what do they look like and how many are there?
they are small raised skin colour bumps, maybe 7 of them
base/shaft of your penis?
are they painful?
pretty small, id say around 1mm . not painful at all. i thought for awhile they were just froycde spots, but they look to be on the outside of the skin
they are skin color though...right?
i never thought anything of them untill i recently got out of a long term relationship and started thinking aout dating agian
yeah they are, maybe slighly lighter
so they have been there for a long time?
not sure when they showed up, i donthink they've been there forever but ahile at least
maybe 6ish months
ok. so if you scrape it with your fingernail is the contour smooth or rough?
getting any bigger
go away and come back
they do not change in size and do not go away
sounds like you're probably dealing with genital warts.
your primary care doctor should be able to confirm.
thats what i was afraid of. you dont think i could be anything else?
could be simply skin tags too, which is not a wart and due to friction.
but the location and description is consistent with warts...unfortunately.
if you scratch one off it will come back in the same place, correct?
i did that with a small one a week ago and its just healed up like normal. hasnt come back
the time frame is a bit short...
warts will come and go normally without doing anything.
even when we freeze them, they can still come back in time.
sometimes they don't though.
well so much for getting some peace of mind, guess ill have to go to the doc then
yes thank you
ha no worries jsut doin your job
