A:   Hi
Thank you for the question.

Penile spots are not usually a sign of anything very serious. It’s understandable that men can be very concerned if they notice penile spots. They’re frequently worried that they may have some form of cancer.

Some really common penile spots:
- Fordyce spots
These are tiny white or yellowish spots, found on the head of the penis or the shaft. If your skin is brown or black, they may look more prominent. They are normal.
- Pearly papules
Pearly penile papules are also normal. They are very small bumps, the same colour as your skin, but with a pearly appearance. They usually appear around the glans (head) of the penis in a row.
- Septic spots

They’re particularly common in young adults. Sometimes a small pimple appears on the penis. This is not a serious matter and no treatment is needed. Do not squeeze the spot, because you may spread infection.

It is better to talk to your Doctor regarding this. Seek immediate medical if the problem continues. I hope this will help you. Take care
