Above the penis below stomach area. I'm 32 not sure how long these raised areas have been here.

Can you confirm if you got my images?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
those look like water warts or molloscum contagiosum
which are water warts spread by contact.
they are caused by a virus
but your body clears them in 6-12 months
they are not dangerous.

Sorry, are these sexual warts that need removed?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
no, these molloscum contagiosum warts do not need to be removed.
but they can be spread through sexual contact.
but they are not dangerous.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How have I got these if I'm married? Are these easily caught?? Is there any treatment over the counter for them?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
yes, they are easily caught and spread.
Prescription creams and gels containing retinoids, such as tretinoin (Atralin, Retin-A, others), adapalene (Differin) and tazarotene (Avage, Tazorac) can be used to treat molluscum contagiosum
also other creams with Cantharidine solution can help as well

Last questions are these the same as a genital wart? And do I need to see a sexual health nurse?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
no, these are not the same as genital warts
these are water warts or molloscum contagiosum.
they are caused by a different virus than genital warts.

ok, but do I need to see a sexual health nurse? Or do I just carry on with things?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
you don't have to see a sexual health nurse.
these water warts don't need treatments with antibiotics or antiviral therapy
they are not dangerous but can be very contagious.
you can see a doctor to confirm their diagnosis.
but they are not dangerous.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your help. Would you recommend me getting a second opinion or is that just paranoia?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
you can always get a second opinion.
that is up to you.
