Hello from JustAnswer.

This is Dr Love, and I will be glad to assist you today.

Could you attach a picture of the bump, either a close-up or a high resolution image that would allow for zooming?

the last two are on the other side one im pointing to then the next is at the bass of the penis. im pretty sure these are follicle bumps its the first one that has me worried.
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the picture.

The appearance of the bump is more that it is composed of fibrous tissue, such as a fibroma. A fibroma can form at a site of previous inflammation, including if there was inflammation or infection in a hair follicle, although it does not always do so.

It is possible that a genital wart can start with this appearance, but it will get progressively larger becoming more cauliflower in appearance, but this is more likely a fibroma.

It is not necessary to treat a fibroma unless it is bothersome to you.

it is unlikely to be a wart? i have had it for a about 2 months and it has not grown in size. it may be possible i had it before the sexual encounter i was just concerned when i saw it after this most recent sexual contact.

Correct, it is unlikely to be a wart.
