Can Penile Papules Spread?

If a man wakes up one day and notices little white bumps on his penis, it’s likely he will freak out. Relax. Take a deep breath, and read on. These little white bumps – typically forming in uniquely defined rows along the penis head – may be nothing more than Pearly Penile Papules. They are not an STD, and are not something a man should freak out about. Yes, their presence may be daunting, but they are not signs of some worse illness and better yet they are not contagious. Unlike an STD they do not spread to partners.

In fact, these little white gland-like bumps that form in a ring around the rim of penis’s head are fairly common. Scores of men in their 20s and 30s have experience this phenomenon and lived to tell about it. They are not genital warts like many first believe, and have no side effects

Experts aren’t completely sure what causes these cauliflower-like growths to occur. But since they have not harmful consequences many medical experts consider them a normal skin variation and chose to let them run their course. It’s believed they will gradually fade on their own. However, while they can’t be spread to sexual partners, they can spread within your own body.While there are reports of these bumps appearing on other areas of the body, generally they tend to remain in the general area they first appeared.
