sebaceous glands

HI, for as long as i can remember i have had bumps around the shaft of my penis, in the past two years i have gotten tested and had the doctor examine my penis. Well all my tests came back negative for std's and she said that these bumps i have had since i can remember are sebaceous glands and are normal. I tend to over think everything and panic. recently I started to worry that this was maybe a wrong diagnosis and they could maybe be genital warts caused by hpv. The bumps do not hurt, they are there constantly, they look like sebaceous glands, they are skin colored. When my penis is errect the bumps are more prominate and noticeable is this how sebaceous glands are? also they have been there for years constantly, they are not in patches, they are all over is this how genital warts are? Can anyone help.

There is another name for what you have. Fordyce spots.
I have them too.
No big deal.
They scared me when I started to notice them aswell.
There are treatments for them, but they are not needed.

Cheers
