Question: Yellow Bumps on Penis and Scrotum


 USArmyMP8807 - Wed Jan 07, 2009 2:08 am

I am a healthy 20 year old male that is a smoker. I do not have a medical history with any problems. I have had these yellow bumps that appeared sometime ago. They cause me no pain, or itching whatsoever. I have no idea of what it is exactly. At first I thought they could be pimples because I shave completey down there. I squeezed them and most of them didn't pop. However, there were a few of them that when I continuesly squeezed them they popped. It wasn't like a pimple in the way that when a pimple pops it is quick and after all of the puss comes out then blood will come out. The yellow stuff that came out of them came out like a string of yellow stuff. It wasn't wet, slimy, gooey, or any of that. On some of them if I scratched them with my finger nail it will just bleed with no puss at all. I am not sure what it is exactly and I just want it off of me. I read some of the other forum pages and wasn't able to get a clear answer of exactly what it could be. I have one bump on the underside of the shaft of my penis and the rest are on the sides of my scrotum where they constantly are touching my thighs. I take a bath once or twice daily and keep clean. I pay special attention to my genital region and scrub vigourously. I need some help and multiple opions of the finest doctors in the medical field.

Thanks again for your time,
