Dear Worriedintx,

The tiny white bumps that can push like a pimple may be normal. Sometimes such white bumps appear on the penis shaft, as well. The knots under the skin also can be normal, but must be evaluated by your doctor. You didn't mention if the bumps on your penis shaft are there all the time, or only when erect. Your doctor needs to evaluate them, as well. Please be sure to have thorough hygiene for both your scrotum and penis; if you are uncircumcised, be sure to pull back your foreskin and clean off any smegma ("white stuff") every day. It does not sound urgent, but you should still see your doctor right away. Do not be embarrassed; your doctor has undoubtedly checked such things out many times.

Good luck to you.
