Are Lumps Around The Head Of The Penis A Symptom Of Genital Warts?
I want to ask, I did have sex 12 years ago. (When it was still 15 years and it was last) r n r nThen after some time I read artiel about HPV and I tried to see my penis there was like a lump around the base of the head penis is very small and small. It’s been a long time but I leave it because it doesn’t interfere. There have never been any symptoms of itching, pain, bleeding, heat and anything but I’m a little worried now after reading the article about HPV. R n r nWhat is the most striking difference to identify that this is a pearl or HPV papule? R nOh yes yes. .. I am also an active blood donor. r n r n Thank you,
Hello, PaulAxel, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps on the penis can be caused by various causes, such as pearly penile papules (pearl papules), genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, fordice spots (oil glands that are clearly visible along the shaft of the penis), etc. Genital warts are often caused by infection with HPV strains 6 and 11. To differentiate genital warts from other causes of lumps in the penis, complete data is needed starting from the patient's medical history, history of the patient's sexual activity, direct physical examination by the doctor, and several investigations.
In genital warts, patients usually have a history of unprotected sexual intercourse (eg not using a condom, not knowing the health history of a sexual partner, etc.) and have never been vaccinated against HPV. In addition, on physical examination there are lumps that resemble cauliflower, or lumps are uneven, rough, and not symmetrical. Usually the lump will increase over time. In addition, the investigation can also be carried out tests of acetic acid solution (the infected part will turn white), DNA testing, or biopsy (see tissue samples under a microscope).
So, to be sure, you can go to the doctor to be seen directly and carried out an appropriate examination so that the exact cause is known.
That's all, hopefully thank you.
