Question: Bumps near base of penis, small bumps on penis and testicles


 aloos - Thu Mar 13, 2008 6:13 pm

I have had problems with this for quite a while, at first thought must have been puberty but now I have grown concerned.

A while back I had a red bump that went away within maybe a couple weeks. Now I have another that occurred over night. There is also very small bumps on testicles and on penis. The large bump is located near base and gives off an ooze like a zit but it has a hard ball that comes out if you squeeze it even gently. Also even the small ones ooze if squeezed. This might not be needed but i have also noticed that other red bumps have formed on my legs, on inside and on outside also similar to a zit. If I could get a reply as soon as possible so I can get it checked by a doctor, would be helpfully.

User avatar Hello,
There are a number of possibilities for this so you will need a doctor to confirm. You could have a condition called molloscum contagiosum, or it could be something like clogged, infected glands or follicles. Of course there is also herpes but people usually complain of pain with this. If it is the MC, it can continue to spread and is contagious to other so sexual contact should be avoided. This is another reason to get it checked out in case you might be passing it along.

Best wishes.
