Bumps on the private parts. Anything to worry?

My partner as informed me she has 2 bumps on her private area and it just got me thinking, I have bumps on my penis but I've had them since I was 13 and haven't had sexual intercourse until I was 17 so I was just wondering if you knew anything about these or do I need to do anything? They don't give me discomfort or look like anything on the net?

Urologist 's  Response
Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Sebaceous cysts over shaft of the penis since a long time.

However this can be confirmed only on clinical examination .Please consult qualified General Surgeon or Urologist for clinical assessment and further treatment.

You may need to get them excised in Toto under local anaesthesia.

I am a 24 year old female and about 4 months ago i saw a small bump near my pee hole. It soon formed a white head . I am worried and confused. Any ideas on what this could be? I do shave my private parts but i don t think that area grows hair so i m doubting it could be an ingrown..

Hello I m 13 years old and a female ever since I ve gone through puberty I ve gotten these bumps under my skin around my inner thighs,armpits, and private parts a few months ago I found a sharp pain through my left armpit and when I looked at it it was a bump under the skin it was red and big and then a few weeks later I take a shower and just for the heck of it I check to see if its gone away but no instead a pile of my skin became dead and fell right off of the head of the bump then it didn t hurt but I was very worried I could see at least 2/3 layers of my surface skin had been removed and looked like a crater with my skin inside of it pure red/pink now there s a foul nasty smell and the skin around the hole is now turned to a white/gray color the smell is even worse and it hurts so much more now when I lift my armpit everyone from 5 ft away from me can smell the nasty hole please help I m worried this might kill me

I have a 3 dia sebaceous cyst on my hip that is too deep to reach with a needle. I tried squeezing it and felt it rupture under the skin and change shape, but it did not drain from the surface. No obvious sign of infection. Is it okay to leave it alone as long as it doesn t seem infected?
