Bumps on the Penis (non-std related)?

For a few years now I've had bumps on the shaft of my penis along with some on the scrotum. These bumps aren't painful, have the same colour as the normal skin pigments, however if I squeeze them, sometimes this hardened pus-y matter comes out.

I've been to several general physicians and they've all told me that its nothing to worry about. Does anyone know what they may be and any suggestions to treat them?

Hi

These skin colored bumps have warts, skin tags and molluscum as differentials. However, not all bumps or lumps in the groin area are due to an infectious process. They may be clogged follicles or enlarged sebaceous gland. This has been assessed by your doctor and there seems to be no cause of worry since molluscum and warts may be readily diagnosed.

I suggest that you refrain from touching these as it may only cause further irritation or infection.

Hi. Im a 14 yo male, have not had sex yet, and i do masturbate once every couple days. I have little red bumps in my pubic area and i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions as to what they could be. They dont itch, they arent painful and dont seem to affect me at all. Thanks!

If several general physicians tell you that it is nothing to worry about, then it is nothing to worry about.
If you need more info, try googling for Pearly Penile Papules, or have a look at this page where these conditions are discussed: http://ravenshare.blogspot.com/2013/09/pearly-penile-papules-removal.html
