Tiny white bumps on scrotum and base of penis. Theirs a lot of them and are causimg me much stress. Is there any way to get rid of them?
OK, but depends...:
What you have may be just the common occurrence of sebaceous cysts. If so, leave them alone if there is no infection or discomfort. However, if you're mentally bothered by their presence, surgical removal is possible, but make sure to get it done by knowledgeable and skillful surgeon; otherwise, recurrence may happen.
See a urologist if in doubt.
