I have an isolated skin colored bump that's on my low/mid penis shaft, what does this sound like?

May be...: If its presence is lifelong, painless, and stable, it could be a mole, which requires no active care. If just happening in a not long past, painless, but increase in size, it could be a wart. At times, excision for biopsy is needed for final confirmation to ease the concern.

Penis bump: 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 counsel you for prevention. ...Read more

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

I have tiny bumps under the head of my dick and on the back of my penis shaft is this herpes I had in protected sex 2 months ago?

I have tiny bumps under the head of my dick and on the back of my penis shaft is this herpes I had in protected sex 2 months ago?

Not herpes: This isn't herpes. Herpes causes red bumps, blisters, pimples, or open sores over 1-2 weeks. Anything that looks the same after 1-2 days is never herpes. This might not be abnormal. I'm wondering about pearly penile papules or Fordyce spots. Google both and see how the photos compare with what you have. If any doubt or you're still concerned, see a doctor. ...Read more

Small bump on top of penis shaft. It's just under the skin with a cluster of tiny white dots. No pain or itch. Just noticed it a week ago. No changes.

Here are some. ..: I'm sure what you saw have been there for a long time although you just happened to notice them. Clinically, these tiny white dots are hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which are harmless with no need to treat except their rare recurrent infection/abscess. Not taking a direct look may not diagnose correctly; so, see Doc timely for further doubt. ...Read more

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Probably normal: Every male has "small white bumps" on the penile skin, normal sebaceous glands and hair follicles. If you are sure this is new and/or abnormal, see your doctor or a dermatologist. In the meantime, this description doesn't sound at all like genital warts. And common skin warts don't get transmitted to the genital area, so that's really not something to be concerned about. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a single clear pinkish bump on my penis shaft. 2 doctors told me not to worry about it. 1 said infection. 1 said skin tag. Any guess?

Could be skin tag: Or a wart. You can try this to see--- soak a piece of gauze or cloth in plain white vinegar. Then lay it on the growth for about 3-5 minutes. If it turns the growth white compared to the surrounding skin, then it's a wart caused by hpv and should be treated, as you can infect other people. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Small HPV like bumps on the shaft of my penis, had even prior to sexual activity. Just barely off skin color. Smaller when erect. Any idea? I am 16

Small HPV like bumps on the shaft of my penis, had even prior to sexual activity. Just barely off skin color. Smaller when erect. Any idea? I am 16

Probably not..., but: I assumed you're 16 and virgin. If so, the described lesions may likely be small moles, and its visible relative size may look varying resulting from skin stretch at erection and comparison to the engorged erect penis. So, if they don't hurt you and have no change in their number and configuration, leave them alone. If still in doubt, see expert timely. But ultimate determination relies on biopsy. ...Read more

I have an abrasion on my penis shaft which began with dry skin and turned into a bump under the skin which opened a bit. Concerned about infection etc

Watch and see...: If indeed what you described is just a skin abrasion with subsequent redness, just keep it clean and dry with no need to overuse topical antibiotic cream; it will dry up and heal quickly in 3-5 days in a healthy man. If not as expected, see doctor soon for timely attention to rare nasty infection. ...Read more

Slightly raised, dry irregular shaped bump on skin of penis shaft. Not wart or cancer. It is brownish looking and rough to touch. Approx 2mm diameter.

See in real life: Skin bumps can sometimes be diagnosed via video. A patient can try HealthTap PRIME for a virtual consult (there is a fee). Otherwise, one's primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine the bump. It could still be a wart, even if it doesn't stick out much. It could be an usual mole or a closed comedone. It may be best to get it examined, so that the doctor gets the texture and feel of it. ...Read more

So I've had these skin colored bumps just below the waist line and right before my penis. I also have a couple on my shaft.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe and hard to visualize in words. Rashes of bumps above the the penis may be warts, molluscum (viral), blackheads (comedones), or be folliculitis, which is an infection in the little hair follicles in the skin. Rashes that itch a lot may be allergic reactions and/or skin infections. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to help decide on a diagnosis. ...Read more
