Bumps at the base of penis that seem to be emerging from hair, no pain, ones without hair have scabbed on popping. Alarming?

Hi Dr. Batra, I recently noticed this morning that I have small, skin colored bumps near the base of my penis . They are not painful, and most of them look like hair are coming from them, but a couple on the top of the shaft did not, and when I tried to pop them with my finger nails , a small amount of fluid/blood-looking substance came out. The ones near the hair follicles look the same as earlier today, but the two small ones with no hair that I tried to pop are now small scabs. Is this anything to be worried about?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have sebaceous cysts near base of the penis.
The skin near the base of the penis and scrotum is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
