I have some bumps...

I have some bumps on the shaft of my penis near the base. Not many just a few, under some of the bumps the skin is darker than the rest. Should I be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

They've been there for a while they don't hurt. Haven't noticed any major changes in my skin or nails.

How long have you had those?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Not sure when I first noticed them. Maybe a year or more.

Not cancer or genital warts or herpes there

These are small benign cysts sometimes referred to as Fordyce spots

If they bother you a dermatologist can easily rid you of them either with liquid nitrogen freezing or with a cold CO2 laser

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
