Little white bumps around penis

For a very long time, i've had these little white bumps around my penis. the area is around the tip, not very tip, but aound where it would begin. I dont know how i aquired these, its not really a big issue to me, but ive jus been very curious of what it is. if someone has any info, please let me know.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

Do you mean around the edge of the glans or on the outside of the foreskin? If it's the former it's probably PPP's (Pearly Penile Papules), a harmless outgrowth associated with sensitive nerves that worries some blokes for no good reason. If it's on the outside of the foreskin they are probably sebaceous glands, oil glands to keep the skin supple and moist.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

i didnt really pay much attention when it comes to the scientific terms of the body, only way i can really explain it, is around where the shaft ends, and where the head starts, how it has a ring like shape, around that area. they almost look like skin tags one would put it. they kinda stick out, not by much. if any of that cleares it up, let me know if you got anything to tell me about this.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

that is pearly penile papules. they are harmless nerve endings, and normal.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

if thats what it is, why is it that every relationship ive had, no female has ever seen anything like this, or even know what it is? its embarrassing when women question about it, how did i get these?

Re: Little white bumps around penis

if pearly penile papules are what they are, they are usually located around the rim of the head. they are pretty common. something like 30% of guys have them. you might want to use a search engine, to find pictures and see if they look similar to what you are trying to describe.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

you're right, thats what they are. how do you even get this? is it considered a disease, or some sort of natural enhancement o what. I mean im 19, and this is somethin i could never figure out. explain to me how you get this, and why i have these.

Re: Little white bumps around penis

you don't get it like a disease, it's a part of you. it's just how the nerve endings look, on about 30% of guys. you are this way, because your father was, or the men in your mother's family.
