Customer Question
noticed small dark colored bumps...
I am a 34 year male. Within the last year or so I have noticed small dark colored bumps or pimples at the base and on the shaft of my penis. They cause no pain or itch or have any discharge. I now have a total of 4 mostly on the shaft. They don't seem to grow any larger and remain dark in color almost like a blood blister. The head of my penis is clear and has not remarkable changes. What could this be?

Hello,

This is most likely warts caused by HPV - and since you do not have many - you can make an appointment with your doctor to 'freeze' these off with nitrogen, or you can ask for a prescription called Aldara - and this will help too.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
