I noticed I had these two small white spots near below my penis head, they have separate location one being on the left and one being on the right. Their not itchy or painful at all. I don't know when I got them exactly but it really is scaring me. They seem to be smaller than 1cm diameter for sure. Like the tip of a pen or smaller even.

Answer
Milium cysts are small, white bumps (or milia when they occur in groups) that can appear anywhere on the body. The cysts occur when keratin become trapped beneath surface of the skin. Keratin is a strong protein that is typically found in skin, hair, and nail cells. Treatment is extraction by a lancet.
