Bumps on penis...hpv or scar?
First off, I have a scar on my penis from when I was circumcized. My mother told me that they cut a little too low and that the clamp pinched me really bad and that it left a scar. I have two healed "holes" on the shaft of my penis from where the clamp pinched me. It's a really bad pinch mark scar. Also, right by one of the "holes" is an irregular bump, and there are a few tiny bumps near it. I'm pretty sure that it was always there, and it might be one of those cases about "discovering" a bump on the penis that may have been there my whole life and that I'm just paranoid. I even asked my mother about it (embarassing as it was, but she would know I suppose). She told me that I had an irregular bump on my penis by one of the "holes" where I was cut during circumcision. My only question is why would there be a few tiny bumps in the area too? Is it possible for scar tissue to appear that way? I even showed it to a doctor during a routine physical and told him that I thought it was a scar. He didn't think it was warts, but he wasn't a dermatologist and didn't inspect it too much. I intend to see a dermatologist soon, but I'm just wondering if it could just be scar tissue. Oh, also, if the bumps are warts, how quickly would I notice growth if they were to grow and spread? I haven't noticed any spreading, but I'll keep my eye on it. Thanks for any input.
