What do red bumps on penis shaft indicate?

Hello,

Conditions like genital wart and STD has to be ruled out.
Consult a dermatologist and get evaluated. If there is a diagnostic confusion a biopsy may be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
