Hi.  I am a 27 year old male.  A week ago or so I noticed these bumps (please see pictures) around the base of my glans penis.  They do not hurt, do not smell, and do not ooze.  They really just look like bumps of skin and not a sore or breakout of any sort.  Maybe I have had them for a awhile, but they look more prominent now if I have had them for awhile.

They are papules, which are natural and not dangerous in the slightest. Unless of course they could be a cluster of Fordyce's spots (which I highly doubt) and those can be a possible indication of skin cancer, so monitor them and if they don't enlarge or start to look like anything other than a bubble, then I wouldn't worry about them. They're here to stay! If you're eager to have a diagnosis, then please consult a primary care provider closest to you and consider getting a consultation and as always, stay safe!
