I have lots of little bumps almost like goosebumps or whiteheads on my penis. Is this a sign that something is wrong? These are common and they're nothing to worry about.
Articles in the December issue discuss various health issues affecting school-aged children, including acne, eczema and growth disorders. Volume 42, No. Even after a thorough examination it can be difficult to distinguish a normal penile anatomical variant from pathology needing treatment.
The corona of glans penis or penis crown refers to the circumference of the base of the glans penis in human males which forms a rounded projecting border, overhanging a deep retroglandular sulcusbehind which is the neck of the penis. It is the location where some males may develop Hirsuties papillaris genitalisor "pearly penile papules", a common and harmless condition. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Precancerous conditions of the penis are changes to penis cells that make them more likely to develop into cancer. These conditions are not yet cancer. The most common precancerous conditions of the penis are: penile intraepithelial neoplasia PeIN balanitis xerotica obliterans BXO Buschke-Lowenstein tumour bowenoid papulosis leukoplakia.
In fact, many are more likely to be caused by other conditions. Still, if you have any of them, see a doctor right away so their cause can be found and treated, if needed. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the sooner you can start treatment and the better it is likely to work.
Various abnormalities can affect the skin of the penis. Some are bodywide skin disorders that affect the penis as well as other parts of the skin. Examples can include psoriasislichen planusand seborrheic dermatitis.
More often than not, it will be something that is far less serious but a condition you will want to get checked out nevertheless. A non-infectious penile skin condition is one that you cannot get it from or pass it to another person. While this shouldn't suggest that you can ignore it, a non-infectious skin condition tends to be less serious than an infectious one. While more irritating than problematic, the condition may be caused by harsh chemicals, abrasion, or an allergen your doctor can help identify.
Sometimes men write to ISNA, saying that they have a line down the underside of their penis, all the way to the anus, and they wonder if this is evidence of some sort of intersex condition. After 7 weeks, for boys with typical development, the fetal testes produce testosterone, and the testosterone causes the urogenital swellings to swell, come together in the middle, and fuse, forming the scrotum and the underside of the penis. If the fetus has an unusual level of certain hormones, or an unusually high or low ability to respond to them, then intersex appearance can result.
