I have pimple like bumps in my pubic area that can be popped…

So i have pimple...

So i have pimple like bumps in my pubic area that can be popped when pressed hard enough, but i also have these like small white bumps on my shaft. They aren’t painful and they appear in clusters and are very small. I’m concerned as to what it is and i don’t want to assume the worst

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

There is no pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No not that I’m aware of

I’m 20. A few months ago i noticed these bumps just assuming they would go away. No other illnesses and i haven’t talked to a doctor yet. I’ve taken medicine recently but I’ve had the bumps prior to that

I believe i added it

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
I have got the picture.
Those can be swelling of sebaceous glands.
Common one is epidermoid /sebaceous cyst.
Trauma or injury to skin can be a factor.
A collection of white secretion can occur in those..
These are benign ones.
Please do not worry.
During next visit to doctor, you can show those.
You can apply warm moist compress.
It can help to express out the secretion.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Or is this just something wrong with my body itself that i couldn’t have gotten from anyone else?

This is not contagious.
You can have sex.
During next routine visit, you can show it to doctor.
It is not urgent.

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.
