Fordyce spots also termed Fordyce granules   are visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals. They are not associated with any disease or illness, nor are they infectious but rather they represent a natural occurrence on the body. No treatment is therefore required, unless the individual has cosmetic concerns.
Much like the skin on other parts of your body, the skin on your penis is prone to rashes, acne, infections, and other conditions. Lumps and bumps on your penis — while potentially alarming — are common and usually noncancerous. In fact, the American Cancer Society reports that penile cancer is quite rare, affecting less than 1 inin the United States each year.
Sebaceous hyperplasia is a very common condition that causes small bumps on the skin. The bumps are most often skin-colored, but can also take on a white to slightly yellow tint. They range in size from 1 or 2 millimeters to several millimeters in size.
A condition that nobody likes and everybody is bound to encounter at some point in their life. But what happens when acne continues beyond the adolescent stage, and what happens when acne spreads to the genital area? An embarrassing - and potentially painful - condition, penis pimples are, unfortunately, a relatively common occurrence.
How can you smear on a face mask in the exact right area of your back? Or vacne — acne around your vulva — which always feels especially painful. Scracne can feel pretty scary, because we generally tend to panic and think the worst when we spot anything out of the ordinary on our genital area.
Pimples can develop anywhere you have pores. This means they can form anywhere on your body, including the penis. Other bumps and lumps that occur around the penis could be something else entirely, and may require medical attention.
I have a girlfriend of seven years. After some hugely painful nights and another near breakup, we are in a good place now. We have lots of great vanilla sex, we love being together, and we recently got engaged. After everything I put her through — and I put her through hell — how do I tell her that being mocked and worse for having a small dick is the only thing I ever think about when I masturbate?
It is important to note that having a risk factor does not mean that one will get the condition. A risk factor increases ones chances of getting a condition compared to an individual without the risk factors. Some risk factors are more important than others.
