Small, Flat Bump on Penis

Posted , 4 users are following.

About 10 months ago, I noticed a small bump on the shaft of my penis. It is flesh colored and slightly raised. I had my PM look at it recently and he said it didn't appear to be a wart. He said he would refer me to a specialist next visit if it has not gone away. Today when examining it, I also noticed a grayish patchy area next to the bump. Does this look like a possible genital wart to you? If not a wart, thoughts on what it could be?imageimageimage

    Just a follow up in case anyone experiences something similar. Talked to an online doctor, shared symptoms and pictures, and was advised that this is not a genital wart, but a prominent sebaceous gland. The gray discoloration is penile lentigo - neither of which is an STD. Googled both and the online images match what I have. She also advised me to apply vinegar to the bump to see if it turned white - it did not.
