Bumps On Penis

Conditions causing bumps on the penis include pearly penile papules, ingrown hair, Fordyce spots, pimples, cysts, lymphoceles, angiokeratomas, and rash and blisters due to lichen planus. They can also be due to sexually transmitted infections like genital herpes, warts due to the human papillomavirus, syphilis, and molluscum contagiosum. Rarely does penis cancer manifests with such bumps.
