Disonest boyfriend.: Many possibilities. E.g. the bumps may be infectious disease or infectious warts. If you do not have an honest boyfriend, how are you ever going to trust him and stay well. Recommend you re-evaluate your friend- ship and move on to a healthier relationship. Meanwhile get a check up to be sure you are OK.

Other std's plus: This could be something as simple as inflammation of the hair follicle roots. It could be a wart producing strain of HPV that he could give to you (they can get large).It could also be something else. When he gets to the point he cares, he can have it looked at to find out what it is & if it can/needs to be treated.

If I have a weird looking bump on my penis since I was a kid, I cant recall exactly but could be since birth, can I assume its not an STD?

Yes you can: You may want to ask your doctor what it is, so that you will know yourself what it is. Then you can have it documented in your medical records as a whatever your PCP determines the bump to be or not be/amelanotic mole or nevus?

I have a weird ring like bump on my penis shaft, could the scar line be too weird cosmetically? Afraid about STD..

I have a weird ring like bump on my penis shaft, could the scar line be too weird cosmetically? Afraid about STD..

Ring-like bump: This needs to be evaluated by your doctor. Different causes have to be ruled in or out which depends on what the penis was exposed to before this bump appeared. Sure, STI or STD will be part of the evaluation by your doctor. Avoid any sexual contact right now until your doctor says you are clear from any STIs or the bump resolves.

I have little bumps under the head of my penis I don't know what they are but it looks really weird I have never had this before. What should I do?

I have little bumps under the head of my penis I don't know what they are but it looks really weird I have never had this before. What should I do?

Here are some. ..: What you recently noticed & described most likely represent pearly penile papules right next to frenulum in pairs, which are similar to those on the dorsal aspect of the corona of glans penis, has existed lifelong until your recent notice to them, & require no Rx. Of course, without a direct look, it's hard to give an accurate Dx. So, see urologist timely if still in doubt. Best wish. ..

Have small little bumps on my penis?

Follicles: So do most boys and men. This is usually small hair follicles. If it is not that, then we would begin to consider that these may be warts.

Get checked: One man in 100 is the lucky owner of "pearly penile papules", a row of bumps along the corona on the back of the gland / head. They are a harmless novelty. Or you may be describing warts, which need to be treated. Good luck.

Bumps around the penis, what does this mean?

Bumps around the penis, what does this mean?

Where are they?: Several percent of men are the fortunate owners of "pearly papules" forming a ring around the corona. If for some reason you don't like them, they are easily removed with a laser. All men have sebaceous glands and hair follicles making bumps especially along the bottom. Warts are common nowadays and can be removed easily enough. Show your physician.
