I Am A Healthy 28 Year Male. I Am A Virgin. I have three small pinhead sized bumps on my foreskin. My urologist called them papules or Fordyce spots. I'm worried because one has started taking on a dark pigment. See pics. Is there anything that looks concerning? Cancer, wart etc. Due to my limited and lack of sexual history I don't think that's an option. But I am a worrier so please help me put my mind at ease. Thank you.

Hi there ~

The spots do not seem to be concerning. I reassure you that they are not even Fordyce spots and the dark pigmentation is the process of healing as it seems like you have had a small abrasion under the mucosa. It is definitely not concerning for cancer or warts. It is great that you have a clean sexual history. Please be reassured that there is nothing concerning in your case and with time you will become better.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
