Patient: Hello,I have these bump on my penis which are worrying me. I have them for a while now (couple of months or so I guess). I have a relationship with a single girl for over a year, and had sex with her after having these bumps and she seems to be fine.They don’t hurt, they don’t itch, they’re just there.What may they be ? How do I get rid of them? Can they be sexually transmitable?
