In brief: Many

There are many causes of lesions on the penis, many are benign or caused by sexually transmitted disease.
These include papilloma (sometimes referred to as pearly penile papules), condyloma (genital warts caused by hpv), or genital herpes (caused by hsv). However, any penile lesion should be examined by a medical healthcare provider to ensure proper treatment.
