Question: Penile Papules?
|dr.roberto - Sat Nov 19, 2005 7:18 pm||
I was just wondering if you could give me some information on what penile papules actually are, and are there any methods to remove them? thanks

If your question refers to pearly penile papules, these are flesh-coloured lesions arranged in two to three rows which run around the circumference of the corona of the glans penis. They typically appear in the 20s and 30s of age.
These papules are not infectious and no treatment is required. They may sometimes be mistaken for warts.
