OK--how long has the spot on your penis been there?
And the lip photo--are you referring to the area that looks swollen?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Spot on penis, a couple of weeks, no discomfort or change in size during that time. Lips, there are small white spots on the upper part of the lip, they are very small and can't be see easily!

Got it--thanks.
The spot on the penis is a small cyst--also known as a Fordyce spot. Not an STD or cancer and nothing serious and it may resolve in time. If it doesn't it can be removed with cryotherapy--freezing it with liquid nitrogen

The lip spots are called milia--also small cysts and those also usually clear with time, but they can be unroofed with a small instrument by a dermatologist
