There’s a few little bumps on my thingy. I’m really worried. Could they be warts? My wife is pregnant and I’m so worried in case it’s dangerous.
Can you help?
Thanks a bunch,
Thanks for contacting me about your problem. Firstly don’t panic. It may be that these are warts, BUT you may well have had the wart virus for many years in your body, and it’s only now for some reason they have become visible. Wart virus is very clever as it hides in the body tissues and only reveals itself when it feels like it. It doesn’t mean you have been unfaithful or promiscuous.
Does your wife have any warts, as these may appear for the first time in pregnancy, be a real nuisance, and then usually magically just disappear, as soon as the baby is born.
Warts rarely affect a pregnancy and please try not to worry about this.
Warts can be fairly easily treated, either with a freezing treatment or using different lotions/ creams.(For more information about genital warts go to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/genital-warts/)
There are other causes of lumps on the penis so I would encourage you to go and see your GP or local Sexual Health clinic. (Go to https://www.nhs.uk/Service-Search/Sexual-health-services/LocationSearch/1847, and type your postcode in the search bar to find your nearest clinic).
I hope this is all helpful.
