HPV FAQ Header Image







I have what appear to be a couple little bumps around the base of my penis. They kind of look like pimples, but very small. I''ve had 2 of them for about 3 days, and one appears to have pretty much gone away. I went to an std clinic once before for something that looked similar and they told me it was probaly an ingrown hair, but not hpv. So i'm wondering, is it likely that they're just pimples or ingrown hairs or something, or is it likely that they're genital warts?


this is not a question but its important!!! if your a guy and have a bump you need a biopsy!! its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! wemon can get a papsmear to know....and for wemon who dont have the virus they can now take 3 vacines to prevent exposure to the more severe forms of the virus but for men the onlything we have is biopsys cut it and test it!!!



I''ve had the same problem. Around the base of the penis, happens when you shave ya pubes. But what I've got is a lil' different, think someone could gimme an answer? Well, they look like those small pimple-like things you get from ingrown hairs except they don't pop and they're all over my ball-sack. Although, they do appear around the hair growth. Only thing is they've been there for awhile now, whereas if I get an ingrown hair I usually just pop the thing. Any ideas? Treatments methods would be useful as well.

(Why o' why did god invent disease)




Probably ingrown hairs. As youll see, most cases of warts are on the head or shaft of the penis.

At the base there is generally more hair, and a likely reason to believe that you''re just noticing ingrown hairs or folliculitus. For more info on folliculitus please search google.



I have the same thing, im pretty sure its ingrown hairs from shaving because I shave and i noticed thes bumps and it wont go away, since pubic hairs are curly it makes it harder for the hair to grow back. if you are really concerned then you should see a dermotologists but im pretty sure its nothing serious.



i think youre screwed man



Those should be penile papules. I went to visit my doctor and he needed to use a magnifying glass to see the hair folicles. Just because you can''t see hairs all over your body doesn't mean that you are hairless. I had that all around the base of my penis. They come and they go and there isn't too much to do about them as far as I know.






yea, your screwed man



Yeah, I have one of those bumps atm. Checked it with a doctor. She said its def not HPV and most likely ingrown hair or irritated from shaving. Flat bump under the skin. She said HPV is on top of the skin.
