Is this Genital Warts

Hi Doctor,
Please help me to identify skin tags on my penis,
I have these skin tags since 2002, 17 years ago, they do not change and do not multiply.
I am 38 years old, I am married for 5 years. and my wife has nothing.

Are they HPV warts or benign skin tags or Dermatofibroma?

here are two close ups of the skin


Thank you!

They aren't genital warts if you've had them since 2002. HPV would have cleared your system by now.

They could be skin tags, dematofibroma, or really, a host of other things that are totally normal, but to find out for sure, your doctor would have to take a look and perhaps biopsy them. There are lots of things that cause bumps on the penis, and many look alike, so testing is the only way to know for sure.

Thank you a lot,
did you see my two pictures? thank you Doctor.
I did look at your pics, and I'm not a doctor. No one is on this site. We can only offer guidance and information, no diagnoses. Even a doctor wouldn't be able to tell what that is from a pic and would need to biopsy them to know for sure.

I have a flat tag on the side of my penis for 6+ years. Looks exactly like a wart would look. About 2mm wide. It has never changed, never got bigger, and no other spots have popped up. Wife never got any warts either. I have read other forums where people have had wart-like flat tags. So, don't worry. It's almost certainly not an STD.
