Forum Name: Male Sexual Disorders

Question: Lump on Penis

 MikeDuke - Thu Jul 05, 2007 9:20 pm


I'm 18 years old male and I am a virgin. None of my family has ever had and sexuality problems.

I had a little pimple like bump on the shaft my penis and was only visible when I was erected ever since I can remember. I knew it wasn't an STD or anything like that because the only thing I've ever had ever done was mutual masturbation. However recently I found another one of the pimple like bump near the base of my penis. Can anyone please explain what this bumps are?

User avatar You may be seeing hair follicles or possible some blocked sweat glands. These bumps are quite common and are harmless.

If they begin to get bigger or become painful you should have them checked out.

Best wishes.
