User :   hello. I have tonight only just noticed around 2 - 4 tiny white spots/bumps (not really raised) under the skin on the inside of my penis either side of the skin that attaches your penis to your foreskin, right in corner. Roughly size of a granule of sugar each. Saw couple of things on forums. Not much apart from tyson's glands. Can you advise at all?

Apologies, not too knowledgable on medical terms/names?
