Pearly Penile Papules

Hirsuties Papillaries genitalis are small roof shaped bumps that appear on the rim or head of the penis. The bumps are usually skin coloured or white. The common medical term for these bumps is Pearly Penile Papules (PPP). 

PPP’s are a fairly common skin condition affecting those aged between 16-45 of the male population. They typically occur in up to 20-30% of males in the age of range of 16-45. They are non-cancerous growths, asymptomatic and non-malignant. They also do not carry any relation to one’s personal hygiene or lack of it. 

Why Pearly Penile Papules occur?

There is not a general agreed reason as to why PPP occurs but many specialists point to the fact that it may have something to do with an obstruction in the sweat glands or pores. Furthermore, what has been identified is that PPP is found more commonly in uncircumcised men; however, it can also be found in circumcised men, although it is much rarer. 

PPP left Untreated

If Hirsuties Papillaries Genitalis is left untreated then it will not completely disappear, but over time, may reduce in size. This could become a big problem for individuals who deal with many non-physical issues, like self-confidence, self-esteem and sexual rejection. If this is the case for an individual then would be wise to contact us here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa, and leave your PPP issue as a very distant memory. 

Dr Jha says

These bumps are a normal occurrence for many males, and due to their benign nature can be left alone, so long as they not affect one’s mental being. In which case, they should be removed”.
