Answer
Hi Andre,

The formation could actually be a form of fungus leading to balanitis. Maybe they never healed quite properly and left calcifications that could even be slight scars. I would discuss this with your primary care provider as their may be a means to try to treat this with prescription medication.

Best wishes,

John
