Question: White bumps on penis and testicles...

 gqwhat - Wed Dec 26, 2007 5:50 am

Ok I wanted to be able to put up a picture I took on here.. can anyone help me do that?

But I have small white bumps on my testicles and lower shaft. I feel like I have had them for a really long time but lately they ahve gotten worse. Is there anything you could tell me about them? How to get rid of them? etc? I think they might be "pilar cysts" but I am not sure. I also have one small one on my chest.

User avatar Hi Gqwhat,

You may be seeing some blocked pores or prominent hair follicles. I would recommend that you have your doctor take a look at this the next time your in the office.

Best wishes.
