Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as repeated occurrence of Sebaceous cysts over shaft of the penis.

The penile skin 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.
Ensure to clean your genitals with warm water twice daily to prevent the recurrence.
Dr.Patil.
