Everybody’s genitals are unique. With differences ranging from shape, size, colour, lumps and bumps etc.
It is often only when we really start looking we notice things perhaps never noticed before and therefore worry if it is normal or not.
It is important to know your body and what is normal for you. If anything changes from that norm seek medical advice.
Pearly penile papules are often a concern for men (especially young men). They are normal glands and cannot be removed. They produce tiny amounts of oily secretions that keep the skin healthy.
The Fordyce spots
These small white glands are just underneath the skin and appear in patches in both the male and female genital areas. The males are more often found around the prepuce or the skin that pulls back. They can be very prominent in some people and can be easily mistaken for genital warts. However, these do not change, whereas warts always grow bigger if they are left alone.
These are hard lumps that form underneath the skin in both male and female, and can occur anywhere in the genital area. They are just blocked up glands and they rarely cause any problem. There is no need to do anything about them. Rarely if they become infected, they can be removed surgically. It’s best to leave them alone.
