Customer Question
I have these small, reddish/purple...
I have these small, reddish/purple, blood filled bumps on tip of my penis. I first noticed it when I was 18. I'm now 51 and the last couple years I've developed several more. They're not painful or itchy. I'm concerned it's getting worse. Can you tell what it might be and any way I can get rid of them?

Sure. Attached is pic. I've popped one of the bumps and it bleed. It scabbed and came back. It cosemetically bothers me.

Reiter's Disease,Lichen Sclerosus and Psoriasis need to be considered,you need to seek the opinion of a Dermatologist who can help you further.You may need a biopsy for confirming the problem.

I've not heard of those. Could it be Angiokeratoma?
Health Professional: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I do not think it is an Angiokeratoma.But that is a possibility.

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!!
