Is iit possible to develop sebaceous prominence or penile pAPULES spontaneously? Or is it somehing u have or dont have? If so, what produces them?

Idefinitely have Sebaceous Prominence but it is fairly new to me. I currently only see the bumps at the end of the shaft near the scrotum to about 1/5 of the way towards the head. I was wondering if this is the only place the sebaceous prominence will be or does it always spread to cover the entire penis? The photos available online always show the entire penis covered with bumps, but I have also found that the internet medical sites tend to show the most severe cases only.

Ive had bumps around my penis, on my scrotum(where hair grows) and along my penis, slowly i notice expansion, ive had a few sex partners and they never noticed. it looks simular to Sebaceous bumps on my head, and no clusters of huge warts. just shallow pimple looking bumps. if i try and pop them like a pimple it hurts a little, and sometimes i can get some white looking puss to come out, but with pain (maybe because i pinch too hard). ive had them for a while. what should i do?

I have both Pearly Penile Papules, and Sebaceous Prominence. Lately though, I've noticed red bumps on the foreskin that I can only see if I stretch it out and look closely. They don't hurt, but itch every once in awhile. I was wondering if that could be HPV, or is related to the PPP or SP

I have some small bumps on the base of my penis. I was worried so have been looking around on the web about HPV. My bumps look a lot like the pictures of Sebaceous Prominence.

I think I read they have something to do with hair follicles.....

doctor says yes, but i looked at your pictures and they look exactly like the sebaceous prominence. What's the difference?

4 years ago, my partner was diagnosed with genital warts. The doctor burned them off with some liquid and they never came back. But as I see pictures, I think they looked ALOT like Sebaceous Prominence. They didnt really look like warts. Plus, I havent broken out either. Would the liquid have burned off the harmless Sebaceous Prominence?

I think my doctor might have missed diagonised me and i am out of my mind. what do i do.

I am 16 years old,ive had spots on my penis for about six months it is not genitle warts because i am not sexualy active but i do belive i have sebaceous prominence. however there is one that is seperated from the rest is is larger, and is the size of a pin head, but it is only skin deep (i can lift my skin and feel underneath it) should i be worried?

I have read almost all the questions and answers on Sebaceous Prominence. I am 99% sure this is what i have and i now know almost everything about them. But does anyone actually know how to get rid of them or make them less noticable?

Hey guys. A few weeks ago i was playing with my boyfriends penis and felt a lump (felt about half a mm big, if that and didn't feel like a wart like I have had on my hand). I didn't see it so don't know what it looks like. I told my B/F and he said later he couldn't feel anything. Do you guys reckon it could have been follicitis of something cos I've heard that some normal bumps can only be felt when the penis is erect? Can you have just one bump if it's sebaceous prominence and not a wart?

Is it possible to get pearly papules somewhere other than your shaft. I have these small whitish pimple stuff on my penis. I also have this bump on my penis. It's skin colored though.

Is it possible to get pearly papules and sebaceous prominence ON your penis, not only on your shaft? Please let me know.

I have had small white bumps on the underside of my penis and covering my scrotum for many years now. On occasion one will rise up on the shaft and I can pop it like a pimple(white stuff comes out). These bumps are mainly on my scrotum where the majority of the hair is. I havent had sex before mainly because I avoided it since I thought I had HPV until I read about sebaceous prominence recently. Does this sound like sebaceous prominence or can HPV cause these same symtoms?

On the back of my penis and lower part of my penis i have the small bumps that look like the Sebaceous Prominence.

How could i have got these, and how can i get rid of them, if possible?

Thanks

So I have a bump on the lower shaft, it is kinda has a shine to it, looks like it would be just a pimple though. Please help.
