Hello David,

This is likely to be sebaceous hyperplasia. Usually this resolves on its own. Please read about sebaceous hyperplasia;

This does not look like a sexually transmitted disease.

How long does it take to go away? Can I still have sex? And its definitely not a serious concern?


Yes David you may continue sex. This is likely to go away in 2-3 weeks. It is unlikely to be serious.

It is privilege assisting you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Is it normal for it to feel abit tender to touch? Sorry doc im just worried tis all, is there anything I can use to help speed up the recovery?

A mild tenderness is not abnormal and that can occur due to friction of clothes or sex. Does not seem to be worrisome.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Shoukd I pop it will it go away



Popping is not advised, David. This is likely to resolve spontaneously.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It will eventually go away though will it? Its not going to be there forever and I won't need it to be surgically removed?

Yes eventually it would go away and surgery is unlikely.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You are welcome.
