Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Bump on Penis



About a month ago I noticed this abnormal looking bump on my penis.  I wanted to know what it could be.  If it is a genital wart, can I be contagious if it is treated?  I want to know to protect be sure I disclose any issue I have with a future partner.


I'll teach you the full proof home test to determine if you have HPV. Get a QTip and dip it in household white vinegar. Put some on whatever bump du jour you want to test. If it turns WHITE, then it's either pre-cancerous or viral tissue and you should get it checked out and it's possible the vinegar could burn it off. However, if it stays PINK, then it's normal tissue and you have nothing to worry about. Try it out and get back to me!
