Causes Of Small Spots On The Neck Of The Penis?
I want to ask, I have small spots on the neck of the penis that are the same color as the surrounding skin, there are no symptoms. What is it?
Small spots on the neck of the penis that are the same color as the skin can be caused by pearly penile papules. Pearly penile papules have no known exact cause and are generally a normal variation that is harmless and does not require special treatment. Pearly penile papules can sometimes go away on their own.
Although harmless, some men may feel aesthetically uncomfortable with pearly peile papules. If you feel disturbed, pearly penile papules can be removed by medical intervention such as cryotherapy, electrodesiccation, laser, and excision.
Apart from pearly penile papules, a lump on the penis can also be caused by other things such as:
Molluscum contagiosum Genital warts Scabies / scabies Balanitis candida Folliculitis Contact dermatitis due to allergies or irritation to materials that come into contact with the penis To determine the cause of your complaint, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly, yes. All skin complaints can only be identified by direct examination. If necessary, the doctor can perform additional examinations, for example with a skin scraping test. Furthermore, if the cause of the lump is known then you can be given the right treatment if needed.
