I am 20 years old and I have had sex


Q: I am 20 years old and I have had sex with quite a few women. I have always used a condom, except for a few months ago with a woman I did not know. I have noticed recently a small pea size bump under the skin, at the base of my shaft. it doesn't really hurt but is noticeable. I also have a few pinkish colored bumps around my genital area, almost resembling small skin tags. I am very nervous and don't know what to do about this. Is this going to ruin my life? Can you tell me what it could be?

Symptoms:  No symptoms, besides the bumps
