In order to set an accurate diagnosis and determine if you are indeed suffering from Pearly Penile Papules, you need to undergo a specialized consultation performed by a GP or a dermatologist. If you notice small, white or skin-coloured, dome-shaped bumps set circumferentially around the corona of the penis, in one or several rows, you are most probably dealing with Pearly Penile Papules or PPP.
PPP is a common genital skin condition affecting only men, and quite a lot too, as approx. 30$ of the world’s male population have it. Pearly Penile Papules are harmless skin growths, mostly thought to be caused by obstructed sebaceous glands, but specialists have not yet determined a certain triggering factor, given that PPP affect all men, since puberty or the age of 16-17 until the age of 45, regressing with age. PPP are not malignant, nor pre-malignant, are not sexually transmittable, hence not an STI, are never contagious, are asymptomatic and have no connection to personal hygiene.
And although a PPP removal treatment, with radiosurgery for example, is a simple, quick and highly effective procedure, a specialized Pearly Penile Papules consultation is still mandatory, first of all for an accurate diagnosis, as PPP may resemble other genital diseases or infections, and secondly to determine which PPP removal treatment best suits your individual case for minimal risks and maximum medical and cosmetic results.
