I have boil or boil type thing in my penis balls which does not have pain but is increasing day by dayI have boil or type thingnin my penis ball which is increasing day by day
Dr. Shyam Gupta

Hello PATIENT to 1mg. If you've never had sex, little white bumps on the shaft of the penis may be pimples, a skin cyst, or ingrown hairs. These are common and they're nothing to worry about. Another condition that's normal and no cause for concern is pearly penile papules. These whitish bumps appear on the glans (head) of the penis or along the edge of the glans in many guys. Pimples, cysts, ingrown hairs and papules won't do any harm ? though if you try to pop them they could get infected. If you are having sex or have had sex in the past, bumps on the penis may be signs of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs, also called sexually transmitted infections or STIs).
Sir/Madam, Kindly explain my abnormal test results.
