bumps on my penis shaft for 3 weeks. Painful and hard when i try to squeeze them. Dont change during 3 weeks. Any idea?
Probably benign: Pearly penile papules? Lichen nitidus is a harmless skin condition that causes small, shiny flesh-colored lumps to appear on your penis. They can also appear on your arms, legs and trunk. The lumps often appear in groups and may look like small warts. Other conditions are possible. See a dermatologist or urologist. ...Read more
If a bump appeared with no symptoms of herpes on a penis shaft. Is now just hard and very small. What could this be? It's barely visible
Near the base of my penis shaft near pubic hair with hair there is a hard bump under 1cm. No pain and it appears to move with the top layer of skin.
Here are some...: What described most likely represents the occurrence of small sebaceous cyst or subcutaneous lipoma, both of which are harmless with no practical need for its removal, if needed for whatever the reason may be, can be done under local aneshesia as ambulatroy procedure. Of course, without a direct look & feel at it, it is still hard to give accurate Dx. So and more? Seek evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

Wart or skin tag: Without seeing that bump, we can only speculate whether it's a benign skin tag or infectious wart or something else. Go see your Family Doc or local health department. Blisters would make me think of herpes while ulcers would make me think of nastier sexually transmitted diseases/infections. If you're engaging in sex, be sure to wrap it up for both your sake each & every time. ...Read more
Had white bump on penis shaft for a few days, came a day after shaving, popped and left blood only, is this normal?
No: The sequence of events does not normally occur, but whether this imports serious consequences only time will tell. Sounds benign, but if recurs or if you are at risk of stds, go and get seen and tested. Suspect this will turn out to be nothing to worry about, but never ever hurts to be sure. ...Read more
May be...: Are the bumps in skin or deep beneath skin and subcutaneous tissue? And do you have bending penis at erection? If in skin, they may be just small sebaceous cysts like pimples; if deep with penile bending at erection, you may have so-called peyronie's disease. For detailing, go to see urologist after preparing the record of the feature and degree of the symptoms with their sequence of events for... ...Read more

I have a small group of tiny bumps on the inner part of my penis shaft, i noticed them a few years ago and they never go away, they don't itch or hurt?
May be HPV: I would recommend you visit a dermatologist. Once men and women become sexually active, HPV becomes a concern. HPV can lead to growths in men (genital warts) and cervical cancer in women. That is why women get a pap smear for surveillance. Go to a dermatologist and get checked and get your partner checked. Your dermatologist can burn these off with liquid nitrogen. Good luck. ...Read more
