Hello Dr
I am a male 28 years old
I have these projection on the under surface of my penis just at the root of the Frenulum
I have this projection since I was 13 yr old ( at puppetry )
they don't grow up or disappear .
they are not vesicles and don't contain any secretions .
I was considering them normal until I read about HPV warts !
can you help me ?


Since I'm not a physician, I cant make any guarantees what they are, but I cant tell you that your skin tags DO appear to be warts. However, if you've had them since "puberty" then no its not HPV dear. It would be just warts! And yes you can have them removed by a dermatologist during an in-house procedure, so I would consult a physician for further follow-up. However, if you want to know that it isn't HPV, you could always get checked for it with your primary care doctor; just ask to be tested for it.

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
