Customer Question

I have a little red lulp/spot on my penis head and hasn't gone away for 2 weeks. No unprotected sex had and researched not STD but possibly something called Pearly Penile Papules or something similar. Can you advise please?
JA: When did the lump first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: About 2 weeks ago and doctors app not until 23rd Sept, so would like prognosis and treatment if poss. Can email photo if required
JA: The Dermatologist will be able to answer that. Have you seen a dermatologist about the lump?
Customer: Nope, no one yet
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: Erm, well had dermatology for 12 months treatment of spots on back which finished 12 months ago and none appeared since.....just this one red spot/lump on penis head

It is difficult to fully diagnose without examination and biopsy but the differential diagnosis will be:

  • Hursutoid Papilloma
  • Fordyce Spots
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

In either case you will need to be referred by your GP to a dermatologist for accurate diagnosis

Thanks, ***** ***** there any over the counter remedies or some that can be bought to tread a general infection like this?
Expert:  RickD810 replied 18 days ago.

it is not an infection I think and there is no treatment for this.. The consition is self limiting and will disappear slowly by itself. Please read my advice as a bove and get your GP to refer you... thanks
