Customer Question

Hello,
I've had a small bunch of skin (smaller than the size of a pencil eraser) on the underside of the shaft of my penis, near frenulum. It's been there for a few years and has never bled or itched, etc but I'm curious as to what it might be. I have pics if needed.

Hello and thanks again for the help. Again, this condition has been present for longer than I can remember, doesn't itch, hasn't gotten any bigger with time and when I squeeze the skin it doesn't hurt, puss doesn't pop out, etc.

Hello
Ok
This looks like a common wart.
It has to be removed in the doctors office, not at home and not with creams, which will only inflame it most likely.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Ok thanks for the reply. Is it "contagious" in its present state? Is a "common wart" and a "genital wart" the same thing? If I have it removed, can it come back?

It is contagious.
Warts are all from different strains.
yes it can come back.
