Brief Answer:
It is not late to get circumcised.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have
extra foreskin and small bumps on glans of the penis and you want to get circumcised.

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem .
1) Are you able to retract your foreskin over glans penis?

Normally circumcision is advised if one is unable to retract foreskin (what is called as Phimosis).

If you have Phimosis you can certainly go ahead and get circumcised now. Age is no bar for circumcision .If indicated one can get it done at any age .

The white pimple like spots seen on glans can be white beads of smegma.

In absence of any symptoms you need worry about them at all.

Ensure to clean your genitals with warm water twice daily.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
You do not need to remove them.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.
White spots that you are worried about are mostly temporary and may be due to infection of the glans (Ballanitis) and do not need to be removed.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily and topical antibiotic ointment like Neosporin to be applied locally twice daily.

You just need to ensure to clean your genitals with warm water.

Thanks and Regards.
