What causes bumps on penis?

I have some wierd bumps on my penis on one side. They are not red and do not hurt and are not hard. I think I may have psyched myslef out with all the pictures online I thought somehow it may be Herpes but i haven t had sexual ckntact with anyone except my wife. Only thing out of the ordinary is I recieved a massage in TX for shoulder pain but the place looked a little shady and i was offered sexual favors.

thanks for writing to HCM;

No; there is nothing to worry about this and this is not Herpes...

Hi, If I were your treating Doctor for this case of BUMPS ON PENIS, I would come up with three possibilities, these include:

1. benign and simple conditions like skin tag/papilloma, para-urethral cyst, lipoma or neurofibroma or dermatofibroma; there is nothing to worry about these!
     
2. some sebaceous cyst or some other cysts

3. resolved old infection, chronic folliculitis or some benign stromal nodule!

I suggest you to go for clinical assessment and if necessary FNAC test for confirmation and to relieve your concerns!

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Wishing you good health.
