Not all penis bumps are warts

Not all penis bumps are warts

Penile pearly papules are tiny bumps on the rim of the glans or head of the penis.  It is common for young men to be concerned about the dots because they look like warts or other growths.  They are usually very small a couple of millimeters in diameter and are clear or pearly in appearance.  If you have these don’t be alarmed.  A note of caution just because you have pearly papules doesn’t mean you can ignore other bumps or lesions on your penis.  Everyone who is not practicing safe sex and notices lesions that are suspicious should seek medical attention.

Condyloma Acuminata - Is It Contagious?

Venereal warts are very contagious, most often spread by sexual intercourse. It is believed that two out of three individuals that have sexual contact with a partner with condyloma will get lesions within 3 months. If your sexual partner(s) is known to have venereal warts, protective measures need to be taken by the use of condoms until both you and your partner are free of warts

What Are Warts?

Filed under General Info

Warts are tumors or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV). More than 70 HPV subtypes are known.

Warts are particularly common in childhood and are spread by direct contact or autoinocculation. This means if a wart is scratched, the viral particles may be spread to another area of skin. It may take as long as twelve months for the wart to first appear.
