24 thoughts on “Hair Follicles Penile Shaft Scrotum

  1. Is It As Serious As I Think It Is?
    I went to go visit my significant other, some things lead to others and we had sex. Once we finished i noticed on the skin of his penis a few bumps, and one of them had torn (i guess while we where having sex) he said it was from masturbating. What could this be???

  2. I need someone who has experienced this before?
    I have these pimples on my penis. I havent been checked and Im not sure if I had an outbreak or not. Are the boils on the genital area only caused by herpes??

    • ok i obviously have not had this problem before since i’m Female but i’ve googled it for you. I think you should go and see a Doctor.

      Tiny nodules beneath the skin which appear over the scrotum and the base of the shaft of the penis are normal hair follicles.

      Small pearly spots around the crown of the glans affect about 10% of all men around the ages of 20-40. These ‘pearly penile papules’ if diagnosed, are not infectious and require no treatment.

      Small red or purple spots on the penis can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men. Known as Fordyce spots they may appear in one’s or two’s but they frequently occur in patches of up to 100. These spots come about as a result of dilated blood vessels. They can look a little unsightly but they are completely harmless. No easy way is known of removing this type of spot.

      A small-medium sized raised spot on the scrotum, sometimes filled with pus, is most likely just a spot or a boil.

      Thick red patches with a well defined edge could spell psoriasis. Psoriasis can be inherited but is rarely serious. Typically, psoriasis of the penis will be treated by a steroid cream.

      Pink-brown or skin-colored lumps with a moist surface could suggest genital warts.

  3. Urgent, a bulge appearing on my penis ?
    A small-medium sized hard bulge appeared on my penis at the bottom under part of the shaft at the (place where it meets the scrotum sac) and at slightly left part. It wasn’t there when I started and appeared right after I ejaculated !
    It has the same color of the skin and is painless.

    Did I rupture a muscle or vein/artery ?
    It’s not an STD because I haven’t had sex for ages.

    I won’t be able to visit a doctor before 12 hours from now .. that’s why I am asking here.

    • It’s possible for boys and men to have pimple-like growths on their penises. Some guys experience bumps called “penile papules” on their penises, which are normal growths that appear around the base of hair follicles. They may look “pearly” — whitish in color.

      Another fairly common condition is an infection of the sebaceous (oil-producing) glands. These growths can also look a lot like pimples.

      Both conditions are not unusual. And it’s very easy to clear up these bumps with antibiotics. So, it’s a good idea to visit a clinician for an evaluation and treatment, if needed.

  4. I have a small red painful bump on my penis?
    one on the end thought it was a pimple but its getting bigger and im a virgin

    • There most likely Papules, but please see a GP just to be safe
      *Fordyce spots: small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men. They may occur as a solitary lesion, but frequently appear in crops of 50 to 100. They are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted. They are abnormally dilated blood vessels, covered by thickened skin. They may bleed if injured or even during intercourse. They are not infectious and their cause is unknown. Although a number of approaches have been tried, there is no simple, reliable treatment to remove them. Troublesome bleeding spots can be sealed with a device that uses a small electric current (electrocautery).

      *Hair follicles and sebaceous (sweat) glands: these are a normal part of the skin’s anatomy and are commonly found on the penile shaft, particularly on the ventral surface (underside). They may be visible as small nodules or might only be felt as small lumps in the skin. They will have a hair arising from them that reveals their true nature. They are quite normal.

  5. Why are there pimples growing on my ballsack?
    I wash my balls and ballsack thoroughly everyday, yet they still continue to grow. What’s the problem?

    • It is most likely that the bumps you are describing are sebaceous glands of hair follicles on the scrotum and lower penile shaft. They are normal and harmless. You’ll most likely see hair growing from them (if not now, then soon!). And yes, hair can grow on the shaft of the penis, though most often just near the base.

      Keep in mind, too, that penile skin is not much like other skin. It is often bumpy, lumpy, and uneven, especially on the shaft. A deflated penis can look especially bumpy, but will look less so when filled and expanded. If bumps are numerous, tiny, and don’t change over time, they probably represent your normal penile skin landscape.

  6. Small White Lumps on Penile Shaft?
    I have these small white lumps on my penile shaft. They don’t hurt, they aren’t itchy, nothing, I have had them for a while now, and I am not sexually active. Of course I masturbate every now and then but, I have been told that they could be hair follicles or pimples.. Hair does grow out of some of the lumps. In fact I just checked and they are on my scrotum as well, and hair is growing out of them. Any help please? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    • it’s normal to get these some boys get them under their shaft as pubes start to grow they push their way out of your skin, some lumps and bumps are caused by masturbating a lot as your penis is getting used to that sort of friction also puberty is changing your groin area and spots and lumps will come and go. don’t worry about it, it will settle down soon enough.

  7. Rash on my penis, probably not an STD?
    for around 3 years now, i have had a rash on my scrotum and on the base of my penile shaft. In the past year it has moved halfway up my penile shaft to where my circumsicion scar is. The bumps are completely harmless so far, they never burn or itch or anything like that. im still a virgin and have never had oral sex before. the bumps are are tiny and are mainly on the backside of the shaft. They appear white if i stretch the skin out. I have heard that it could be hair follicles but i dont think would have pubs all the way up there. Does anybody know what this rash could be? Will it ever go away?

    • Whoa dude, go to a doctor quick style. You may just need a cream or something, otherwise, try wearing different kinds of underwear or something.

  8. bumps on lower penile shaft is this normal?
    ive had a few problems for a year, to do with sometimes when i urinate i feel a lower back pain kind of a cold pain, it kinda feels blocked down there like, i touch the underneath vien and it feels like its some how blocked, the pain im getting now and jus found myself is bumps on my lower penile shaft like lots of them around, the doctor said this is normal! how can it be normal if they hurt when i touch them? its like theres a knot down there, im talking about in the middle of the scrotum on the penile shaft inside

  9. Is this something to worry about?
    Sorry if this is graphic, but i though a accurate discription would be better

    Okay, so im a Virgin to just start this off (never even dated, pretty boring life)

    However ive noticed these tiny white lumps near the base of my penis, (underside near scrotum) they don’t itch or hurt or anything.
    I’m not sure how long they’ve been there either.
    I was thinking it could just be hair follicles?
    Or is it something else?

    Thank you

  10. is it “normal” that i have white dots on my penis and ball sack when im 13?
    i know this is a little wierd but i have these white dots on my penis and scrotum, i know it is not a sexually transmited disease cause i have not had sex yet im only 13, but is it “normal” thats all i want to know

    • Yeah, you’re normal. Most guys have some of that going on. Either on their shaft, on the head or I guess around the nuts too.

      Spots on the penis

      * Papules: are small (less than 1cm diameter) lumps, raised above the skin surface.

      * Hair follicles and sebaceous (sweat) glands: these are extremely common and a normal part of the skin’s anatomy. They are commonly found on the penile shaft, particularly on the ventral surface (underside). They may be visible as small nodules or might only be felt as small lumps in the skin. They will have a hair arising from them that reveals their true nature. They are quite normal.

      * Pearly penile papules: multiple, small (about 1-3mm) papules running around the circumference of the crown of the glans penis. They typically develop in men aged 20 to 40, and around 10 per cent of all men are affected. They may be mistaken for warts, are not infectious and require no treatment.

  11. Help I have a bump on the shaft of my penis?
    It is on the backside right near where it connects to the scrotum, it appeared today it is sore and hurts when I touch it and Im worried Im 15 and have never had any form of sex other than masturbation, should I go to the doctor?

    • Alright so let’s see what it might be. If it’s just sore because you’ve been rubbing yourself raw try using some lube next time masturbate. If it’s noSeptpen wound try here. boysunderattack.com
      I highly suggest you read the information on this site. Here is a sample that might explain your bump:

      It’s impossible to tell what these are without an examination. There are some really benign conditions such as “pearly penile papules” these are normal growths that appear around the hair follicles, or an infection of the sebaceous glands can cause pimple like growths. These can be simply treated using antibiotics.
