Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.
You are just 21 years. If you can furnish more details about these lesions we can discuss more.
1. How long you are having this?
2. Are you sexually active?
3. Any oral sex?
4. Is there any itching?
It could be due to Balanitis (inflammation of Glans penis) due to various causes. If you can upload the picture of the same it will be useful to arrive at a diagnosis.
It could not be anything serious. Not to worry.
