skin bumps on shaft
hihi25 posted:
Recently there have been almost bump looking on the shaft of my penis almost like where hair would have been but in places where hair does not grow. Both me and my G/F have been checked for STDS and are clear and the skin does not hurt and everything else is normal. what could it be?
counterso responded:
There are many skin bumps that occur on your penis for a number of reasons. It doesn't sound abnormal at all from your brief description. Don't squeeze it. It will probably go away by itself. It's not an STD. More likely it's just a sebaceous cyst or some other kind of spot. Leave it alone.

Only if it continues to get bigger or becomes painful would you need to see a urologist/doctor.

It's good that you pay attention to changes in your body, but in this case, it's nothing to worry about.
hihi25 replied to counterso's response:
thanks you very much, the bumps just look like dry skin or where follicles would be, nothing as changed or got worse. thanks again
