Customer Question

I noticed some bumps on my penis shaft area. The are not painful at all and don't itch, and if the light hits it right the look kind of shiny. I wanted to know if this was cause for concern. I do have an appt with a doctor next week but I would like two opinions.

Hi there,

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Not likely serious since not painful or itchy.

Infection is not likely.

They can be sebaceous cysts from oil glands commonly.
