Brief Answer:
Pearly penile papules

Detailed Answer:
I have seen the photographs you have uploaded. In one of the photograph I can see tiny red coloured round bumps around the coronal margin of the glans. These are pearly penile papules which is a normal variant present in upto 10- 50 percent of the males. They are harmless and require no treatment but if they are causing you psychological distress you can consider going for cryotherapy, electrosurgery or laser treatment.
I hope to have answered your query.
Wish you good luck.

Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
I don't think you have to worry about them as according to your history and symptoms they don't seem to be something important. Just keep a watch on them; if their number or size increases or they cause any symptoms we can consider testing for them probably by doing a biopsy. For the time being you don't have to take stress about them.

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
