Do you have any history of unprotected sex with multiple partners?
Are your partners tested for HPV?
There are sebaceous glands near the base of penis and secrete an oily or waxy substance.They serve to lubricate the hair and skin. On the penis, they may appear off-white or yellow in color. Although they are very small, the sebaceous glands may be visible because the tissues of the organ are thin and easier to see beneath.
Some individuals may have more noticeable glands than others. This is normal, and they cannot be removed through squeezing.Doing so could lead to an infection, so it is best to leave them alone.
They may not require any treatment.In case if these get infected from shaving etc than antibiotic cream can be helpful.
Also in males usually no test are done for HPV and only females are tested for HPV DNA test.
In men only visible warts by HPV are treated by various methods.
Most HPV infection in males clear on their own if immunity is good.
I hope this helps

Also if possible you should verify your partner reports of the routine PAP test and HPV test.
You may discuss this with your primary care physician/dermatologist for further diagnosis and management.
