I have what appear to be small "nodules" on the gland (head) of my penis, but I only have 3 or 4 of them and they aren't in a "ring" shape or close together. They somewhat resemble acne type pimples. I noticed the first nodule when I was a teenager, and then over the years more nodules have developed. I am now 34 years old. Two of the nodules are considerably larger than the others and are located at the top edge and side edge of the gland, and the other smaller ones are randomly located on the inset of my gland (not on the edge). Occasionally, if I squeeze one really hard, it will discharge what appears to be a thick white substance similar to what you would squeeze out of a blackhead on your face. I suspect the larger ones may have gotten that way as a result of the irritation from squeezing over the years. I know this sounds gross, but it's starting to concern me, as I've done quite a bit of searching on the internet and have not found any similar cases of randomly placed papules on the actual penis gland. None of them have ever disappeared. I'm not overly self conscious but its definitely at least mildly embarrassing and has an effect on my ability to become aroused as I do think about whether my partner is looking at it or thinking about it, and it must have an unusual feeling on the mouth/tongue to say the least. My partner is not very fond of oral sex and sometimes I wonder whether or not the nodules are a factor in why. I just cannot bring myself to discuss it. I can't imagine what a full ring of them would do to a mans self esteem. I truly feel for you guys with full PPP rings. My question is, is PPP strictly a ring-style formation of these papules or does what I described fall into the PPP category as well? They definitely don't look like genital warts; they look more like the ribs (papules) that most men form along the shaft of their penis, which I have as well and think nothing of. You can definitely notice the two larger bumps when looking at my penis from a short distance, more so if I don't have an erection. Is this something I need to be concerned about health-wise, and even if not, are they removable? Does anyone else have this type of papule formation on their penis gland? Due to the unusual nature of the locations and formations of these nodules, I'm inclined to take a picture and post it for comparison but I don't know what the rules of the forum are about that type of thing. Thanks in advance for your comments.
PPP or not PPP? That.. is the question!
I'm sure random papules can occur on the glans. I really doubt it is anything harmful except to your psyche. I guess you can post a pic, if you can please crop the picture to show only the affected area. We don't need a show here if you know what I mean.
I'd suggest also that if you post a picture, you post it as a link (the URL code) rather than as an image.
