Dear member! Thank you for choosing health care magic ! Based on your description they could be pearly penile papules.These small papules are best described as embryological remnants. As you said they are usually located around the circumference of the base of the glans penis. They are multiple in number and small (about 1-3mm).They may be mistaken for warts, are not infectious (not an STD), and not related to personal hygiene.They require no treatment. Some patients however, may request therapy to alleviate anxiety . You cannot rule out being seen by a doctor. There is no replacement to a direct clinical examination. If the doctor feels that he needs to confirm the diagnosis a biopsy may be made which would be definitive. That would ultimately cure the problem and save you the trouble it can cause you.

this has happened periodically thru-out my life starting at about 17, it began again about a week ago again , i'm 40, when i urinate, it becomes painfull and i bleed (the tip of the penis) the blood is at the start of my urination, so it's at the beginning of my urination, it's not an internal problem but in the tip of the penis. Why does this happen? it bleeds for 2-3 days then stops, then i'm okay, but it does this maybe 2-3 times a year, Why?

I'm a heterosexual male, even if i have a long lovemaking session (60-90 minutes) with a women it seems like the tip can't take the punishment, i have started bleeding during sex, usually if i'm making love doggie-style, it's extremely vulnerable. I'm serious this is not a joke. Have you heard of anything like this?
